In Joomla! 1.5.8 images might not displaying on contact pages. This issue will be fixed in the next release (1.5.9), but until then here are the steps how you can fix it yourself:

1. Open components/com_contact/views/contact/tmpl/default.php with a text editor.

2. Find this line (line 52):

<?php echo JHTML::_('image', '/images/stories' . '/'.$this->contact->image, JText::_( 'Contact' ), array('align' => 'middle')); ?>

3. Change this line to the following and save the file:

<?php echo JHTML::_('image', 'images/stories' . '/'.$this->contact->image, JText::_( 'Contact' ), array('align' => 'middle')); ?>

A community member, Strats, posted the corrected file on the forum, so you can also download it there (registration is required on the forum to download files) and replace the original file with the new one.
