Still not working for me.
Photos are in a file on my desktop. I'm not trying to post directly from my phone (Android).

Hello there,

Can you upload the avatar you want to upload here?
I'll give this a test on my end.

Re: Trouble Posting Pictures


I tried loading pics from my laptop taken with Android phone, same thing as pics from iphone loaded onto laptop, error message. Something here is screwed up cause I've downloaded pics on here for years doing it the same way that now no longer works.

Re: Trouble Posting Pictures


Is that your dog?

Here's a test to see if picture post using Chrome which is not my usual browser.

"Upload of the file failed". Same thing with the other two browsers on this laptop.

Re: Trouble Posting Pictures


If this site's download capabilities don't work for downloading and displaying images directly from your hdd, you can do it the old way. It takes a little more time.

Prodedure:
Copy or save your image to your directory on your hdd. Navigate to postimage.org site with your browser. Click "post an image" and direct postimage.org to your directory containing your "saved" image file.

Next.. PostImage.org will show you a list of ways to present your image. I always choose the second choice down from the top ("Save as direct link"). I then go back to this forum, click on the "Insert Image" from the above toolbar here, and copy in my link created by Postimage.org.

Sounds like a lengthy process, but actually takes no time at all.

It IS rather cooler to have a forum where you don't have to do the above. This one is on the fritz with regards to that? I didn't notice.

I wasn't doing an avatar, just a random picture post.
I did get it to go once I shrank it to 1/3 of its original size.
According to the site its original size should have worked.

According to the site its original size should have worked.
I have:
iPhone 6s Plus, the resolution of photo taken from the back camera is 4032x3024 , and from front camera is 2576x1932

That alone will swamp CT. The new iphone models have much larger image formats.



So something like you have to stay under 1.5 meg and 2448x1836.

I am not having an issue.

Downloaded this pic from my google photos, resized it to large, up loaded it here all in about 1 minute.

I'm on a laptop PC running win7.
