Hi there
Are you using a PC to upload your pictures? I ask this because when I first joined the forum I tried a few times to upload pictures on my iPhone and my tablet and it would not work it seems it only likes PC for uploading,the other thing that may be an issue is the size of your pictures(they must be less than 500kb or just under half a megabyte in size or it won't work,you may have to resize them using a suitable programme like paint or Photoshop etc.)

If you find that your pictures are to big and you need help re sizing them pm me and I will help you.

Regards

Tel

By all means use the progs suggested but you can resize just by right clicking on the image, chose "edit" and "resize" and then reduce the image either by percentage or number of pixels. For this forum I usually go for 25% but obviously it depends a bit where you are starting from. If you are concerned about loosing or messing up the image  just copy it before you start and use the copy for resizing and leave the original as a backup.

An update to my earlier post after putting some pictures up,

If you got as far as getting the foreign writing in the right hand window just wait a little while and then writing will change into the image you uploaded.

Hope this helps

The "foreign writing" is what's known in the printing/compositing trade as "body type" and used to be used for mocking up copy when laying out pages. Letraset used to (may still do) sell pages of it in all different point sizes! Looks as though it is Latin text but is actually just gobbledegook to fill the spaces around images when laying up the page!

Just what ever came as part of Windows 7 .
Computer > libraries> pictures , brings up the folders with my images, choose the folder and image, right click on it  - edit>resize - say 25% >oK>close > do you want to save>yes.
