I am new on this site and I’m having trouble uploading pictures for projects. After selecting the picture and clicking “upload picture” it looks like its trying to upload for about a minute or two then I get a screen that says “this website cannot be displayed. At first I was getting a different error, I THINK it said, “you must select a picture that is on your computer to upload” or something close to that.

I’m sure this is a user error but I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Any ideas? Or is there a troubleshooting page I can go to?

Never had a problem like that, I assume the problem is on your end with your browser or your IPS. I upload some pictures tonight and they uploaded OK.

Sorry can’t be any help.

I’m sure it’s something on my side also… I tried using smaller sized pictures and that didn’t help.

It was my firewall setting after all. Thanks for the suggestions English.

It makes me upload my pics through Photobucket…don’t know why…and someone recently told me that they resize their pics to 700 pixels (or something like that…) because my larger pics were only showing part of the images that I intended to show…so I guess I have to scale them down a bit for this site…
