Internet Explorer 6 does not show images in JPG format, although http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283807 claims it can.

But when I try to type something like

http://example.com/exampleimage.jpg

in the URL bar, it won't display.

Any explanations or workarounds for this?

IME IE6 sometimes doesn't like urls without www prefixes. does this make a difference? can you link to a problem image, in case it's a server or MIME type issue? this link works fine in IE6 for me:

http://www.boldfish.co.uk/wp-content/themes/traction/images/sidebar/sidebox.jpg

as does:

  • I checked it, prepending a `www` does not make a difference. PNG btw. works fine, just having trouble with JPGs. Thanks, anyway. The MYYN over 6 years ago
  • try the jpgs I added Tony Crockford over 6 years ago
  • Yes, your jpeg works, my jpg doesn't. It's ... miraculous. I checked the content-type sent from my server (it's ``image/jpeg``) so it *should* work ... The MYYN over 6 years ago

Can you check if your JPG file was created using a CYMK colourspace and not an RGB one?
