I had to build custom checks on my CF11 dev environment to display "placeholder" image and not the actual image preview - works fine on the production CF10 server. Buggers me. Custom check as very hard to develop a system that works LIVE and not in production (albeit with differing version of CF!). Lame! Same code different result.

Not able to repro the bug. Tried this with a png file located in the local drive: <cfimage source="image.png" destination=newimage.png" action="write" overwrite="true" /> This works as expected in CF11 with default Java as well as with Java 8 Update 11 Please provide more information to reproduce the bug.

I'm having the same exact issue on CF 11,0,03,292866. It only happens in certain PNG files, many of which seem to come from Apple devices. I've attached "IMG_3581" from my iPhone (from my daughter's princess game, don't judge) that is causing this error, using the BLOB data as follows in cfscript. Variables.TheImage = ImageNew(BLOBData);
