    I have tried two different browsers, and when I attempt to upload a pic I get a "security issue" warning that tells me to back up a page, refresh it, and try again. I have done that several times with no success. The upload appears to complete, but at 100% I get the message. Any ideas?

    I haven't had any problems but haven't tried much lately. Here's a test. Seemed to go OK.

    i have been doing some back end work on the images. If you get that kind of message, give it a few minutes before trying again. If it persists, do the usual and clear you cookies, etc. The image recovery will hopefully finish this week.

    I'm a little concerned about your head Tom, you appear to be holding it in your avatar

    Hmmmm. Maybe it's a camera problem. This one worked.

    I would not expect to see a security error, but you might have tried to upload an image larger than 20 Mbytes. Some high end professional cameras are capable of generating such.

    That was it, Tom .... but my camera is only 14mp. I reduced the picture by 50% and it uploaded fine.

    If you are using the "millions of colors setting" there are 3 bytes per pixel. i.e. 3 x 14 Mbytes. I doubt that many of us old folks here can tell the difference between that and jpeg quality 70, which would be about 100 Kbytes instead of 42 Mbytes.
