Default Cant up-load pics

This has been going on - off and on - for at least a few weeks now. When I try to up-load pics to a post it either times out and never up-loads or I get a message about a missing security token.

help!

Ok, the solution seems to be pre-shrinking the pics. It seems the wattflyer auto-resizer isnt working for some reason due to new servers or something.

The up-load window gives max files sizes for the various formats - .jpg, .png etc. Stay under those and you should be fine.

I've been using "faststone" image freeware image viewer now for more than a few years. That's right, it's free. Image manipulation, cropping, rotating, photo color adjustment, contrast, image shrinking are but a few of its capabilities.

And again, its FREE.

Check it out. You want the "Faststone Image Viewer 4.5. To use it, just open a photo, move the mouse cursor to the top, left, right, or bottom for the options.

It's been my experience that reducing the photos to 1200 by 900 pixels across, with the "Christmas Tree" icon in the menu command located on the bottom of the PC screen across works well in wattflyer.

Does that program do batch processing? What I liked about my old program was that I could download a bunch of pics from my camera into a folder, highlight all the pics and shrink them all at one go. It was fast and handy for up-loading build pics or sending pics to friends.

I'll try this one and see how it works.
