Anyone else having problems uploading your image? I can't get it to choose my file even though I see it and click (all my pics in the folder are greyed out). Its not file size...can't get to that point.

First suggestion would be to make it proper file size on your computer through your photo editor... maybe its too large for the site to do it for you... there are many free editors --infanview/picasa if you don't have access to Photoshop

WC stopped recognizing any of my .jpg files. I had to changes my files to .gifs. Try doing that. ( I'm on a MAC.) If you still have problems, go to the Report All Bugs (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1020732) thread and maybe Yorky can help you out.

Thank you both! I already had it reduced in size so I will try your suggestion next Lisilk.

Interesting. The problem and solution was simple in the end. Used a jpeg. I switched to Safari on advice from a fellow Mac user a few days ago instead of using my usual-Firefox. Safari wouldn't allow any uploading and Firefox did first try. Hm. Good to know. I love simple fixes!!

glad you succeeded... the uploader by default recognizes GIF.. change that to all files... and you will see you image!!

You are not the first (nor the last I suspect) to suffer this problem!

It does seem to be with Macs that it happens (they're the ones reported anyway!)

The other thing you can try, as in Carol's screencap above, is to use 'All Files' in the File of type box.

I am also using a Mac and I have to change my .jpg files to jpeg. Wouldn't think that would matter.........
