New trouble uploading images...

#1 Post by Sure Squintsalot » Fri Dec 15, 2023 11:15 pm

Nothing's working when trying to upload images within a post. It seems to upload, then I keep getting:

"The image file you tried to attach is invalid."

Anyone else seen or is getting this error?

What format are you trying to upload ?

Happy to try an experiment from here

I have had the same problem with a simple jpg image yesterday. It is a problem of this particular forum, I had no problem uploading the same picture to another website.

I've tried ALL formats, just to see....

But I only load .jpegs to this site and even the same images I've loaded to other threads on this site won't upload.

Seems like it's back. No luck in uploading a screenshot in either .jpg or .png formats and reduced in size as low as 38kb.

Hi again, group, a few days ago I could not download issues of: "Microbehunter Magazine"..I was only allowed to "purchase printed copies of any selected issue"..none of the series permitted me to download the magazine ( as I used to do all the time).

I wanted to download magazine issues in which I contributed articles with images..none download for me..I may only "purchase printed copies". Is this a realted problem ? charlie g

To keep the experiment simple … I am about to try uploading the same small scan that I did before:

and yes, I get the same error message.
