Geek Article and Review System License Holder 
Default Submission/preview of new article/review/link goes to blank screen w/ JPEG image type

This is a follow -up from this thread (http://www.thevbgeek.com/showthread.php?t=1969&page=23) where my problem was first documented.

-Vbulletin version 3.6.5 w/ VBSEO 3.0.0
-GARS 2.1.5

In Vbulletin AdminCP -> Vbulletin Options -> Image Options, Tried setting Image Processing Library to two options:
-GD
-ImageMagick 6

Neither one fixes this issue. Avatars and Image Uploader (Vbimghost 1.0) work okay with JPEG images on both settings (GD/ImageMagick 6) but either gives the same problem with GARS.

If GIF images are uploaded or "Suppress Upload of Image" is used for Article/Review type, the article submits fine. If the default image is a JPEG (and nothing is put in the upload box) it preview/posts fine, but selecting any JPEG off the HDD causes the problem. I've checked Apache logs, PHP config, re-installed GARS, etc. with no solution yet.

Thanks again for a great product, I can't wait to finish configuring it!

Is there normally JPEG support listed in PHP info? If so that sounds like our issue. How do we fix this?

GD generally comes with jpeg support. GARS uses GD to create resized jpegs and gifs. Right now, there is no other support for other image libraries. Can you ask your host if it is possible to enable GD support for jpeg and gifs?
