Hi,

do you know what type of picture you are uploading?  What is the extension, the bit after the '.' ?

Otherwise email the picture to contactus at mokeforum.com.au and I will take a look.

Hi Terry, the pics are JPEG , my son changed one to GIF and it wouldn't load either.  Do i need to resize them?

Cheers

Hi,

there is a 2mb limit on images being uploaded so you could resize it before uploading and it may work although the message is suggesting there it is not a size issue.  Sometimes there can be a corruption inside the file and compressing/shrinking the file can resolve it.
