Using Internet Explorer I get exactly the same issue.

Firefox is slightly different in appearance but no better.

So, it looks like it is a website issue but maybe someone else will come along and give it a whirl so that you have a second opinion.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Question for phil22:

Why de-select "Show Image Download Placeholders"?


Question for aprilsurprenant:

Are you able to see images on other websites?


Speculation:

Could "Show Pictures" be turned off only for websites in a
certain security zone (set in Internet Options)?

Hi Phil22 thanks for your reply

I've varified through internet options the following suggestions:
"Show Image Download Placeholders" is UNchecked.
"Show Pictures" is checked
*No change*
I've also updated my display drivers
*No change*

*Currently running win 7 IE9*

Hey Jeff
I can see images on other web pages. In fact I can see other images on this particular site with the execption of this one image I can't view. (I was directed to a site for college purposes in which viewing all images is necessary)

So others taking the course can view the image?

Do you know whether it is a JPG, GIF, PNG, SVG, or something else?

Give us the link so that we can see if there is a website issue.

Otherwise, right click the GIF image and see if there is an option to save it on your computer. If so put the GIF file on your desktop (or wherever you can best find it). Double click the saved file and see if it opens and displays a picture. If it doesn't we can then take it further.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yep, tried it with other computers, different operating systems and IE versions.
Same result. Looks like its a matter of waiting until the website spots it.
