    This is what happens when I try and upload anything beyond 1200x800 not sure if its because of my web browser? So both my images are low to medium resolution any input? Moderator?

    @ErniesFlock , which browser and version are you using? As a test, could you also try to use Google Chrome and/or Firefox to see if it's a problem with the browser and/or version?

    @Nifty-Chicken Thoses are the two I actually use Chrome more so for mac if that makes a difference? Worse comes to worse in the unlikely event of winning any contest I can always send the big res file then. Just dont want anyone overlooked if they are going through the same upload issue. Thanks for your attention in this matter :)

    Thanks! Yup, we usually ask the winners for the largest versions anyway.

    So, anybody having this problem... go ahead and upload a smaller version, but make sure you keep a large version on your computer! :)

    Been uploading photos all morning and suddenly, I get error messages and can't do it at all. So, I even made them all smaller, in case the size was an issue and nope, same problem.

    I get the error message: Some images failed to upload:
    • sick legbar chick 8 wk.jpg - Error, param staticContentPath is not a directory! [/var/www/html/static.backyardchickens.com/pub//imgrepo]

    You can try re-selecting them and uploading again.

    Me too, my error wording is identical.
    I had already uploaded 2 pics to a private message and then started getting the error with each additional photo.
    I tried changing the photo's directory, name, etc. No luck.
    This is a sudden issue.
    I am using FireFox, but I doubt it is a browser issue.
