[Image-SIG] Image.show doesn't show image

I believe "show()" simply opens the image file using the associated viewer app for that filetype.  For instance, your script successfully displays the image in XNView on my Vista machine.

Start by verifying your file associations are correct for that file extension.  Try double-clicking that image in Windows explorer, does it open correctly in Windows Photo Gallery?
