I upload an image file using the following format:

var body = fs.createReadStream(tempPath).pipe(zlib.createGzip());

var s3obj = new AWS.S3({params: {Bucket: myBucket, Key: myKey}});

var params = {

  Body: body,

  ACL: 'public-read',

  ContentType: 'image/png'


s3obj.upload(params, function(err, data) {

  if (err) console.log("An error occurred with S3 fig upload: ", err);

  console.log("Uploaded the image file at: ", data.Location);


The image successfully uploads to my S3 bucket (there are no error messages and I see it in the S3-console), but when I try to display it on my website, it returns a broken img icon. When I download the image using the S3-console file downloader I am unable to open it with the error that the file is "damaged or corrupted".

If I upload a file manually using the S3-console, I can correctly display it on my website, so I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with how I'm uploading.

What is going wrong?

post one more parameter to the file because it was zipped fixed the problem:

var params = {

  Body: body,

  ACL: 'public-read',

  ContentType: 'image/png',

  ContentEncoding: 'gzip'
