Some common issues with images

Images are not full-width on the mobile devices

In many cases, when you add images on your page and see they are full-width on the desktop device but when viewing on the mobile phones, they are smaller and not full-width.


Explain for this issue is because the images on the mobile device have padding-left or padding-right from All devices and they are not set up full width – 100% option.

To fix this issue, you need to check the padding of the image by switching to the mobile device and replace the current padding to 0px in the Styling tab or set it Full width – 100% option in the General tab like the image below:

Remember to Publish and go to the Live view to see the result:

Some images do not display on the Safari browser

In many cases, the images on your pages do not display on the Safari browser but they still work on the Chrome browser.

One of the most popular reasons is that the images that you are using are the webp format. In this case, Safari does not support this format.

You can see this image for example:

However, if you check on the Chrome browser, the image is displayed:

If you still want the image to be displayed on the Safari, you need to convert the image into JPG or PNG format. In this case, the image was converted to JPG and it works on the Safari:

We highly recommend you to use only Chrome for the best experience. You can check this article to know PageFly works best with the latest version of the Google Chrome browser.

Make sure you are do not use the webp format if you want the image to be displayed on the Safari. If you convert the image into JPG already but the issue still is there, please do not hesitate to contact us via the Live chat window so we can help you solve the problem.
