images will not resize since GZIP compression was enabled

Support Request


My images will not resize since GZIP compression was enabled on my server.

I can I have gzip enabled on the server and still use CE Image?  When I try and use CE code I get a 500 error

{exp:ce_img:single src=”{your_custom_field}” width=“500”}
{exp:ce_img:single src=”/images/imagelfile.jpg” width=“500”}

if I use

{exp:ce_img:single src=“” width=“500”} no code is returned but the page loads
