Impossible to select, let alone upload, photos

Travel Forums System Talk Impossible to select, let alone upload, photos

Hi,

Just wanted to upload photos but there is no option whatsoever. It just gives a blank page where the photo selection should be.

A few weeks ago I was able but just after installing JAVA on my computer (for the bulk uploader). Now there is nothing and not even a link to the single photo uploader.

Tried Firefox en IE, both recent versions, nothing there. Really odd.

Hope I can get some help.

Cheers
Mike

I wonder if this is maybe just a case of unclear UI. There's a new uploader, and the big grey field can throw you off, but you basically just click the green "select files" button, and get a regular file picker from your browser. (Which allows picking multiple files.)

Thanks, I will try that one. I checked it before but you have to select them one by one by clicking the button over and over again instead of just ticking them in a box. I don't want to upload all my pics.

If you want to upload a range of photos, click the first, shift-click the last - should select the entire range. ctrl-click on individual photos to add them to a selection, or to remove them from a selection. (I think at least that's consistent between windows and linux.)

Did you get it to work? Selecting multiple files should definitely work if you managed to get into the file selection screen.

I was hoping they grey button was clear, but maybe I should instead not show it at all until after the files are selected.

Yep, it did work, thanks guys.
And ashamed to say: I did know about shift to select ALL photos, but didn't know the cntrl and then click to select separate photos and then upload them. Wasted almost 37 years lol...:)

Not sure what you mean by the grey button, but there are green buttons that are clear. It is the big grey area which was confusing for me as there used to be the bulk uploader or at least a link to the single file uploader.

Blank screens are always confusing to me so I think that your suggestion would be clearer. Just have the green buttons.

I may be imagining it but the uploader is very slow compared to the old version. Are the loaded files bigger than before?
