Hello.

I've just attempted my first post, to Diptera (adults), which went well until I tried to attach my photo. As far as I can tell, it falls within the parameters of width, resolution, file type, etc. The file name is a string of numbers and letters with no spaces, and the extension is .jpg. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Colin, and a Happy New Year!

The only suggestions I can think of are no capitals, and I don't think numbers are allowed either. Keep to a maximum of 600 pixels width. Hope this helps!

Hello Janet. Happy New Year to you.

I removed all numbers from the file name and confirmed the width at 480 pixels, but that photo will not load. I will try attaching it here as an experiment.

The standard rules are:
* no spaces in the file name or unnecessary punctuation (besides - or ending in .jpg)
* <190KB in size
* <=640 pixels in either dimension (though this last part won't stop you uploading - it is just courtesy)

Thanks Chris.

I've checked and rechecked the file's attributes:

480 p wide
640 p tall
72 dpi
size 117.1 KB
name: dpifly.jpg

I Browse for it and then Open it so it appears in the Attachment box. It all seems quite normal as far as I can tell. I wonder what's missing.

Last resort...do you preview after putting in the pic from the browse button? I found the pic disappears if i do that, so add it on the preview or don't preview. You can edit your post to add the pic, try that but don't preview.

The first time in the other forum I did try to preview with the photo. I also tried replying and attaching the image to the reply. Also tried attaching it via Editing the initial post.

I don't think I previewed when I tried to attach the photo earlier in this thread. I will try to attach it to this post and then go straight to Post Reply.

I don't think it worked. Have we exhausted the possibilities?

I think we need Paul to check whether he can see what's going on. Occasionally (very rarely) the uploader objects to the JPG format in the file and has rejected photos. The way around this seems to be to recreate the file in PhotoShop or similar software with a slightly different size and just try to upload again Smile

Another nonPhotoshop jpg save. This definitely removed the offending JFIF from the header.
