This was discussed in June with Topic "Black boxes replace images in Mojave (Was "No subject")"

This is an excerpt of Mark Waddingham´s comment:

In my case this was the cause.

I´ve dragged the source image to /library/scripts/colorsync/ to remove the color profile and imported it again into LC and added it to the stack. After that all was fine.

I'm not sure why. Nothing in my code does anything of the sort. In fact I have no idea HOW to do that! (Although if I DID have some idea, I would probably make use of it.)
