What are you on about? You had a problem loading photos, an answer was given, you've now succeeded in loading them.

Just as a few days ago you posted a question about smileys and go an anwer within two minuites. What sort of support is it you think is missing?

Re: Cannot upload photos

Also can't upload photos i.e. the limit is set ridiculously low.

If EF continues in this way, then we'll be reliant on comprehensible text. No media on this planet survives on text only. We have considerably moved on since smoke clouds.

Definitely a reason for no more EF on my part. Oh well, would try an emoji, but not sure that it's too much for the capacity of the server.

If EF is dying, then why doesn't EF communicate this.
It reminds me of UBS, which just lets its employees drop-off without explanation.

EF represents a part of moving to CH, and it's sad to see it so utterly dilapidated.

800X600 is more than enough for a forum.

No media on this planet survives on text only.
1. The books I read survive on text. Yours might have images though...

2. EF does not survive on text alone. This is the internet. The cool thing about it is called "link". So you don't actually need to upload pictures, you link to them.

Re: Cannot upload photos

I’ve uploaded images in the past as well, and have been unable to do so recently. So something has changed. Perhaps the facility to resize is changed, not working, whatever.

It’s reasonable to ask about it. So what’s changed?

Totally reasonable to ask.
They apparently limited the upload size of pictures.

The following was 1280x873, it was not accepted by EF as the max. is now 800x600. (It tells you so when you try).
So I resized it to 800x546 and then could upload it without any problems.

Name:  test_upload.jpg
Views: 53
Size:  158.0 KB

Seems to me the system maybe used to resize automatically and no longer does. So if you don't try to upload anything bigger than 800x600 you'll be fine. See mine.

Okay, this smiley is only 323x242, so there must be an other reason here why the system declared "can not upload photos" which is even visible in the souce code of your post.

Okay, this IS getting interesting

addition, I "stole" your smiley, omtatsat, and uploaded it:
Name:  smiley_omtatsat.jpg
Views: 51
Size:  32.5 KB

No problem

It's you mate, not EF.

addition 2:
You mentioned a win-10 update and it seems you have that problem since then. Maybe you should reset your computer to before that update and check. I can't help you with that, I avoid win-10 like the plague.
