for some reason mine are not uploading all the way. any suggestions? Im uploading from a work PC so any crappy PC comments wont hurt my feelings. but they might make me laugh so make them funny.

i think the image has to be hosted elsewhere so you can link to it using the image button.

i thought that at first but it doesnt ask for a URL. when promted for the photo it aloows you to browse directly from your PC. nothing is said about a URL. so i dont think thats it. but ill try it out.

If you want a decent sized, viewable pic (that is to say, larger than an avatar) it'll need to be hosted somewhere.

Put another way I wouldn't bother with the "attachments" feature here; all it has room for is a thumbnail.

yes, I am trying to use the upload a picture form on the site and it says 100% but then it says connecting but never does and I don't get any confirmation that the picture has been received. I see all the other pics that people have sent..but none of mine. I wish someone who has done it successfully would jump in and give us a clue~! THANKS!

here is what you got to do....

open up your picture in microsoft office picture manager, if you have it. if you dont find another way to compress it. if you do click on picture on the top left between view and tools then go all the way to the bottom and click compress picture. on the right it says compress for: and click the circle for web. then save it. when you want to reply it doesnt work in quick reply so go to post reply at the bottom then click on the attachment thing in the first row. upload the file you saved. it should be small enough. now it has a small thumbnail but if you click it it is bigger. thats what i did in this thread...

I'm not trying to post pictures here. I am trying to post pictures to the fan's picture's page and I assumed that was what this thread was about. But thanks for the tips regarding adding a picture to a post! (I think I might have gotten some of my pics to load on the fan page, I'm just waiting to see if they show up or not.)

Cheers!

Ill_eagle....that was funny. dastinkytwinz. im totally with you. i understand to post on internet sites and forums and such, you use image shack. i think we both understand that. when asked for a URL for a picture, you use image shack. to upload a fan photo, you are not asked for a URL. when you browse, it takes you to your PC. i have tried to shrink the picture, i croped it, and things like that. one of the problems is how small do you have to make it? it doesnt say anything about shrinking the picture. but again, i tried that anyway. i have the same problem stinkytwin haz.<--lol. it says its uploading but never finishes. thats what we need help with understanding.

what browser are you using? what version? are you mac or Pc?

there are 1000's of pictures uploaded so it seems a lot of people are not having any problems.

ok this is what they told me "We tested IE 7 in Vista and had no issues either, the progress bar completes, and the upload reached the CMS"

So can you please describe in detail what happens when you try to upload a picture. So I can tell them. Thanks. :)

I'm sorry to add to it, PF, but I am having the same problem. I fill in the information, put the photo in and the upload box comes up, but the progress bar never moves.
I'm in explorer, too. (But not Vista.)
Thank you.
