    Trouble posting pics today?

    I keep getting the "picture file failed", when I try to post a picture. Anyone else having trouble today?

    Obviously this is not effecting me.

    I have had that happen in the past though, for no reason I can understand.

    Other than it being sideways, nope, no problems here.

    Hmmm.....maybe I'll try again soon. It just might have been a computer hiccup.
    Thanks.

    Hmmm......still won't take my pics. I click on "image" and select the pics and then "basic uploader", and then the sign comes up saying it failed. Any suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong? Might I have something for this forum turned off?

    It may have to do with the size of the upload, especially if you're trying to upload multiple pics at one time. Try uploading just one or two at a time.

    I've been playing around with this issue because I was pretty sure it was a file size issue. The random photos above are all below 2 megabytes in size. Additional photos larger than 2 megabytes failed to load.

    I'm looking around now in the backend to see if I can increase the file size. There are a couple of settings which should have done the job, but after changing the settings to 4mb, nothing has changed.

    For the time being, try making a copy of any images over 2mb and attempt to make them smaller.

    Thanks Alan. I'll give that a try. I've never had trouble before with file size, but maybe the images I'm doing this time are more complicated. I've tried doing one at a time and that doesn't work. Not sure how to make them smaller, but I'll play around with it.
    Thanks!

    Actually Alan, I think you're right. All the pics I was trying to post are over 3 MBs. The ones in the past were much less. So I'll try to shrink them.
