I have several jpg(s) that will not show up on the web.  Even when I go to their location by themselves, all that comes up is a red X.  Anyone know what might be causing this problem?

Hi,

Most probably it is because the images are missing. It might be that you use a webserver whereto you download images. If you get an X in a webpage, then the reason might be because the images actually are missing, the image-link refers to a wrong name etc. Doublecheck that you dont use filenames with spaces, odd characters and the images actually are present on the webserver.

One reason might be that the browser does not think that your JPEG actually is no a valid JPEG. How did you create the JPEG. If the image-file is corrupted, then ... you would see an X.

The problem might be with your browser. If somehow the images dont show up on your computer, but you have a friend with the same browser, and they show up on his - update/reinstall your browser. You can also check with another browser - if it is the browser they'll show up in for example the browser Opera (www.opera.com).

I also recommend you to send a link to the problem making page here, to let us understand the case better. Simple errors such as how blank space and %20 differ in image URL can cause this, which can be found out better if we have a look at your page.

Wish I can help

When you are looking at web page, check out the tag, which doesn't show image:
Eg. <img src=http://whatever.wherever.com/IMAGES/mypic.jpg>

Check if  http://whatever.wherever.com/IMAGES/mypic.jpg can be opened.

Check out permissions on the image files on your web-server.
If need be, change permissions to 755.

> chmod 755 *.jpg

As best I can tell the images must have been corrupted in some manner.  Though made them from the same PSD as several other images and at the same time, they must have been corrupted for some reason.  So resaving them as JPEGs did the trick.  Thanks for everyone's help

Dear themikecooke,
If your question is self-solved, it is not a good idea to accept one answer with grade C. Actually, experts avoid havind "C" grades in their profile. You'd better ask Community Support, to close the PAQ the question for you.
Just tried to help you follow the traditions in EE.
Good luck
