Description

I faced with the same issue:

http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/211117/map-tip-display-text-in-qgis-2-16-pictures-not-showing-up-anymore

Map tips are not showing images correctly; there are scrollbars instead.

My formula:

<h2> [% "filename" %] </h2>
<br>
<img src="[% "filepath" %]" width="400" />

Before (2.10.x) I saw the filename and the photo below correctly.

Enclosing content in divs worked as I posted in my answer on SE:

<div style="width:400;height:320">
<div style="height:20; margin: 0 auto;">
[% "filename" %]
</div>
<div style="height:300; margin: 0 auto;">
<img style="max-width:400px; max-height:300px;" src="[% "filepath" %]" />
</div>
</div>

However, I believe many have formatted they map tip html according to this answer (as did I):

This issue is related to the plain and common practice mentioned by this SE answer.

Seems now you need to specify image size and follow strict HTML rules, then it works.

Can you provide an example of working HTML code? The one specified by Adam Szieberth doesn't work.

The HTML code that used to work for me pre 2.14.x:

[%CONCAT('<img src="',"filepath",'" width="640"></img>')%]

The new HTML code as recommended above doesn't work for me:

<div style="width:400;height:320">
<div style="height:20; margin: 0 auto;">
[% "filename" %]
</div>
<div style="height:300; margin: 0 auto;">
<img style="max-width:400px; max-height:300px;" src="[% "filepath" %]" />
</div>
</div>

Below are a bunch of images trying to explain my problem as clearly as possible and my system information. Does anyone know why Map tips don't work (they are not working on a whole bunch of Linux machines, unable to test on Windows). Is there an error in the code I am using?

When using map tips, the filename of the image comes up, but the image itself is blank:

The HTML code is as specified above:

The attribute table showing filepath:

The weird thing is that identify features works:

When filepath is set to be 'Photo':

Nice to finally find that this works when adding "file://" to the path.
But still it's a regression from the state before, when a simple path like it is generated e.g. from Photo2shape-plugin does not work anymore.
Neither intuitive nor to be expected.
Furthermore it's not documented anywhere, and after month of not being able to get some work done which would have relied on that function, I accidently stumbled upon this bug report.

The most portable way to use this (assuming you have the images in the same folder as the project) currently (tested on 3.2 - ubuntu) is:

<img src="file://[%  @project_home  %]/[% "your_relative_picture_path" %]" />
