Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

When I upload an image to Stack Overflow, I cannot see my JPEG file in my post. It's all blank. I've tried it with different files, but gotten the same result.

Can you post links to the questions or answers that are having problems? –  Randolpho Sep 13 '10 at 21:12
    
Can you try with a different image format, like GIF? –  Pëkka Sep 13 '10 at 21:15
    
Original question, but it uses a different host (I can see image just fine). You can also try uploading right here at Meta (edit your question), it uses the same API. –  BalusC Sep 13 '10 at 21:50
    
For answers about i.stack.imgur.com see Is there any work-around if you are somewhere where images are blocked?. –  Arjan Nov 27 '13 at 20:01

I see the images just fine in your post.

Could imgur.com be blocked at your workplace?

You're right Jeff. After what you mentioned, I noticed that we can view, create, or edit posts in StackOverFlow, but we cannot upload any snapshot. I just asked them to unblock it. Thanks for the support. –  paradisonoir Sep 14 '10 at 14:39

When imgur.com is blocked, then to at least be able to view images that were uploaded before May 2011, and hence were using the regular imgur.com domain, not the specific stack.imgur.com domain:

  • See fretje's userscript to replace it with the alternative filmot.com domain (a proxy).

  • Or, for these very Stack Exchange sites (or any other site where jQuery is available), the following quick & dirty script can be used as a bookmarklet, or can simply be pasted into the location bar (just like an address/URL) after a page has loaded:

    javascript:function r(i,v){return v===undefined?v:v.replace(/(\w*.?)imgur.com/i,'$1filmot.com');}$('a').attr('href',r);$('img').attr('src',r);

Beware: filmot.com is not affiliated with Imgur; I would NOT recommend signing in through that mirror but to always use imgur.com to access your private account, if applicable. Also, if you are very sensitive about your privacy, you might not want to use it?

It seems there's also an official imgur.com alternative domain, imgur.voxcdn.com. But that uses the very same IP addresses so is probably blocked too.
