Default unable to upload pics

Made several attempts tonight to upload some pics, all with no luck. The first time I got a pop up from Wattflyer alerting me that pics didn't upload, and something about my token not being accepted. Never saw that before.

Shut down and rebooted, tried again, this time just a message in the attach/manage document section saying "upload failed".

Is this a system wide issue, or just with me? All pics were .jpg format.

Thanks for your review and suggestions.

How many pics are you trying to upload? I've had that issue. Best option is sign up on photo bucket, and link your pics to photo bucket here

first set was 8, then I had another post where I tried to link one. I wouldn't expect 1 to crash the grid.

That's odd, usually one should be fine. Try photobucket.

Thanks for your review and suggestions.
What was the size of your photographs. Wattflyer does not always like large file sizes in your photos. I've reduced the file size and never had a problem. The freeware program I use is http://www.faststone.org/, and their image viewer 5.1. This is a quite powerful program that does a lot more than just change file sizes.

FYI, I do the "Resize/Resample" command to Width = 1600, and the photo always loads into wattflyer.

Generally upload fail = too large of a file. For my camera I have to reduce the files to 30% of the default JPG size. I just load the pic into Paint or some other basic editing program, select all, shrink/grow 30% and then crop (because it shrinks the image but doesn't chop off the suddenly blank border)

I use imageshack but others like Dropbox or photobucket work as well.

Makes you copy and paste the URL by first
Deleting the https: starter in the image dialog box

That Faststone software is very easy to use on existing digital photos.
