Image not showing on Android Motorola Droid Razr Due to Color Mode (RGB vs. CMYK)

Est. Read Time: ~Keurig Brew-Time

Remember that really annoying Internet Explorer bug that wouldn’t display images with the CMYK color mode? The image mysteriously doesn’t show up and all you see is a red x. Well the issue has come back to life in a new device!

When you have a content system that allows for end users to upload their own photo the root cause of a development ‘bug’ could be something completely unknown to the developer, like how the image was saved out.

To fix the color mode of the image follow these steps:

  • 1. Open the image in Photoshop
  • 2. Go to Image > Mode and select RGB
  • 3. Save the file
