Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I encounter the problem like you talk, but still can't fix the problem done by all steps of the article.
the problem website was design by our company, I guess we should notify the website owner.
anywhere thanks you very much your comments.
I am having exactly the problem you described with red x's, and I have already taken a look at "Show Pictures" and Auto-Resize.
I am connecting this laptop to the Net via a ComSocks "proxy server/gateway" set up on my main system, where the modem resides. Slick stuff, really.
Is there any chance that's part of the problem? It's a quick hookup all things considered though a dialup, but I just can't see what's up with this red x biz.
Please help, and thanks much. :=)
One thing to try is to right-click on one of the red-x's select properties, and see the URL for the picture. Copy/paste that URL (it is selectable) into the address bar and see if it works that way.
What does this mean i am just getting red x and have done all in the article ?
Not sure where you got that, but there's nothing at that link. The red x is legitimate - it means there's nothing to get.
I am building a website and I use frontpage 2000 and the problem is that on my computer(XP)Sp2 some gif,jpeg are not showing up but on older computers(98) shows all of them! What am I doing wrong?
I am having the exact problem you described above. I have items listed on ebay and the pictures appear to me but not to others.
I did a test by moving my stored photos to a removable disc and the auction pictures disappeared.
How can I alter the path of these pictures so they will show up? I have hundreds of auctions! I am desperate and will appreciate any help!
It depends on how you're creating your HTML. Make sure your pictures are placed on a web server somewhere, and then make sure that, as the article instructs, the pictures are referenced with an "http://..." type of reference rather than a "C:\...". The later is your local hard drive, and no one but you can see that.
I too am having problems with the red "X". I've gone down the entire list of settings suggested on the MS Support page and everything is set correctly. I've also disabled my Norton internet security, anti-virus, firewall and Spybot. Nothing has helped.
The other notable is that when I right-click on the red "X" to examine the type or format, I don't even get a properties option. All I get is the small window with unselectable options to "COPY", SAVE PICTURE AS ...". SAVE BACKGROUND AS ..." and the last option IS selectable which is "SELECT ALL".
I recently did a system restore and cleaned house. Before I did that I had no problem viewing just about ANY image with the exact same protection software. After the restore I added two elements that were not there previous. (A) I updraded to IE6-SP1 and (B) I added "SPYBOT".
Does any of this help point to a better possible solution?
Whenever I try to make my website have pictures on Internet Explorer the pictures come up and I can see them - great! But others can't.
So I try making it on AOL and all the people on AOL can see the pictures but those people on Internet Explorer can't.
Ive tried everything you have said and nothing works.
Any ideas on how to let everyone see the pictures?
