    hi, i’d like to know why some of the images have this problem. after i upload them, they display correctly. sometimes, after a short period, they do not appear, just a blank white box. clicking on them gives the message ‘the image xxx cannot be displayed because it contains errors’ i don’t get it, i didn’t do anything to it at all. what causes this and how can i solve it? thanks all!

    What program do you use to prepare your images before uploading them?



    irfanview, to do mainly basic resizing.


    Yeah, that should do fine really. There are some issues with iPhoto and some other camera brand-specific image editing programs. Keep an eye on it and if it comes back, let us know.
