It sounds to me like it might be a file size problem. How large is the image? I'm not referring so much to the KB as the pixel size. Try shrinking it down, and if that doesn't work, give us another holler.

By the way, I recently found out about an awesome FREE program for reducing photo images. It's called PixResizer (just Google it). The quality difference is incredible. I've resized photos using both that program and PSP and the PSP file is pixelated, while the PixResizer image is nice and clear. I have to reduce all the photos I send to my grandparents because they can't handle an image that doesn't fit neatly within the email message (I'm just grateful they know how to open the email at all, lol), and my grandmother couldn't get over how much clearer the pictures were.

I had problems when I first started here too. My problem was that my files were too large. Make sure your image file is no larger than 500 x 500 (pixels) and the the file size is no larger than 200kb to see if that helps.

Actually the file images should be no larger than around 125 -130.

If you are receiving error messages then it is not a file size problem. I will PM you to get more information and hopefully get this resolved.

Question Same problem

I seem to be having the same problem, instead of uploading the file it sends me to an error page. Please help!

Default Problem Uploading

I am a 'newbie' and am stuck! I came upon this thread and assume it is a good place to start.

I have uploaded a few scrap pages and had no problem whatsoever. Yesterday, I uploaded a page. I inadvertently grabbed my large file rather than the one that I saved specifically to upload. Of course, I got an error message and I knew why. I tried uploading again several times without any success. My file size is
500 X 500 (61.4kb) and I continue to get an error message. It shows that I have 2 photos in the queue. Please help!

Thank you,
marylc

Error Message:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 9600 bytes) in /home/stoneacc/public_html/gallery/image-inc.php on line 102

Default Still Having Problem

I tried to upload two more scrap pages tonight without success. The pages are within the stated guidelines. I get an error message each time. No participation for me...:-(

I'm sure the designers won't hold it against you if the problem was the layouts were in queue.

Here's the problem as it's been explained to me. When you try to upload an image that's too large, it sits there in the queue even though it can't upload. Then, everything you try to upload after it gets stuck behind it (think Augustus Gloop in the tube on Willy Wonka). So we just need to clear the tube, and you'll be fine.

Now if only I can remember how to clear the tube. lol. Janalyn knows how to do this and I need to get the kids to school. But if she hasn't beaten me to the punch, I'll look into it when I get back. PM me with the challenges you were trying to upload and I'll make sure the designers know what happened.
