Viewing pictures

  aboutit 17:31 08 Dec 2003

I have windows XP and my friend sent me a Christmas card via email. The picture wasn`t visible and all I could see was a square at the top left hand corner with red white and blue patters in it.I went to the site and clicked on the same card and once again I couldn`t view it, however when I clicked on another card it was o.k.I managed to view 4 out of 6 cards on the site. Can someone explain why I can`t view certain cards and how I can overcome this problem Many thanks

Go to the site, right-click on the picture to get its properties, then copy the URL and paste it here. Perhaps it is a file format that you don't have the correct filters for.

Emptying the Internet Explorer cache has been known to cure many problems like this.

Irfan View click here is an excellent free picture viewer that can view almost every graphic file format known to mankind.

This is the correct link: click here

Each picture seems to be displayed by a Javascript.

Yes I can see some of the pictures not all namely Hark the Herald angels sing and White Christmas there are no pictures in the card square only the coloured scare at the top left hand corner.

I have Windows ME and have the same problem.

I used VoGs link to install java but it's made no difference.
