    after selecting below the "Upload a File" it opens a small window with 2 options 1)browse or 2)close (do not close)

    Select browse grab photo in your desktop wherever stored and then only select "open" and it auto uploads pic with parameters.

    You then select the size, such as "Thumbnail" or "Full Image", and click "Post Reply". Wait for it to upload. Done.

    Thank you Russell, I didn't have a screen capture software on this office computer when trying to help out here-the old saying pictures worth a thousand words :)

    Team,
    I am trying (unsuccessfully) to upload a few images to Rail Images. As you know, I have quite a lot of photos uploaded, so I know the process.
    The image never uploads, and I haven't changed how I upload them. The system just won't accept them, and won't tell me why. It doesn't matter if I rename the file.

    Any ideas?

    Only thing that springs to mind is possibly an issue with the file size?

    I know the site auto-formats the file size to the limits, but the original file size I just found out is enormous (14MB for one of them in particular). The photos whose file sizes were under 7MB seems to upload/resize just fine.

    It was the filesize. Once I resized, they went thru no problem. Thanks for the assist!

    Open the photo in an editing program and save at a higher compression JPEG format. It is the only thing I have found that works when they are large

    Also remember there is a limit to storage space available, for everyone. So the smaller your files, the more you can upload.

    I literally just this week just changed to some new software--it has resizing built in. My last software didn't and I had to take an extra step in MS Paint to resize. I am lazy like that...
