Can't post photos

Postby Sarah Simon » Tue Jan 11, 2011 4:21 pm

The "can't post photos" issue is raising its head again. Don't know if it's just me / isolated or if the problem is more widely spread on the site. I managed to get a small handful of photos posted last night, but they were the exception, not the rule. For the most part, if I try to post a photo, after hitting "submit," the site "gets hung up" on the process...then reverts to a mostly blank screen and the photo never gets created. I have tried clearing my cache, etc. Any other solutions?

One more thing: I have tried posting photos from two different laptops with the same result. :(

don't know. sorry.


Actually, Fletch, you hit the nail on the head. I pulled the photos directly from a camera I was unfamiliar with. The default file size was HUGE.

WORKAROUND: I used the Picasa "export" command in the bottom photo tray, it shrunk the image file size considerably...and now I can post photos.

THANKS!

Yes, there's a limit on file size. I think it is 6 MB.

Also, it's possible for the upload process to time out if it takes too long to upload the photo. It's best to resize the photos to something reasonable before uploading them.

If you aren't trying to do it from a Best Western in Thailand somewhere, you should be good to go! :P
