Please give exact details on what is happening.

  • Is this playing sound through your audio system?
  • How long does it play for, what kind of sound is it?
  • If you change the sound-system to None in Blender's System Preferences, does this still happen?... (Also worth testing if SDL for example has the same issue).
  • Does this happen every time, if you add a second image texture does it happen again?
  • Does saving the image as a PNG and loading that cause the same issue?

Hi Campbell

  1. Yes
  2. 3 Marks, kind of Windows system sound
  3. None, SDL or OpenAL make no difference, sound always play after loading image
  4. Yes
  5. No, save image as png with paint and loading does not play sound

Some more Q's

  • does this happening opening the JPEG in the image window.
  • if you re-save the image (open and save as JPEG with new name)
  • if you save the blend file and load it again... does it happen on load (since it must load the image to display it)

Also, you didnt say how long the plays for.

confirmed on buildbot Blender-2.75.0-git.7fab7b6-AMD64

its standard "Beep" everytime when you load only "this" image

mingw-w64 builds dont have this issue
