    @lovetotravel77
    Two suggestions:

    Check the pixel size of your photo to make sure you are not exceeding the max width and height as seen below AND make sure the file you want to load is of one of the file types noted below. Most software and / or websites will allow you to specify the max pixel width and height while exporting photos.

    Thank you, when I get some free moments I will try again. Does TUG have any restrictions on number of posts or anything like that BEFORE you can post a photo?:shrug: Thanks again! I tried again, jpg, resized it to 800 by 600. Strange, when I select upload file, still fails.

    TUG might indeed have some restriction as you mention - let's copy Brian and Doug to verify that question @TUGBrian @Makai Guy

    In the meantime, another way to check this out would be to try and upload the same file that I am going to upload here.
    In my daytime job, my students are currently working on a state project and we have visited the official website of each of the 50 United States.
    Let's use the state of Wyoming for this example. Their official state website is http://www.wyo.gov
    Under the About Wyoming header, there is a Facts and Symbols tab. Click that (or, here is the direct link: http://www.wyo.gov/about-wyoming/wyoming-facts-and-symbols )
    Try downloading the Wyoming State Flag. (To download this image, point your mouse on top of the image, then right mouse click. One of the options you should then see will be Save Image (I am assuming you are a Windows user....). Save the image to your desktop (for easy later location and cleanup after you attempt to upload).
    Then come back here and in a reply to this thread, see if you can upload that photo. It should look like this:

    flag.jpg

    Here is some more info on that file and a screen shot of where to find it - and yes, I am a Mac user!

    ss 1.jpeg

    ss 3.jpeg

    At any rate, if you can upload a small file like this - one we know that works - then that would suggest something about the upload you are attempting still is not within TUG's allowable parameters.

    Good luck on this!

    the forum will resize your photo to be displayed on your post...so the pixel size/width wont matter.

    there is a size limitation for uploads, but if i recall its something very large like 5mb (and if your photo is bigger than that, you just need to shrink it as thats really...REALLY large for a photo)

    The maximum file size accepted is shown on the upload dialog, as shown on bbodb1's attachment, back a few posts:
    View attachment 10554
    We're currently set to accept up to a ridiculously large number, 50,000 KB. At 1024 KB/MB, that comes to 48.8 MB as shown.

    Thank you, you have provided very specific instructions. Even with uploading "the Wyoming Flag", which the dimensions are 199 by 127, JPG File Size, 10.9 KB, the same error message keeps coming up, "there was a problem uploading your file". Additionally, I resized other photos, 800 by 600 JPG, and all of them when uploading a file(at the bottom of this reply(first one says post reply, then upload a file, then more options, I am clicking on upload a file) still give me the same message, "there was a problem uploading your file", UUGH!:eek:

    Try uploading now. I've turned off the "flash uploader" which calls your operating system's file choosing routine. This has been reported to fix similar problems on other Xenforo (our bbs software) installations. I've done a couple of test uploads and this seems to work okay. The downside is that one cannot select multiple files to upload together, but must repeat the operation for each file.

    Nope. But since I've never seen the problem myself, I'd have to hear from lovetotravel77 who WAS having the problem.

    But perhaps more importantly, I haven't heard from anyone having new problems since we made the change.
