    I get to the point where I have the basic uploader sees the .jpeg image I have on my desktop, but when I go to "upload image(s)", I get the response: Sawmillcreek says the image upload failed. I think I'm going to make an appt. with a genius at the local Mac store and see if they can see where I make the mistake.

    >>Mac<<

    I think we've found the problem

    Just kidding
    Unleaded tastes a little tangy, supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

    Don I have that issue when my picture files are too big. I tried to upload a file last night that was 2.4 megs and it wouldn't let me. I went into my graphics program scaled down the image to 200k and no problem with the upload.

    My guess is that your file is too large, or you have the incorrect extension type after the photo.
    Resize the photo and be sure to save and upload in jpeg.

    There's a free app in the app store called "Resize it". Works very well for exactly what you're trying to do.

    I never download directly from Iphoto on my mac.

    When in Iphoto and looking at the photo you want, click "export image" and it will give you a chance to resize and name it. Then save to desktop so you can find it easily when uploading.

    IMG_0600.jpgWow, I finally got it to work. Thanks for the help! It was the size of the image. What you see is Snicker the neighbors cat who plopped himself into the frame of the clock I was making. The plans were thrown over the frame while I cut something on the TS and he just pushed the plans down into the frame as a cushion. Snicker comes from two doors down, they have a new lively dog who pesters him and he is getting too old to put up with that. Their old slower moving dog was his buddy, but passed away and he misses him terribly. He loves human companionship too. If I'm using hand tools he'll keep me company.
