Hi,

Can anybody help me, I'm trying to load my pictures on the website from my last trip and it keeps on giving me an error message. It says General Error, and something about an SQL or something?

I don't know what to do now?

Thanks,

Samantha

Thanks LQ :D

Mant, which hosting site are you using for your pics? Flickr, Photobucket etc? And what size are the pics you are trying to copy into your post?

Hi Dinkybird,

I'm using Tinypic and I normally download to message board. So they are very big.

That might be the problem - when you select the pic size to post, it must be a max of 800pix wide.

Have a read here for some help. We do not encourage members to use Tinypic any more. And also have a read here.

Let me know how it goes.

Ok, I'll try Photobucket instead of Tinypic.

Thanks,

What would you suggest we use as a good alternative, DB? And what about the photos used previously still hosted on Tinypic? :roll: :roll:

Flickr or Photobucket are good alternatives. Roaneric and I wrote a couple of tutorials on how to use the basic functions of both sites, which DB linked to in her post above.

The problem we have with Tinypics is that some of the photos hosted with them have been "switched", sometimes to ones that are less than savoury. We aren't sure how this happens but it means we have to go through older posts checking. When we find missing or irrelevant photos we will PM the poster and ask them to replace. If we don't get a response then we delete the photo. It's just a lot of hard work for us.

If your photos hosted at Tinypics are still showing without a problem then there is no need to do anything.

Hi Dinkybird,

I have loaded my pictures onto Photobucket and every time I try and make them smaller to 800x600 they change back to the size they were and don't stay at that size.

I don't know what to do now?

Thanks,

Samantha

Mant, when you resize them in Photobucket are you saving them? If not you need to but this then creates a new version of the photo and a new address. You need to use this new file to load onto the forum.

You may be better resizing the photos on your own computer first, using Picture Manager - there is a tutorial on how to do this here. Once you have resized them try uploading them into Photobucket.
