    Default test trying to add images. my images do not attach

    this is a test
    Trying to add an image.

    I attach the file in the file chooser
    hit upload and nothing happens.reckjmm.jpg

    this is ridiculous, there's a file chooser, but it won't upload the file.
    yet if I point to a web site it downloads it... that's ridiculous to have to upload an image to a remote location to get it on here.

    thanks, but not ez pz.

    so much different than every other forum I have ever been on. All just use file chooser, and submit.

    so much more difficult.

    Thank you.reckjmm.jpg

    Check the image size. In the past there was a restriction on size. Now the software will resize the image up to a point.
    I usually have no problem with a 250 - 60kb image size.
    Check the "Sticky Note" at the start of the South Bend Forum, 'Sticky: Posting pictures.........."

    The PM forum is a bit clunky but the price is right and there is a lot of useful content from users.

    Windows 10, not sure what last computer was, everything seems to work fine until I click on download, then nothing happens.

    Just tried again, same situation.

    Uploading images is a challenge on PM, but it seems to work when file sizes are under 90k

    I've been uploading pics for years without a problem, recently got a new computer, still using same camera, can no longer upload pics. I'll try again, still fails to upload. How do I check file size?

    Figured out how to resize pics, lowest is .2mp, computer says that is best for thumbnail pics, still will not upload.

    20200328_215212.jpgtesting using IE

    so the problem appears to be chrome, and I suspect that this is due to using flash player to upload. flash is discontinued

    the funny thing is that this image appears correctly with all viewers, but it inserts upside down and displays back upside down.

    Must be my antique equip

    ALL uploading on desktop (Win 10 and Firefox) - though photos are now taken by the "phone" (and emailed to desktop for processing)

    See my grinding posts in General today

    PM ALWAYS resizes for me - regardless of how large a file size

    I only use the "insert image" icon (and Go Advanced)

    My favorite for good size low file size "pictures"
