    It is a bit of a cumbersome interface. Sometimes I don't even get the indication that anything is happening. I wait on it and eventually it pops in. The size is not necessarily the defining criteria. For JPGs, it's also the height and width in pixels. Do you have any idea what the dimensions of the images are? The Windows Paint program has the ability to resize images if you want to give that a try.

    I used paint to reduce all the pics I want to upload. The largest is 123kb, 384x288 pixels.

    The file I tried to upload last night is 77.4kb, 370x519 pixels. I left it for about an hour while I had dinner and it didn't upload so I gave up and closed the window.

    Is Manage Attachments only accessible thru Reply to Thread?

    Thanks (back shortly, time for dog walk)

    No, it's part of posting anything, either an initial post or as a reply.

    Based upon your numbers, I'm scratching my head as to why those pictures won't upload. Check your PMs. Let's swap emails so you can send me a couple of your pictures so I can give it a try.

    Jim, I would try doing the picture upload using the "paperclip" in the posting tool-bar- skipping the "manage attachments" route. Have you up-loadeded a pile of attachments in the past? I'm not sure how many/much attachments are allowed in this version of VB, if I get a minute (hour) I may be able to find it in the back room
    The old version had a limit. Another point, again depending how you are actually trying this, is in the uploader/re-user-
    Enhanced Attachment Uploading on
    Enhanced Attachment Uploading off
    The forum features an enhanced attachment uploading system that allows you to reuse existing attachments via a drag and drop interface.

    Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use the enhanced system. If you experience problems with the interface, try disabling this option.

    This change is accessed through the User CP.

    Just wondering if this forum will ever upgrade the picture software to be able to read pictures posted on a blog using something SmugMug without having to redo all my pics to fit them here? I try to copy my blog posts to here with tons of pics but it won't read them.

    Sample from soph9 blog.

    What I did was find one of the pictures on your blog, copy the URL for it and added the "img" tags in front and back. The front tag is [img] and the back tag is [/img]...the URL for the picture is placed between these.

    Is this what you want to do?

    but that means I would have to do that for all the pics...and I have hundreds. Most forums I can copy and past then adjust the format a bit....that is why I rarely post here because my blog is the main host of my trips but to have to transfer all the pics manually is daunting and discouraging

    There will be some upgrades down the line...not sure exactly what they will be. But for the time being, maybe you could "tease" us with a few pictures done the "hard way" and then invite us to a specific area of your blog?? That's about all I can say for now. I think smugmug, flickr, etc., have to do it the same way although those picture hosting sites have tools to help the process. Not sure what sort of tools you have on the site where you host your pictures.

    I'll admit, though, that I don't know much about all these fancy things out there with pictures, etc...I barely proficient at uploading and/or linking to other sites.

    Here is a way for you to try- from one of your posts (say at ADV), quote yourself....copy the quote and paste it in over here. If I understand you correct, that procedure should help.
