problem uploading images
I am editing my web site and trying to add a few images. I have tried to upload images from “my pictures” on my computer, but the only thing that I get are the image titles and an empty box with a red X displayed. What am I doing wrong
The blog I need help with is nuiahi.wordpress.com.
The instructions for image uploading are here http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/#from-your-computer
I have followed the procedure for uploading and the upload seems to work properly in that the image name(s) appear in the media library, but in no case do I get a thumbnail, either in the image editing screen immediately after the upload or in the library.
My image file sizes vary, but are always less that 1 MB, typically around 500 KB.
Could this be the problem?
Anybody have any thoughts on this vexing problem. My web site (nuiahi.com) is about travel tips for visiting Maui and images play an important part in the presentation. I have a nice collection of images in the file “my documents > my pictures” on my computer, but getting to use them is a major problem.
Any help will be appreciated.
Please tell us exactly what steps you’re following. Also what file type you’re trying to upload.
in no case do I get a thumbnail, either in the image editing screen immediately after the upload or in the library
When you upload an image you normally see a thumbnail of the image and you can use that as a link to the larger image. If it is missing the uploaded image is too large. An image should be 2000 pixels on it’s longest side and then you will get a thumbnail.

Which browser and version of it are you using? Perhaps you are viewing a cached copy so try these http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/
@timethief: I thought of a couple of possible culprits, you thought of a couple more – we’ll pin it down eventually!
(By the way, there’s no 2000px restriction: I just uploaded a 4000px wide image, complete with its thumbnail and everything.)
That’s good to know as my knowledge dates back to the 2.5 wp version on this issue and we are now at 2.9.
