Hi Jas,

How long do you mean by 'forever'? You have to give it longer than a normal form to submit because it has to upload the file and make a thumbnail out of it. Also, be sure to stick to the file limititations (JPG, 50Kb max). If you're doing all this and it is still not working, can you describe the exact step you are taking?

Cheers, Peter

I haven't had any problem uploading pix to TP. Just have to reduce the pix first

Also, as you are uploading, this is often slower than downloading...

what kind of speed internet connection are you on?

Mmmm. Could be that your original file is in a format like .bmp (Bitmap) which is absolutely gigantic in terms of file size (even for a small picture) and would explain such a very long upload attempt. For web use, try and save your photographic pictures as .jpg/.jpeg, or .png. If your picture is "already" one of those formats,then you may need to further reduce the picture size. To do this without losing quality, download the Freeware download "Easy Thumbnails". 100% free. I use it all the time for web images that i need to reduce in size and file size. It can reduce even 6 million pixel size Digi pics into excellent quality thumbnails, and resaving them in a tiny size compared to the original.
