*** SOLVED *** Some stock photos don't show up in Preview mode

Post by Paracelsus » Sun Dec 09, 2018 9:30 pm

I am puzzled by the fact that some background stock photos DO and some DON'T show up in PREVIEW mode.

I use the same exact settings with all the background photos and I cannot figure out what characteristic of some photos make them NOT show up in Preview mode. Please advise.

Maybe the filenames are not valid (web safe)?

Well, the file names are simple and usual names.

What is strange that ONLY STOCK PHOTOS (purchased and demo versions) do not show up in Preview mode, even after using "snipping tool" as a last resort. In other words, only those photos do not show up which I want to use, Mind boggling... Everything else, i.e. every other saved image does show up OK in Preview.

Is there any way I could get some live help with this issue via TeamViewer? (I am willing to pay for any assistance.)

You were right, Pablo. Thanks for the suggestion!

I used the free online Gillmeister Software's "Generate web-safe file names" service and all "misterious" image problems have resolved immediately.
