Why don't I see any images while using Image Swap?

AdBlock Premium will replace ads on a page whenever possible. It will not replace ads if there are no appropriately sized images to insert into the ad area. If you're not seeing any images, try this:

  1. Pause AdBlock by clicking the AdBlock icon in the browser toolbar and selecting Pause on this site.
  2. Reload the page.
  3. Look for the ads that are being blocked.

First, are there any ads on the page? If there are, are they tiny? Weirdly shaped? Very large?

If the page contains ads when AdBlock is paused but the ads are not being replaced with pictures when AdBlock is running, here are two reasons why:

  • If the site doesn't provide the size of an ad, AdBlock can't determine what size image to replace it with. AdBlock will simply block or hide it instead.
  • If the ad area is smaller than 60 pixels wide by 60 pixels tall, no image will be inserted. AdBlock will simply block or hide it instead.
