I.E 11 images.

Just wondering is it a current problem with I.E 11 to not show images or have done something wrong.

I've been coding for quite some time now and had a break for a while came back to build a site.

Now adding an image is very basic stuff but for some reason I.E is not displaying it.

Checked the file directory, validated html with w3c, works fine on other browsers.

image displays when using the background url() css feature but not with a simple <img src=" " alt=""/> tag.

this is doing my nut in now.

Any ideas?

Hi Harry, can you include your code, so we can see where the problem might be? :)

Could be a few things, maybe;

  • Did you use a closing tag? <img ... />

  • Try adding this css img {zoom: 1 !important;}

  • Check if your browser enables images, look here http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000813.htm

  • Last but not least (this happened to me once and caused a major headache!!) Open your images in Photoshop and check if they are in RGB mode. If they are in CMYK mode, they will probably not show up. Convert to RGB, save and upload them to check if everything works well.

Hope this helps

Code below as requested.

I have gone through everything that was mentioned to try and to no luck.

On a strange note one or 2 of the images on the other pages were displaying fine, however did not have any alt text. once the alt text was added the image vanished.

          <img id="logo" src="/images/logo1.png" alt="website logo" />

Still having this issue, I even reset all browser settings and created a test page with no css and moved the image to the index directory and to no avail.

That's a good fallback. Inspire people who still use IE to go Chrome!

can you post a live link to this issue, or is it in a testing development?

Just on my pc locally, which might be the cause. This is driving me insane.

Never had an issue with images since I first started college 4 years ago with this stuff lool.

Kill me now!

I get your frustration. Seems that more people have this problem though. So your image html is fine, since every other browser acts normal. The IE settings are set to display images. Cleared cookies, cache, etc? Images in RGB mode. IF all of the above fail, I've still got an ace up my sleeve... Remove IE permanently, ignore that sh*t and your life will be great again :) (not the best solution, but prevents a serious headache)

I will try a re install of I.E

I could just forget about it for now and perhaps add a Js prompt to download chrome haha
