Uploading from a Mac- Problem (in Off-topic)


Templar February 26 2007 10:41 PM EST

Is there a problem uploading from a Mac laptop, a G4, for profile images and such? I've always been able to do it from any other computer, has anyone else experienced similar things, and more importantly, how do i fix it?

Can you provide more detail on what problem you are having, exactly? I upload from a Mac (iMac G5) all the time, no problems...

it goes to the page that lets me browse for the picture, and enter a description, but once i begin the upload the pic, the main screen (not chat or left sidebar) whites out with the "try again" error message.

Moon's question is a good un; what you describe happens to me unless I resize the images. And I'm using a Mac G4 laptop...

Let me expand: what I have to do sometimes, even if the file is the right size, is 'resize' it within a picture edit programme of some description, then save it as a new file. That one should upload properly.

What OS are you on?
