I have tried well over 3 hours tonight to upload 4 pics and the basic uploader just loads one but the arrows keep on turning. It says uploaded but nothing show. So I tried the other way and same thing, arrows keep rotating and nothing uploads. Anyone have a clue why this is happening?

What is the file extension (.jpg, .gif, etc.) of the image you're trying to upload?

Also, what is the image size? If it's too large of a file, the arrow will keep rotating forever and the file will never upload, so double check the file/image size.

You'll find that you'll have trouble posting at times also. A Firefox browser will help some,but still has problems with this site.

the largest size is only 2.16 mg, smallest 870 bytes. I do have Mozilla Firefox so I'll try again. Nope still won't upload. just arrows twirling around and around.

Is anyone else having a rough time uploading pics?

Are you using the advanced uploader? You have to have Flash 9 installed for it to work. Try the "basic uploader" and see if that works. And I don't think you can upload a text file.

And full name in your signature line is the forum rule. I assume there's more to it than "Jim."

Thanks Skip. Do I know you? I lived in Ktown and worked out at Cinetel Productions as a Lighting Director and also entered a lot of contests in Ktown.
