All uploads have been approved and there are non sitting in limbo in your user upload folder.

How big where the images. What file type where they? Images can have many different file types and we support a limited number.

This is the first time I've tried this, so I'm not surprised I did something wrong.

JPEG Image

2.48 MB (2,607,448 bytes)

Forget it. I used photobucket. Thanks for your help.

Oh my! There is no way we would ever permit a 2+MB image to be uploaded. That would take most users minutes to download just to view. Thats about 1 the size of our max upload of 250KB. Please check some of the posts in this forum on how to resize your images as there is very little need to be working with that size of an image for these purposes.
