I have a rather weird issue with displaying jpg images on lab computer. It works perfectly fine on my laptop but when I try to load it on my lab computer the image doesn’t show. Instead, an empty shape appears.
Basically, instead of this:
I get this:
Interestingly, this only happens with images made in COREL that serve as instructions. However, when I tested a sample jpg picture like the one below, it works just fine:
[can’t display the working picture due to 2 picture topic limit]
I use psychopy 1.83.04 (on both computers) and define an examplary instruction image as follows:
win = visual.Window ([800,600], allowGUI=False, monitor=‘testMonitor’, units=‘pix’, color=[0.000, 0.000, 0.000], fullscr=True)
Instr1 = visual.ImageStim(win, image=‘INSTR 1.jpg’,size=(1000,800))
and then use the draw method in the main task:
It does not seem to be a matter of size or shape of the jpg, as I experimented with both with same effects. I have no clue what might be causing such behavior on the lab computer (which, admittedly, is rather old). I would be greatful for your help!
