Is /path/to/myImage.gif a full path or a partial path? I ask because you didn’t specify a base URL.
htmlString actually looks like:

<base href=“file:/absolut/path/to/PicturesFolder/“ />

<img alt=“alternate” src=“./image67.gif" />

I also tried (following the suggestion from Jens):
<img alt=“alternate” src=“file:///absolut/path/to/PicturesFolder/image67.gif” />
Still no picture.

Do the path components have the correct case if the image is on a case-sensitive volume?
Yes, they have. And yes, the volume is case-sensitive.

Also, both:
[ self.webView loadHTMLString: htmlString baseURL: nil ];
[ self.webView loadHTMLString: htmlString baseURL: urlTo “/“ ];
give the same result.

htmlString contains: …<img alt=“alternate” src=“/path/to/myImage.gif” /> ….

WKWebView just shows a rectangle containing: “alternate”.

WebView shows the picture.

Are there any special steps needed to make WKWebView show images?
