I don't have any images either - very strange, because I knew I had uploaded one of my jumper!

I have no idea what's wrong, maybe our tech wizard knows.

Are you talking about pictures uploaded before the forum revamp around new year's? Unfortunately Peter was unable to find a way to carry the old albums across so we need to start afresh. At least he was able to transport our posts to this modern version - that must have been quite a task since the forum type was so old.

Hi All,

You can find the original post about this right here:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15486

It wasn't an easy decision to make, but it was either that or the forum as a whole not working anymore.

The new Gallery luckily works fine - and we're on a modern version of the forum software now.

What is the easiest way to upload photo's now then please. I cannot upload into the gallery one I posted in a thread recently. It just says the file is too big.
Thanks, Maura

Images should not exceed 2MB in file size (which is enormous for an image!) - beyond that it will resize any image automatically.

If you're trying to directly upload images from a Tablet or Phone, it could be that the resolution is so high that the images are extremely large and the system will reject them.

There are many free online tools to resize images - you won't notice a difference in quality but they compress them to a more reasonable size.

Thanks Peter - I've made a note of those and will give it a go. :)
