Uploading images to blog post

  1. Hello
    i tried to upload images to a blog post this afternoon and although i could attach the image it wouldn't show. Does anyone know what the issue is?
    Thanks
    Milroy's

    The blog I need help with is milroys.wordpress.com.

  2. These are the accepted file types:
    .jpg/.jpeg
    .gif
    .png

    For more details about the options for uploading images see:

    For troubleshooting images tips see > http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/troubleshooting-images/

    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.

  3. Thanks i haven't had a problem in the past though, will the image not show if it is too big?

  4. The most common problem we see on this forum is causing by bloggers uploading HUGE oversized images from their cameras into their blogs.

  5. Here's an example in this post:
    Courvoisier Cocktail Tasting
    Here's the image > http://milroys.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/img_0402.jpg
    Here's the size:
    2,276.93 KB (2,331,579 bytes)
    2,448px × 3,264px
    note the software scaled to down 430px × 574px so it would fit into the post.

  6. Hi there
    The only thing is the image that i have tried to upload is tiny, and although it successfully uploads the image will not show.
    Thanks
    Charlotte
