To fix this issue I had to revert change the permissions to more realistic values, 775 for folders and 644 for files. These can be changed here;


line 219, change 0640 to 0644 line 541, change 0750 to 0755


I had the same problem, images only showed in the front-end. I haven't discovered the cause but the solution was to change web browser.

This is what I've discovered thus far.

These browsers DON'T WORK

  • Google Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit)
  • Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0

These browsers DO WORK

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.413.15063.0
  • Mozilla Firefox 53.0.3 (32-bit)

Just as a followup to what Kane said since I cannot comment, if you find that it works on the browsers he mentioned it's probably because Adobe Flash Player is disabled on the others. Try enabling it on Chrome/Edge or whatever browser you are using and see if that fixes the problem.

sudo bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
