    same problem – tried all sorts – can get images to media library in a roundabout way but cannot get them any way into my blog.

    You mean you can’t even copy the URL?

    I noticed on the Monotone theme that the image sometimes doesn’t show up in the preview, just once the post goes live. It’s a strange error.

    same problem here. I am hoping it somehow straitens itself out and quickly, or else I am going back to hosting my pics on photobucket and changing to a different theme. Monotone seemed great, but not if it doesn’t work!!!

    Every suggestion on all these threads failed except for Fellowprisoner’s. She nailed it. I’ve tried to insert pictures on my blog from 7 different computers using both Firefox and IE 7, but to no avail. Clearing the Cache didn’t work, I believe that fix only works when half of the “Add Media” box is off-screen, it does not resolve the “White Screen of Death.” Once I clicked post URL before clicking “Insert into Post” it worked just fine. This is a great work-around, but I sure hope WordPress fixes this glitch as there are obviously many people frustrated by this issue.

    Actually, Fellowprisoner’s workaround doesn’t work. Even though the picture is inserted, if you click on the picture – expecting the thumbnail to open up as a full-sized image – you will be disappointed. Your inserted picture links to a “search page” with results listed for an internet search for “Post URL”. This is really maddening!

    That is bizarre. I always just copy the URL of the image and use that to put it in the post. That also gets around the autoformat restrictions like limited size, etc.

    Hi – this may help. Try clicking on add media box. Browse and choose image then click OPEN> crunching…..up should come a thumbnail of the image and further down, a URL. Highlight the URL, go to EDIT and copy. Back to the INSERT MEDIA box and click bottom-most box to save for future loading from the Media Library. (If you don’t do this, your image may disappear from the post later on.) Now click outside of this box into the surrounding grey to take you back to the post.
    Place the cursor where you wish the image to go. Now open the icon with the little tree. Paste the URL into this box and click INSERT. Good luck! Julie PS. You may have to try the latest Firefox browser or your basic inbuilt one. Mine works with Firefox which you can download for free.

    make sure you have the latest flash installed on your system otherwise flash uploader will not work in any case you can try traditional uploader. although i like flash uploader, it is swift.

    I’m experiencing the same blank white page and it keeps saying error on the page. I’ve tried it in flash, i’ve tried the browser. All the pictures are listed in my media library, but I am unable to put them in the post…..

    I guess I will try the copying of URLs and posting. But that is just annoying. My first post allowed me to put pictures in – but after that, it doesn’t want to work.

    I’m currently in the midst of my third bout, over two weeks, with this problem. Have viewed the instructional videos, have downloaded the latest software. Have carefully followed suggestions offered, but nothing seems to consistently work. Today I left it, did emails, and an hour later, a window pops up that shows my post, with the photo, but it can’t be saved, nor does it show up in a editable format. Last time this happened, I came back hours later, and it went at the first try. Its buggy as all hell, and its starting to annoy me.

    I also encountered problems when trying to insert an image into a post. I did two things: I installed the “No Flash Uploader” plugin and made sure that there was only one tab open in my browser, my WordPress write page, when I inserted an image. I haven’t got the blank white screen of death since.

    artintegrity, this worked for me, thanks for the help.
