    I tried to upload a photo but got this not very informative error
    The following error occurred
    There was a problem uploading your file.

    I think some pictures have too many pixels. Can you try with another pic?

    On a post there's a green box "upload a file". Click on that. It brings you to your computer files. Click on the picture and click "okay" It should upload . Like CQ said, sometimes companies play with the speed, sometimes computers make an error, or the file is too big, or it's not jpg.

    What is the upload limit in file size and or image size? The forum I moderate has a setting for how large a file can be uploaded.

    I'm not sure. I don't think I've had a problem with normal pictures.

    What is a "normal" picture?

    average size picture, like when you take pictures and download them into your file on the computer.

    When I take a photo on my phone (and no it's not an eye phone) it's 1920 x 1080 pixels I usually resize them to 1200 x 675 pixels. Different devices take different size (pixels) photos. My camera is 4608 x 3456 pixels. I've uploaded an example of all three as a test to see if the forum has a limit on upload size.

    My guess is it was an connection issue or something else because as you can see I've uploaded several photos and the forum software has resized them all to 800 x 600 pixels.

    I like the fact that the forum software resizes them. Less work for me.

    Getting hot here, 90's during the day. They say we got 2-3 days of spring but I missed it.

    J, it was the first miserable-to-me day. Standing still my eyeballs were sweating with the high humidity. Everyone got fresh water.
    It's been 90-ish during the days. I don't let it bother me.
