I know it doesn't take then minutes to upload a photo. This is the first time and the first place where I havn't been able to successfully upload a photo.

I have a plant which is going brown from the bottom up. Fortunately it still has some green. I hope somehow I can get a photo loaded so perhaps someone has suggestions of what I can do to help this plant.

Hi dogpack, I don't know how large your file is but maybe you could downsize it before uploading? If it is not a large file I don't know what to tell you, sorry.

Maridell is right. The images that come off most camera are massive. If you resize it down to something like 800 pixels wide before uploading, it should come right on up with no problems.

If you are on dial-up it can take 10 or more minutes to load the photo. Sad Must be very patient. Hilarious!

I'll try again and see what happens. I've never had this kind of trouble no matter the size of the photos. I've read the entire tips and tricks collumn and no photo. It's a mystery!
