I've had success with images in JPG, GIF, PNG and SWF format. The only one that doesn't work is animated GIFs because Flash doesn't support them. I'm hoping they'll work better in XENITH when it hits the road.
JPG is obviously the most common image type and works for most images except diagrams but if people create diagrams in the free Open Office Impress (which is basically a free PowerPoint lookalike) it has the option to export as a swf file. They stay really crisp however much they are resized.

Subject: Re: Hello and question about images on Xerte Online Toolkits
Check your image type only certain ones are supported and if they don't upload you don't get any errors. I did that module a year ago and learnt by experience! Another thing to consider is resizing before you upload so things are roughly the right size and far easier to manage. I think it's only jpg and gif that work but I'm in a car park and can't look back n check

I am having problems uploading images to any page using the playpen at www.techdisplayxerte.info. I wonder if there are any known problems. The 'symptoms' are:
> 1. On a Mac (OS 10) no image will upload (image counter stays at 0%). This is the same for both Firefox and Safari (latest versions of the browser).
> 2. On a Windows PC (Windows 7), I can upload an image but the image does not appear on the page when I play the resource, even though I have clicked 'publish'.
> Once (and only once) did an image display, but when I replaced the image with a better one, it now does not appear again.
> Thanks in advance for any advice. If this query should go to another list or help resource, please advise.
