Seems to be working fine here at the moment.

Could perhaps be either a temporary glitch or a problem at your end

Have just uploaded this as a test without any problems...

When that happens it's usually file size - how big was it?

Remember, PHP has a limit of approx. 5mb, after which time it cannot process more. So, most high quality cameras will require you to upload a reduced version instead. (Forum Photo Gallery is still on my "to do" list!)

For anyone using Mac OSX and iPhoto, simply use File > Export and choose a size to export to the desktop. You can double-check on the exact file size by right-clicking on the copy file on the desktop and choosing 'Get info' before uploading to the Forum. You can also open it in 'Preview' to check that you haven't reduced the size so muck that the photo's minuscule or that it pixelates.

Maybe other Forum members can offer similar tips for MS Windows third-party photo-handling applications.

I will look into this to see if I can get the post to display at some point during the week. To ensure it doesn't happen again I've set an upload limit on 4mb. I think the download section can handle bigger files. After the upgrade I will look into an upload system which doesn't rely on PHP (if such exists)

Post is now fixed. The problem was the rather large photo size in pixels (3840 x 2880) but the file size according to the server was 2.5mb
