A Service Dog gives a person with a disability independence. Never approach, distract or pet a working dog, especially when (s)he is in harness. Never be afraid to ask questions to the handler (parent).

I've tried 3 times today and with 2 different browsers to make a post in the "can you identify" topic. Each time I get through to the upload, it comes up to a blank screen and that's the end of my access.

Is it me or is there a glitch (other than the current glitch between my computer and my brain!)

Hi Kelly,
What is the last thing that you do before you get the blank screen?

Regards ... Tim.

@tim

Are there size restrictions on uploaded pictures? There is no mention of restrictions in the "Upload images" help page.

Could too large a pic file size be causing the problem?

Seems to me that there is size restrictions for uploading images. I had problems with this last week as I tried to upload an image I hadn't resized.

350,000 bites (350kb) is the limit. Anything larger returns an error message, but not a blank screen.

Bob, you are correct on the 350kb size limit. It shouldn't cause a blank screen though. Kelly, Could you please email me the file that you are trying to upload? Send it to auldstampguy at gmail dot com.

Regards ... Tim.

I'll resize mine - I hadn't thought about that issue but makes sense now that my brain is working a bit more :-)

Hopefully I'll get it up now.

Thanks Roy and Tim.

Kelly

** Yup, it must have been the jpg size - I got it to work this time! **

I am using a small free program for resizing images called Image Converter or FreeImage. It's available at http://www.freeimageconverter.com/. It does batch converting. I used it for the images I posted on some covers with NYC railroad perfins. Try that if you are having a size limitation problem.

re: Uploading Pics to a Thread

Hi All
I am having a problem trying to upload some photo's ,The first time I tried I got the message that it was to large about 600kbs .so I took it down to 300 hit the upload button .it thought about it for a while and then put it in the thread without the photo or having to hit the submit button.
I reduced it down to 142Kbs and the same thing happened ,only they appear at the bottom of the test page and have nothing in them at all.
I 've just tried a 11Kb scan and it loaded no problem.
Is it me,how small do you have to go to be able to upload ?

Tim states above that 350kb is the maximum size. I guess Tim will have to answer the rest of your question.
