    i just tried to upload photos, in two new threads i was going post, and in another thread. and each time it said it failed.

    2 of the photos were jpeg, under the size limit.

    dunno why it's not working for me.

    another member was having problems and i remember him asking questions, wonder if it's related.

    Did you post to some place like Photobucket and insert the URL here using the little mountain and sun icon button?

    Let me try.

    seems to work for me...
    Is there a limit to how many you can upload like this?

    You are not barred from uploading.

    When you say the size is below the limit, are you referring to the size in KB or MB, or are you referring to the size in pixels?

    i was referring to the size in MB. the size limit was 3 MB and the pic was like, 2.60 or so

    i checked the size by scrollin my mouse over the pic and it says 4000x3000 both for the pic i want to upload and to a pic i have previously uploaded. the previously uploaded pic is slightly larger MBs then the one i want to upload, both were taken on the same camera. same settings, same computer, some software

    i just tried to upload the picture that i have uploaded before... and it wouldnt upload either. the message just says upload failed.

    I'm going to have to dig into this a little more, but I think the problem occurred after we moved to our new web host. Some of the settings here are probably different than at the old host, and I will have to track down the specific settings.

    Even though your file size is under the 3MB limit, it is over the pixel size limit. I think you are running into a limit of some kind when the forum software tries to resize the file. I have the same problem when trying to upload a 2.6MB file, but not with smaller files.

    Until we figure out the problem, try manually resizing your images to a smaller size.

    i tried to upload a pic that was in the KB size range, it worked.

    i wouldn't mind resizing... but i dont know how to do that. i dont have picture editing software

    You should have received image editing software with your camera. And there are several that can be downloaded that are free or nearly so.

    You can also change the settings on your camera so that the pictures you take result in smaller image files.

    here is how it works open your pic in irfanveiw

    then go across to image

    then scroll down to resize resample and select what you think works (1200 is a good size here)

    choose your size

    then hit ok


    ( dont for get to save , or save as , otherwise your chances wont be saved)

    if you save as and use a different name the original pic wont be cahnged at all as your only saving the new file name ( or creating it in that name wityh your changes )

    cheers
