    Have you tried to embed the image in an empty XHTML page, rather than try and open the image directly with the browser, as I think this is where you are going wrong.

    Make a page with the following code and try the code below, then save it as taichi.html or something.

    You may have to modify the src tag depending on where you image is located. You could use the full URL, as provided by you above, if you wanted.



    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <html xmlns="">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <title>Taichi Workshop</title>
    <img src="/images/content/taichi_workshop.jpg" alt="taicji workshop"/>

    Open in new window

    I wasn't aware there was a limit, but it is to do with the size of your image file, which is huge at 1.4MB btw, and will annoy your users.

    You should try and keep image file sizes to a minimum to make them easily accessible to your users.

    I have resized the image and it works fine in IE now.

    Copy this resized image and upload it to your web server, replacing the behemoth you are using at the moment!
