FAQ: Why can't the minimum and maximum visible scales be changed for Image service sub-layers in ArcMap?

Question

Why can't the minimum and maximum visible scales be changed for Image service sub-layers in ArcMap?

Answer

If an image service contains sub-layers that have specific visible scale ranges, their values cannot be changed in ArcMap.
This is designed to prevent performance problems for the ArcIMS server in cases where the sub-layers represent very large data sources.
