Can't upload

Hi guys

Sorry to bring this up and I know it was covered a short time ago but can I find it? Can I 'eck.
I could have sworn I copied the thread, or at least bookmarked it, but can I find it? Can I 'eck.

I started my first Album here on e-group and put 3 pictures in it. But only one picture got there and I just can't get any more to load. All I get is an 'Error uploading' message.

If someone could point me to that thread, I know someone (possibly PDK42 Paul ) gave good instructions on how to make it work.

Thanks a lot

Keith

Re: Can't upload

Just tried it, first Album.

No problem here, all photos less than the 500kb size limit...…...

Seems a little odd that I can't see a way of taking photos from my gallery, and have to upload them again. I might not be up to speed on that though..:-)

Try this http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...upload+gallery

It would seem Ross fiddles with more than just fiddles.

Re: Can't upload

I've always found the gallery on this site to be somewhat user-vicious which is why I seldom post any pics. Maybe if I used it more I'd get used to it, I dunno. The Gallery Home Page is in my view rather messy and confusing and has too much information. Recently I've attached a couple of pics to posts which is much easier, at least it was once I'd found the Upload button. The attach dialogue opens in a small window that hides it under the right hand margin!

Re: Can't upload

Ive found myself posting less pictures on here (I was never prolific though) largely due to the process flow of getting them on - resize making sure kb limit not exceeded, upload to gallery, then finally link to post. Seems a bit of a faff.

Re: Can't upload

I prefer to store my pictures for online use on my own webspace - then I can refer to them from any source be it a forum, email etc.

Re: Can't upload

Can you link directly from the likes of Flickr to here? And if so, does the kb limit still apply?

Thanks

Re: Can't upload

Thanks everyone for your help and thoughts so far.

I converted one of my recent pictures to 1200 (long side) and it came in at 516kb and the maximum is 512kb so that's no good. Even then, I noticed slight deterioration so I wouldn't want to go any lower because the pics would look really bad.

I think I'll just keep posting from Flickr and any pics I want to show here but not on Flickr can go on Flickr as a private picture and be re-dated so it goes at the back of my photostream.

Thanks again

Keith

Edit to say thanks Chris, you posted whilst I was typing. Yes you can post from Flickr using the BBcode.

Re: Can't upload

I use this as my host :

https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/

I post single frames at 1024 pixels wide and stereo pairs at 1200.

By linking to there from here, via image addresses, images are shown here as they would be viewed at the host site.

I do have to pay a modest fee but that gives me access to sell equipment or images there.

Thanks Harold.

I've heard of fredmiranda but always thought it was totally American and just for selling/buying. I'll have a look.

It's free to look and comment (after free registration) but to upload images (if not hosted elsewhere) you have to pay an annual fee. The other priviledges come with the one payment.

Of course, most of the items for sale are also in the USA, requiring eye-watering postage for anything but the smallest.

Membership is worldwide but predominently USA.
