    Why, oh why, did it take me five attempts to successfully upload my photo??? This should not be the case!!! During the past two months I have had more problems posting things ion my blog than Carter has pills, AND I'M SICK OF IT!!! Don't tell me to avoid using al;l caps, because the buildup of frustration forces one to!! It's time WordPress got its act together!

  2. How large is the picture; file size in Kb?

    What are you uploading from? PC? Camera? Other?

    How are you connecting to the web?

    I don't know what the image size has to do with it, b/c it did end up uploading, but just for the record it was 99MB. I uploaded it from a Folder stored in my PC. As for connecting to the web I have an ISP you've probably never heard of - Brighthouse. I very rarely have a problem uploading pics on other sites, but WordPress is just awful! For advertising a biz it's great, but from a technological standpoint it's horrible.

    Note: The most common cause of issues with image uploading is trying to upload HUGE images directly from a camera into blogs.
    Prior to uploading any image into your blog, regardless if it’s a header image, a featured image, an image in a post or page, in a Post format (Gallery or Image), an image for sidebar display in an image widget or a text widget, you can optimize and re-size it in either a desktop image editing software or online image editing software to fit the space you intend to use it in. By undertaking proper image preparation first you will get the best image quality, won't be wasting your media storage space, and won't be wasting your time troubleshooting.

  5. but just for the record it was 99MB.

    99 MegaBytes? Assuming that's not a typo, that is extremely HUGE. Larger than many computer programs.

    Uploaded images really should not exceed 100Kb (Kilobits) or just a very small fraction of yours.

    Yes, that could have EVERYTHING to do with your uploading problems.

    Oh boy, I thought I expressed myself clearly, but I must not have. What I said was that I tried (and on the fifth attempt succeeded) uploading directly from my computer (not the camera).

    Also, up until soetime in July I had no problem whatsoever uploading photos, so the fact that all of a sudden I start having a problem uploading doesn't make any sense. Same camera, same computer, same ISP, same methods exactly...
