Website photographs - help

  ianeon 06:10 07 Jun 2008

Sometimes when I access a website such as the BBC, or any of the national newspapers, where a photograph should be, there are the letters "AL7.0" - Can anyone tell why this should be and how do I get to see the photographs - Thank you

Do you use Avid Liquid?

I'm not on AOL.
I don't use Avid Liquid.
Thank you for your interest in my problem

I reckon Snec is definitely on the right track.

AL7.0 (which is normally associated with Avid Liquid) can also be associated with other Video editing software, such as Pinnacle's Studio series.
If you use any Video editing software, this may be where your AL7.0 is coming from!

You could also check your Settings as follows - in IE Tools>Internet Options>Advanced under Multimedia check that all the boxes are ticked, except 'Enable image toolbar' and 'Show image download placeholders'.

Technotiger - Thank you - I tried that, but sadly it made no difference

Of course, it could be that the sites in question could be at fault - it would not surprise me to learn that those like the BBC for instance, possibly use Avid Liquid, a very expensive program.

Also, does it happen with other sites showing photographs? Here is a good example, loads and loads of photographs, (Just happens they are all, or mostly all, taken by my son Steve.) click here
