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

    (1) How you are connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com?

    The way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers. Also note that the main dashboard isn’t designed to work with touch devices through the tablet and smartphone browsers.

    (2) Exactly which browser(s) and version of them have your tried using. If you aren’t sure you can click here to find out > http://whatsmyuseragent.com/

    Note: The most common cause of this issue is trying to upload HUGE images directly from a camera into blogs and that’s what you are doing. The most recent image you have on the front page is 4,272px × 2,848px (scaled to 825px × 550px)

    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.

    Thank you for the follow up. I went ahead and resized my photo to the smallest available size. It still won’t upload. The site “thinks” about uploading for hours on end. I’ve never had any issues in the past. Please advise. Thanks!
