Canvas - Known Issue - Students Can't View Embedded Images
Users are reporting sporadic issues viewing image files that are stored in Canvas and embedded in pages or assignments.
There are likely multiple reasons why students and other Canvas users may experience problems viewing course images.
This issue has been reported to sporadically affect:
- Safari users
- Chrome users running outdated versions of the browser
- Users in courses with large embedded images
There is also a replicable issue in which students are unable to view particular course images that are viewable for instructors. At this time, we have not determined what types of images are susceptible to this issue.
As of 10/8/2019, this issue is still present. Instructure is aware of the issue.
If multiple users are reporting problems with the same image, instructors can try compressing the image (for large file sizes) or re-uploading the image.
