I am trying to figure out how to view nystamps images on a PC in say the following listing as their links no longer works:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nystamps-A....m1438.l2649

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I clicked on the link "View pictures 1-76" and it came right up.

I did, and it didn't! Obviously something awry - perhaps contact them direct.

It is a browser issue, works in Chrome and Firefox but does not work in IE and Edge.

I recommend having several browsers installed on your computer.

I'm not sure the prior posts are correct, or something has changed. In all my browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox), the text "Please use this link to view images 1-76" is not a hyperlink, it's just text. The listing has 9 sample images that come up right away, but not 76.

There are multiple errors (quite a few scripting errors) on the page (i.e. In Edge hit the F12 key and then click in console tab) that is causing dicey browser behavior. It is highly likely that these kinds of errors are dependent upon a multiple of variables like browser, browser version, operating system, operating system version, browser add-ons, etc.

Some browsers are strict about scripting errors and will refuse to generate any of the link while others are more lenient. But since scripting can be abused and open exploits, it is probably best that that refuse to render the link.

I was able to see all 76 images upon clicking the link in Chrome. On a different note, NY Stamps provides really crappy images. Low res, very small, and not expandable unless you copy and paste them into an image program like Irfanview. Even then, they zoom poorly. Good way to hide stuff.

I use Edge, I see a link and get all 76 pics. Must be something very wrong if everyone sees something different.

Also using Edge and was able to see all 76 images using the link. Strange.

One might be better off not being able to see the images.

Likewise in Safari.

No problems with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 with the latest security patches installed.

Try looking at the seller content in the listing:

https://vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com/itm/38...ue#itemTitle

instead of the listing:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/3829519341...ue#itemTitle

The mapping between the listing and the seller content within an iframe should be clear.

Thank you. That works very well.

If I bookmark the link and just change the item number for other listings, will they then show images as well?

I haven't tested that theory myself but will do so.

PS: I had tried on Edge, Chrome, and Firefox and none worked for me

It also works for other listings by just changing the item number.

Just as an aside, I know their problems but I may be purchasing for very different reasons.
