Photo not uploading/visible Preview not working

Post by td99 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 9:27 pm

After upgrade I uploaded many photos, never a problem. Today it will upload but no preview available and photo not in final message.
Pressing preview button has no effect.

Are you getting the place inline button?

It hasn't finished uploading the picture then. Is your connection particularly slow or have you updated your browser or OS (what system are you using)?

Playing around with it this morning I found it was something specific to that photo. Other photos upload OK and show the place inline button.
Photo was made with phone and uploaded to dropbox. Photo cropped using std windows photo app and saved (my normal procedure). Looked at it with Photoshop - nothing unusual...Saved it again and it's ok.
Assume it was just a glitch in saving the photo :roll: :roll: :roll:

I've seen this also. I think there is a connection with the size of photos. Smaller photos (say 120kb) seem less likely to work for me than larger photos say 500 kb - what could be the explanation?

td99, I think it's the 'saving' that's the resolving the problem. Pics taken on my phone won't give the 'place inline' option.

If I save them in Picasa then 100% of the time they upload successfully. Doing the same in MS Paint (opening, then saving again) does not give the same reliable result.


SE6a needing lots of work...

retrieved original from phone - uploads OK.
cropped and saved as yesterday - uploads OK.
Inexplicable!
