Problems uploading images.
« on: July 29, 2011, 12:58:35 PM »
I'm sure its me, but is anyone experiencing problems uploading pics to the site? I have been successfully using Safari to upload images. Now I can't. When trying, I write a little text about the image, select the attachment and then hit post. The image is 1.3mb and should, by my math, fit within the 4096kb attachment size limit. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I've experienced this, too, but don't have a solution to offer...

As a test I uploaded images to Facebook via Aperture and by using Facebook's uploader, I had no problems. I also tried to upload an image to this Forum with no luck. I have read that Apple's new OS, Lion, has a few bugs with uploading pics but none of the problems I read about were in the "I can't upload an image" category. My feeling is that the problem is with CR. I'm going to try one more avenue before I lay the blame solely on CR.

Okay, tried to upload the image via another computer running the older Apple OS snow leopard. No luck. I feel that I can lay the problem onto CR. Hopefully the issue will be fixed soon.

This forum does not have image storage capacity, you cannot upload images to it.

The images you see are hotlinked from a website like flickr, smugmug, or one of several other good ones.  Some forums like Fred Miranda do have upload capability and charge for it.  DPR is owned by amazon.com, and lets users upload a limited number of images.  I believe they get space on the amazon S3 Servers and pay for it by advertising.

Are you speaking of the particular forum I'm trying to post to? I.E. the Landscape section? Or are you speaking of the entire CR site. I will say that I have posted directly from my computer to the CR site in the past.

You can upload images to this forum by using the "Attachments and other options" while composing a message, and then attach an image. A test image follows attached (so it seems to work for me, at least: Snow leopard).

The attachments capability is not intended to become a photo upload server.  you can upload 4 attachments or a maximum of 4mb of files, be they text or images.  Images display @ 320 X 320, so its a back door way to quickly show a image or two, but linking from your server is better.

If a large number of images were uploaded, the feature might be shutoff or curtailed.

I see the attachment feature as a convenience to attach small files, including images, for those who do not have an image server to link to. I think this is the feature the OP had problems with using. From what I understand, this is the intended usage of the "attachment" feature. I have seen nothing to suggest this to be a "back door" use. Why would you think that? I think a user would have to be pretty persistent in order to abuse this feature, considering the 4 attachments/post limit and the limited upload speed.

Its not a photo gallery, and does not function like one, just a simple way to add a few small photos, text documents, etc.  Stuff you want to appear in a footer below your post.

The size limitations make it difficult to view. 

You can argue over terms all day long, I call it a back door because its not the normal way people show their images. 

You can currently attach the following:

doc,gif,jpg,mpg,pdf,png,txt,zip files.

I can say this, I have been posting images to the CR site for some time and now suddenly I can't. I click on the attachments and other options link, choose the file I want and click "post". The next thing I get is an all white window and thats it. No upload, no return to another page. Nothing. I have no trouble posting images to other sites. I'm not sure what the problem is.

Your customer service department recommends a REBOOT!   ;)
