Problem uploading pictures anyone?

jmapatterson's picture

I'm just a little frustrated . . . is anyone else having problems uploading their pictures?  I was on a roll posting, but after about 12 postings, I could not load the rest.  The pictures are the correct size (even smaller) and the same as those that successfully loaded, but I keep getting an error message that the pix is not the correct size. 

Also, seems all the info about the contest itself is no longer on the site--or maybe I'm just blind?  Was trying to find the deadline date for posting and also anything else that could help me troubleshoot the problem about posting.

I'm just  a little frustrated as I've even gone to Nashville, about 75 miles away, to find some of the ingredients.  Not that they are that exotic, but hard to find in my small town Kroger-the only shopping alternative we have except for Sam's.  Stuff like escarole, fennel, broccolini....

I've enjoyed the discipline of the challenge and trying new recipes, but don't think I would do it on a regular basis.. . especially with the recent problem with uploading my entries!

The people who gave us golf and called it a game are the same people who gave us bag pipes and called it music and haggis and called it food.

I posted this orginally in Fine Cooking Fedback as I did not see this section.  Sorry-but just frustrated that I can't upload these pix!

You posted it in the correct section to start with, this section was for a totally different project, cooking from a single cookbook. Repeating the same post in different sections doesn't help your cause, may even have the opposite effect.

I have been experiencing the exact same problem. I successfully posted my first few recipes and now I am unable to upload photos of the same size. The deadline is this Thursday (March 5th) and I will be very disappointed if I can't get my posts in. Can anyone at FC help????

Post a thread to the site administrator and maybe someone will see it.

I received a message from Fine Cooking with the following info:

The maximum size of the picture has been decreased to 2 pixels-down from 4 because of the large number of posts.

If you are using Internet Explorer as your browser, try Mozilla Firefox.

Deadline is March 5th.

Good luck.

Thank you so much for this. I really think they should have made this public. Luckily we figured out a way to reduce the size of my photos (Microsoft Picture Manager).

I'm now happily posting again.

Good Luck
