No.

Please try posting in a format other than .tiff

I see that. Will resave as jpeg (images from Grab, on a Mac, are tiff by default for some odd reason).

How's that?

NB this was originally done on a laptop, not via Tapatalk... but perhaps its the fact that it was a tiff, as you say..

(NBB: the missing apostrophe above is a joke.)

That worked. It must be something to do with TIFFs on my device.

Suggestions welcome.

Note: When I purchased my Mac a few years ago my Security (and Health) Consultant helped me make it secure by suggesting I download and install a multitude of plugins. I suspect that even the NSA can't get in and perhaps one of these is causing TIFFs to be invisible.

This is the same person who switches off all the built-in functionality of his computer because all he needs is a really big calculator?

This was the mistake ;)

To try and be a little more helpful: Apple do seem to have some oddities regarding what they decide not to support. You might find that installing a different browser on your Mac may help, as I believe some have different degrees of image support (and/or plugins).

Not at all. Displays perfectly on my MacBook Pro. I think the generous intervention of the Security Manager might be the problem here..
