Prints fine for me. Missing images are caused by outside linking, so it sounds like you're trying to print from a locally stored version of the page (that won't work).

I'm running Windows XP, IE 6. I use Zone Alarm and Earthlink's pop-up blocker, but the same thing happens when both are turned off. Also, print from the page, or use the print option on the page, doesn't matter. I empty my Internet cache on a regular basis also. This is the only site where the pictures disappear!

Here's a screen capture of print preview after using the print option on the tutorial page.

Thanks for the help,
Patricia

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Verify Sufficient Free Space on Your Primary Hard Disk
To check how much free disk space you have on your hard disk drive, follow these steps:

Quote:
Double-click My Computer on the desktop.
Right-click your primary hard disk (for example, drive C).
Click Properties.
The amount of free disk space should be 20 megabytes (MB) or more.
There is no minimum amount of free disk space required to run Office programs. However, most computers do require a certain amount of free space (usually around 20 MB) to open, close, and save files and to print documents.

If your hard disk has less than 20 MB of free disk space available, you may consider removing unused data files or temporary files or programs. After you have freed 20 MB or more on your primary hard disk, restart Windows and re-open the file.
2. Java:this may be a long shot, but some forums discussed this as a fix

Quote:
If you are experiencing red x's in Internet Explorer Windows it's a good chance that you don’t have the latest Java Software installed on your machine. Go to java.com to download it.

Patricia:

re: How come you're still having problems?
Who knows? It's no doubt something small, but sometimes this tech stuff goes way over my head.

Here's a not-so-elegant, but functional workaround.

Download the 5 attachments from this post and save on your hard disk. I downsized each of the high-res tutorial images to 7" wide and ~ 200 ppi, so they should fit onto an 8.5"-wide page and print reasonably well.

In the next post is the text of the tutorial. Open it, copy/paste into your word processing program, then insert each of the five images into it as indicated. You'll be in control of your own destiny.

Sorry 'bout all the hassle. It shouldn't be this difficult.

~Danny~

In IE6 under Tools - Internet Options Advanced tab, there is an option Print background colours and images. You may need to make sure this is checked.

Sigh. Thanks for the suggestion Christine, but, no, that isn't the answer either. Also, after re-checking yesterday, I can definitely print from other web sites and get the pictures without any problems. It's only the tutorials - all the tuts - from here! I agree that it's probably something to do with the way the pictures are linked, but I haven't a clue as to how to fix it. I guess I'll just use Danny's method to save the tuts. Thanks to everyone who's tried to help.

Sorry I have not responded sooner but I have been away. I just turned on the background print feature & that does not help. I am using XP Pro, IE 6 with Norton Internet Security 2004. I have lots of disk space & have not had a problem with printing in any other site. The pictures show up on the screen but do not print.

Thank you to Danny for the work-around but that becomes time consuming for many tutorials.

I have printed tutorials from this site before from other threads but not from this exact place.

Any other suggestions as these tutorials & this print feature are excellent?

Thank you for any help.

Bonnie

Alternative idea:

If you have Acrobat try printing to a PDF file.

If you do not have Acrobat there is a product called PDF995 which sets itself up as a printer and generates excellent PDF files.

There is a demo version available at www.pdf995.com/download.html.

Cost to buy a licence is only $9.95.

Do the pictures show if you use print preview? What printer are you using?

Christine, thank you for your reply. I am using an Epson 1280 printer. The images do not show up in the print preview but they show up when viewing the tutorials. There was an option in the printer to print all linked objects which I checked but it did not do any good.

I have never had a problem with any other site or even with printing in this forum from other threads. If I even had a clue what to check for, I could try to change some settings.

Any other suggestions?

Thank you,

Bonnie
