I have tried to upload photos that are jpg, and I keep being told it failed...   Can someone help with why I can't upload photos?

    What size are the images?  How many MB?

     

    Right click on the image, select "properties" and check the image size.  If over 2.0 MB, that might be the cause.

      Hi Sea Texan, they are between 36-40 KB.   I'm not super computer literate but I have uploaded photos before to other blogs and web sites.

          I know, that's why I can't understand it.

            I will bet anything it is because you are still being monitored.  When I was being monitored when I first joined, I had to post, and get enough credits so they knew I was a real person and not a bot or spammer.  I could not even send Direct Messages.  I am sure once you are no longer monitored you can upload.  Keeping posting towards other discussions and get some credits .

              You are probably correct Sea Texan.   I joined many months ago but just started posting more recently.   By the way, I think I found a way to get them on, but they were not rotated, and I did not see a way to rotate them clockwise right so I just deleted it until I can find out how to do that...    UGH!   Thanks for all of your help and understanding.

    Hi DrLandrum.  Apologies for the frustration this has caused.  I'd like to help trouble shoot this issue.  Would you mind sending me additional details about what you've been experiencing?  Thanks!

      Hi carat, and thank you for your assistance!   I can upload the pics but when I click on send I get messages that say error, I'm not allowed to do this...   I've tried one pic at a time and I've also tried several and get the same error msg.

        Hi again DrLandrumSeaTexan has brought up a good point.  There were some changes made to make sure that the site wasn't getting spammed.  I've gone ahead and made a few changes within your account.  Would you mind trying to post again?  Please let me know if you are still experiencing issues.

          Thanks for your help carat!   I can understand why the site needs to be careful.    I think I can post them now, only  need to figure out how to edit and rotate on the site.   They  are not upside down on my computer, but once uploaded to the photography page they are.

            So glad to hear, DrLandrum! We are aware of this and are currently working on a fix.  I run into this frequently when adding photos.  This is a little silly, but one thing that has helped is rotating the pictures prior to uploading.  Let me know how it all works out... Looking forward to seeing your album

              No matter which way I rotate my pics they are on the side when i upload to this site.

    Are you uploading photos to discussions (or, in other words, using the little camera icon in the format bar, above) or are you trying to create a photo album?  The size limitation, mentioned above by SeaTexan, can be more problematic if you're trying to insert them.

     

    The photo album feature is (sadly) clunky and rather antiquated by modern website standards, but - most of the time - it works pretty well.

     

    Two more things to consider:

    • you might want to try opening this site in a different browser (Explorer or Google or Firefox) - sometimes, in the past, when the site has been acting up, Explorer has outperformed Google, etc.
    • safe to assume your have plenty of bandwidth?  I've often found that my biggest problems loading pictures are related to upload speed, not the web site.

     

    KEEP TRYING - some folks have posted some great photos in the past (and I hope they'll continue to do so)!!!!

      Hi ssindc:   I am trying to upload to a photo album.   I'm using google chrome.  Oh yes I have plenty of bandwidth, as I said I don't have problems with uploading on blogs, twitter, facebook, etc.  I was able last night to upload but they keep coming up sideways, no matter if I rotate them or not before uploading to this site.  grrrrrrrrrr...   very frustrating.    Thanks for your help!

        that's strange since last time I uploaded a pic it kept being posted sideways even though it was correctly oriented on my desk top

    Most of my issue with photo uploads here are when I am attempting to copy a something and paste it into a post, at times it just won't work or it is the size of Texas!!

     

    Uploading photos from my confuser I cannot recall an issue other than it takes longer some days than others to load. Keep trying and when you get the album loaded put a link to it here so we can all find it easier.

      I promise you if I ever get them uploaded correctly I will fly a plane with the message "follow this link to great pics..."  

      I think I will try explorer as someone else suggested.   Perhaps it's windows 10, or google chrome...

          I know it hasn't been a problem for any other sites, but not sure of this one.   I just tell myself to breathe...
