I have a netbook running as a server for some web development I do. It's running Ubuntu.

Whenever I put images on it, they get corrupted and do not display correctly.
I've viewed them properly on OSX and Windows; neither of which say they are corrupted.

Firefox is telling me "Image corrupt or truncated" ... here is a screen shot. top left is the way it should look, bottom right is the way the netbook is serving the images.

enter image description here Any ideas what is going on?

How are you determining the corruption? –  Oliver Salzburg Feb 29 '12 at 17:25
    
What sort of images are they? Could you provide a sample, preferably both before and after corruption? –  Eroen Feb 29 '12 at 17:47

Are you putting the images on your netbook through FTP? Be sure you're in BINARY mode. –  charlesbridge Feb 29 '12 at 19:41
    
I've tried FTP in Binary, wget via SSH, and manually dropping them into a folder as a shared drive. –  mike Feb 29 '12 at 19:48
