I posted two pages of photos using iPhoto for iPad. On my iPad and my MacBook Pro (2010) I can see all the photos in Safari.  But on our 7 year old eMac running Leopard 10.5 there are only placeholders for the photos but no photos show.

 

Is it possible that the photos appear in a format that cannot be seen by this eMac on Leopard? Or is it possible that I need to download some extension for Safari?

 

Thanks for any comments.


Mac OS X (10.7.4), Also a Mac SE running 6.0.4 - not upgrading that!

    Hi Stephen,

     

    What form are the pics?

     

    Not directly related, but might get Perian before it's gone...

    Another thing that can cause just place holders is DNS problems.

     

    For 10.5/10.6, System Preferences>Network, unlock the lock if need be, highlight the Interface you use to connect to Internet, click on the advanced button, click on the DNS tab, click on the little plus icon, then add these numbers...

    I download and install Firefox for my seven-year-old eMac and everything works perfectly. I see all the photos instantly.

     

    Why would this work in Firefox and not in Safari 5.0.6?

     

    Thanks for any comments.

    Steve,

     

    Firefox, at least used to, use it's own setting for Proxies & DNS settings, where Safari used the System settings in Neteork Pref Pane, hence my recommendation above.
