Image Uploading

When I upload an image, instead of seeing it previewed as a file, I see a lot of garbled characters.

Could I be doing something wrong other than just browsing and uploading a photo?

    Does the image you are uploading have a file extension? Can you attach the problem image here? I'll be happy to try uploading the image locally to see if I run into the same behavior.

    Thanks for attaching that file. I tried uploading it in my local 6.7 instance in Firefox, IE, Safari, and Chrome (all on Windows) and it worked just fine. Do you know if the new image asset you are creating has any asset factory plugins attached to it that could be contributing to this behavior?

    Thanks for checking, no there are no plugins associated, maybe I am uploading it wrong?

    Typically, image files are uploaded one at a time via the New menu. When you click to create a new File asset from this menu, you can either enter some file content in the Data box OR use the File Upload field to browse to a file on your local machine.

    If you are entering content into the Data box AND browsing to a file on your local machine, this could be part of the problem (and has been corrected for 6.7 it appears). So, if this is what you are doing, try leaving the Data field completely empty and then simply browse to a file on your machine.
