    I've noticed quite a few posts with people complaining about their images not uploading when they are using our built in image uploader, yet when I look at their albums the images have in fact uploaded just fine.
    • One thing you need to remember is before you upload a pic, you must ensure that your cursor is flashing in the white text area of your post, the image uploader is directly connected to your cursor, so if your cursor is not flashing in the text area then the uploader does not know where to put the image and as a result it just bombs it into your album and doesn't put it into your post.
    This also means that wherever your cursor is flashing is where the pic will be placed, you must wait for the pic to be uploaded before clicking anywhere else.

    Hope that clears things up a bit, if you need help, let me know.

    :)

    I keep getting a message "file is not an image" when I try to upload a picture. Why?

    What are you saving the file as. JPG, GIF etc. Remember the size limits.

    If only the 225kb could have been bigger, the maximum size could have stayed at 800.as it fills the screen without having to move the scroll bar. It is the 225kb that buggers the quality/clarity around

    I would love to give up more but unfortunately we only have 18gigs of space on our server, of which 6gigs is taken up by the server and forum software, we've already got 2.4gigs of pics uploaded so space is relatively limited. Did you read the thread on how to resize pics? Look at this pic that I have resized down to 165kb, looks great to me.

    Why don't you allow the JP2 files, they are smaller than the normal JPG.

    This 1 is 217kb on JP2 but 257kb as a normal JPG.

    It is fine, just save the pic's with no camera info and they are smaller.

    Perhaps I'm dof, but I don't see a delete function on the picture viewer "Open" function - I would like to delete some old pics which I uploaded a long time ago. Either that, or, if you need more space, could one not (preferably automated ???) resize all photos older than (say) 6 months to something like 300x200 - they will then still be visible in the old threads, but not take up much space...
