Unable to upload images

    I’ve been trying to upload 5 images to my blog all day. The uploading stops at 30% and then stops completely. If refresh the page I see the text “crunching” briefly but that’s about it. Uploading for example to Facebook is working normally. This is driving me nuts.

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



    Hi there,
    Exactly which browser and version of it are you using? If you aren’t sure click here to find out > http://whatsmyuseragent.com/

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    Here are more details about the options for uploading images:

    Have you tried the troubleshooting images tips here? http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/troubleshooting-images/



    Note: 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.



    My browser is: Your User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_8) AppleWebKit/534.57.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1.7 Safari/534.57.2

    My images are the same size they’ve always been, 640 pixels wide (can’t remember the height).



    I’d like to rule-out a browser-specific issue.

    Do you have the same trouble with Firefox or Chrome?
