Hola Marcelo,

- downloaded your key 796807F2493DB4285FBB8EFE9457553506482714, at first 
attempt,  from pgp.uni-mainz.de. As expected, it didnt' contain an image 
- downloaded again from sks.keyserver.penguin.de, this time complete 
with image file:
pub  1024D/06482714  created: 2003-12-23 expires: 2004-12-22
                      trust: unknown      validity: unknown

The photo, in its original size, is quite small. It's possible to zoom 
in and get a better view.

Running Mac OS X 10.2.3 with Gnupg 1.3.4, English.

Your key was correctly and fully uploaded to the servers.

Un abrazo,
