    I seriously cannot upload my photos. Doesn't matter what format I put them in or if they're straight out of the camera, I can't get them to upload. It just keeps giving me this error

    ERROR: Wrong filetype (has to be a .JPEG, .PNG or .GIF). Yours is:

    Thats exactly what it says. GRRRR, I'm so annoyed!

    When you click on your picture after browsing to it, does it say something like "chickens.jpeg"?

    Possibly too big? I would shrink them and try again. If you want I can do it for you if you email them to me...or send you a shrinker through email so you can have it for future photos [​IMG] It worked for someone else on here [​IMG] I don't get home from work until 3:30 though so I can get it to you a little after that [​IMG]

    What "type" are you trying to upload?

    It does have the .jpg after the photo name. Maybe they just are too big. I know BYC resizes them down for me. Most of the photos are around 3mb.

    I'll try to resize them.

    Thanks! [​IMG]
