Known Issues

Question 1

Question 1: When trying to view the images in this collection, I get a black page instead of the image. How can I view the image?
Answer 1: When the image comes up as a black screen, but you can see the details at the top of the viewing window, it means that the pixel size is too large for the Image Viewer. However, you can use the “+” and “-“signs on the sizing tool to adjust the image size and bring it up. You can also use the cursor, by pressing the left mouse button, to move the image up and down on the screen.
