Problem with /html-template <file>

Hi,

I have simple template

<html>
 <head>
 <style>
 body {
 margin: 0px;
 }
 img {
 position: absolute;
 top: 0; left: 0;
 width: 100%; height: 100%;
 }
 p {
 font-size: 100px;
 color: white;
 background: grey;
 position: absolute;
 bottom: 0;
 left: 0;
 width: 100%;
 filter: alpha(opacity=50);
 padding: 20px;
 }
 </style>
 </head>
 <body>
 <img src="{image}"/>
 <p>{name}</p>
 </body>
 </html>
 
But when I run command - Pauthor.exe /source cxml MyCollection.cxml /html-template MyTemplate.htm /target deepzoom output\MyCollection-dz.cxml, I geting collection with empty image.

What's wrong?

Without more information, it's hard to tell exactly, but you may be running into problems if your images are significantly larger than the output size of your template.  The underlying IE component will occasionally drop images which require too much scaling to fit.  You can try pre-scaling your images to no larger than the output size of your template, and see if that helps.

Hi, aminer

My images is small (240x320). What is absolute path image? I used source cxml with include transform image.

Another potential problem is that if your "{image}" tag produces a relative path, the path must be relative to the location of the HTML template file.  Otherwise, you'll want to provide an absolute location.
