    Unhappy Can't upload anymore

    I have been trying for 2 weeks now to upload. I do it as I have always done. take the pic on my phone e-mail it to my e-mail. save as jpeg to my desk top then upload to the quiltboard site. but it won't take my pic anymore. they are not oversized either.
    I go to home
    click on pictures
    click on New Thread
    put in name of pic
    attach from my computer not url
    select pic from desk top (as I have always done)
    click upload

    BUT it will not up load.
    thx for anyhelp.

    i'm not certain why it changed all of a sudden. back near the changeover, patricej determined that the best size for uploading is 480x640, or thereabouts. so i always resize my pictures with the lower dimension to 480. i've not had any problems. i hope you can get it worked out.

    oh, by the way, you do have to be logged in to start a thread [just in case that's the issue]

    i experienced something odd when uploading photos this morning.
    they appeared to not upload.
    i didn't get any upload error messages, but the comment area was empty and i didn't see them on the attachment list.
    after i posted (using both quick reply and go advanced) the pictures did appear.

    why did i bother to click the post button when it looked as though they hadn't uploaded?
    (who knows. just stubborn or excessively curious i guess.)

    i discovered that this happens only in FireFox.
    i experimented with Google Chrome and Safari.
    everything worked as usual in those browsers.

    i didn't test MS IExp.

    i will have to ask tech support if they have any ideas.
    if they don't, i will have to see whether or not the FireFox folks have a guess or two or three to throw at me.

    I also have an eddres you can use if you need to contact me with questions or suggestions that relate to our community: patricej@quiltingboard.com

    I've been having problems with pictures lately also, but like you, Patrice, I kept trying and eventually figured out that sometimes the pic's would show up in my list of attachments even though I had tried to used the picture icon when editing a post to imbed them in the post. I'm using Firefox on a Mac when this happens. Since I figured out what was happening, I've been just using the attachment option instead of trying to imbed them in the posts and it seems to be working better. I also got some weird errors on a gif file, that was sized and saved correctly I believe. When I tried to attach it I got an error that said it wasn't a gif file. (Photoshop certainly thought it was...). There seems to be something kind of weird going on for sure.
