Hey InterWebMercials,

Try clicking and dragging the red dot. This should resize it because it looks like it has just been resize to nothing but it is there. Tell me if this works.

Can you try to update your site? Does it work in the published site?

No it does not view, i did not publish just page view, it happens when it wants to... But i have had the same problems with another one of my sites. Also i have cleared my cache so that problem is ruled out, i have scanned my computer using trend micro, and windows defender. so it seems to be unknown what the problem is at this time...

This is a trick I had to learn.. it may not apply to you.. but who knows!

After you uploaded your images into your file manager - click on "update". Then, try to insert your image into your site.

Did you edit your picture using Photoshop?

The problem could be that the images have a CMYK color mode attached to them - which is not web friendly. You should be able to set your color mode to RGB-16bit and you will then be able to upload them. An easy way to do this is instead of just selecting "save", choose "save for web" in Photoshop. The image will then be automatically saved in the correct format.

1st are u using ie7-8? if so try firefox instead. if u view http://www.shoppealots.com/ in ie7-8 it doesn't look like a good site when you use firefox it look the way I planned it. do u also need all images on one page? If two work good and third messes thing up you may want to change the third image to a new page. Wish I could help more but I can't good luck.

What your url?

Hi Papa.
I am using FireFox which can be seen in the screenshot above... I do not have a URL at this time as the site has not been launched/published... I only have to put 1 picture and this occurs.

sometimes sites look different after being published. you can always publish using a www.whatever.sythantic.com name and change it latter. A live site can be helpful and you can always unpublished it if you do not like.

Hello,

Can you give us the exact steps you are taking to put the image on your page as well as tell us the file type and size.

As papa says, it would be useful if we could see what it looks like live.

Thanks,
Emmy

I know I said this before but sometimes we can misunderstand each other. This will be the last time I say it... I promise! =) After step 1, update your site to ensure your image gets saved in your file manager. Then, go onto step 2.
