I have troubles with the OpenCms native image scaling mechanism.

Test 1) At first, I have tried to use the <cms:img> tag (experimenting with
different values of width, height and scaletype), but the result is an image
resized by the browser. That is, in the resulting html I have an <img> tag
with attributes width and height set to the expected values, but an src
attribute pointing to a perfect copy of the original image (i.e. an image
with the same width and height of the source image).

Test 2) Then, I have visited the "Test for the 'cms:img' tag" page inside
the OpenCms documentation of my OpenCms installation; what I get is a page
containing the same test image repeated in each box (i.e. it is not resized
as in, for example,

Test 3) I have tried to point my browser directly to an image URL passing
the right querystring (e.g.
but nothing happens: the result is -again- an image with the same width and
height of the source image.

These tests have been done on an installation of OpenCms 7.5.1 with Tomcat 6
+ Apache with mod_jk on Windows and Linux. I have tried to upgrade to
OpenCms 7.5.2 but nothing changes.

I have checked that image.scaling.enabled is set to true in
I really can't figure out what's wrong...do you have any idea?

Thank you,
