Default Is anyone else having trouble uploading a picture?

When I choose "choose picture," nothing happens. Anyone else having this problem?

I uploaded a picture this morning alright. You may want to check the size of your picture. If it is to large it won't upload.

A couple of people have mentioned some recent issues. I posted a picture yesterday with no problems, but I have a few things I have to do anyway.

I've never been able to get the paperclip icon to work -- I think that is due to various virus protections I have and that I could get around it if I wanted to... but I use the Go Advanced and Manage Attachment options.

Smart phones will usually have "sharing" options that reduce file sizes, but I have an old school digital camera that I use and the pictures are almost always too large for me to post here. I consider myself reasonably computer savvy but it took me months of trial and error to figure out the combination of issues between software, hardware, and user before I could post reliably. Biggest key for me is that file size, before I post here I use the defaults on this simple and easy site that doesn't set off my virus scanner:
https://www.reduceimages.com/

lol and here it is long after the board changes and I'm still about 50/50 if I remember to stretch out the screen to get to the upload button.

Thanks, Iceblossom. I'll try Go Advanced. I always reduce my photos before I try to post. This is strange, because when I go to Choose Photo, the desktop screen doesn't pop up to allow me to make a choice.

Are you using the "picture" icon or the Paper Clip icon?

I had the same thing this morning, so I posted, and then went in and edited and it brought up the paper clip and when I clicked it, up came the box to select my photo and then download.
