Issue

When I run the Linux curl command on a normal image URL, like www.abc.com/image.jpg it works, but not on a Scene7 image URL.

Solution

Escape the characters (see the linux documentation for more information).

the "{" and the "&" are special characters for curl:
& = start a new sub-shell
{ = start an expression

For example:

curl "http://s7d4.scene7.com/is/image/TechSupport/?src=ir\{TechSupportRender/509?sharpen=1\}\&wid=340"

If the Image Server doesn't accept this command, use a ruleset to translate the Scene7 URLs to a more traditional URL format.
