I can't get pictures to show up. Maybe too much security? Help!

Hi everyone, I’m a newbie here. This is my first post. Also, I’m not a techi, just an inventor so pls answer my question in tiny kindergarten steps & language. Assume I know nothing & U will probably be right! Lately, I have been having difficulty getting pics to show up in my email / gmail. Not all, but some. Today I tried to do a patent search & couldn’t get any pics, images or drawings to show up on the USPTO site via google. I would appreciate any help you can give me. btw, I hope I posted this in the right place. If not, pls give me a correct site to post this question. thx Inventing JOy

Welcome to the forum, InventingJoy.

I would’ve replied earlier, but I wasn’t in the right state of mind when I first saw your topic. I also use Gmail, but I don’t recall ever encountering this issue. Usually with other webmails it’s caused by some security setting (i.e. to prevent potential spam or disturbing images from external / unknown senders). I don’t think Gmail has such a setting, but I’m no expert at it either. I just searched with Google and found others with this problem who were able to fix it by adjusting an Internet Explorer option.
