Default Need help posting pics

I tried to follow the tutorials on posting pics and decided to upload first into the member galleries. When I try to upload my ONE picture that I was wanting to post, it took FOREVER and I finally gave up. I did this twice and gave up after about 10 minutes (each time) of it saying it was processing or whatever. Am I doing something wrong or does it really take longer than 10 minutes to upload one pic into member gallery? I am new to posting on the internet so any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Did you resize the image yourself before uploading it? Typically, you would resize to about 800 pixels on the long side, save that to a separate file (do NOT overwrite the original) and upload the smaller one. Should happen quickly.

If you don't have software to do it, lots of them are free on the internet, like Irfanview or others.

Yes I resized it in photoshop to 621x418 with a 300 res. I am totally unsure what I should be saving it as after that. I have it as a psd and a jpg. Which I am not even sure what that exactly means. I am trying to post pics and not just lurk but I am upload illiterate!

Thanks Mr. Pickles for your help!

If you resized and saved it as a JPG, then try and upload that. I just checked, and the "upload process" is functioning.

Thanks Mr. Pickles, I finally figured it out with your help! I was deleting a part of the address (?) after I clicked on it from my folder (just to shorten it) and this time I just left it whole and it worked!

Thanks again Mr. Pickles!
