Hi all,

it drives me nuts and it's not even an interesting issue.

I'm using the [image] obj from moonlib.
Works good on Linux, but I'm teaching workshop in which students may be
using OSX.

On some OSX machines it loads properly the images, on others it loads one
image but not the others (they are all gif imgs in the same folder), or it
only properly loads an image after manually send an [open something(
message. I think it might be related to folders permission, but the issue
is different on each single osx machine and I don't have a mac to debug.

I tried also [iem_image] but I had the same kind of instability on OSX.
I usually create the [image], open a file and save. Works on Linux.
Adding a [loadbang] does not help.

Is there some tricks or something I'm missing so to use it properly?
or which is the most reliable and cross-compatible way to display an image
in Pd?
