I'm not all that computer savvy, so when in doubt, first thing I do is clear all the website internet stuff on my computer- delete all the cookies/history/browser caches etc. and start with a fresh reopening of whatever I'm using like Explorer/Chrome/Firefox/whatever.

You've saved the pictures to your computer, and are trying to upload them to here? Positive you are not trying to upload them directly from another site without saving them first?

If you have saved them and renamed them, did you save them with the complete file extension, not missing a "." before jpg/jpeg/gif/etc.?

Are you maybe hitting the insert video button instead of insert image?

What sizes are the pictures? Are they humongous and possibly not able to fit in the allowed pixels/dimensions?


I'll move this into the Test forum down the page a bit.


Choose a known good and available picture on your computer, and try again. Let us know what happens, or what your screen says if it doesn't work.

Look out for "Basic Uploader" on the extreme bottom right of the dialogue box. I occasionally miss that , (age etc etc) . Always love your pics John, get on with it !

Check the file size too, there's a limit I believe. Even pics straight from newer phones are now so large that they're too big for most forums/web use etc. If it's an 8 megapixel or larger picture, it's too big and you should resize it. I normally resize to 800x600 (or 600x800 for portrait) and you'll notice the file size drops to <200KB rather than 5MB+.

And here is a great program/utility to resize those pictures if you are using Windows.
