    I have several equipment pictures loaded into my computer and have used this method to post pictures on eBay with great success; but I cannot get them to upload into Talkbass. Does anyone have any suggestions? I took the pictures with an Olympus digital, and have them stored as a file in My Documents. My computer operating system is Windows XP. Thanks.

    I've had no problem with .jpg files saved to a floppy. They have to be 300K (or whatever) but if it's too large you'll get a message to the effect. I'm suprised it doesn't give you some kind of message as to the problem.

    I've had the same problem. The message stating that the file is too large is in a small font and easy to miss. It appears in the download box.

    Pics need to be no larger than 600 pixels x 600 pixels in order for them to be uploaded to TB. If you haven't reduced the size of the files from you digital camera (assuming you paid more than $100 for it and it's not 8 years old) then your files are almost certainly larger than that.

    I'm having trouble uploading pics and I know they are smaller than 600x600. Might this have anything to do with me using firefox?

    It may be Firefox, I use Opera and never had a problem on TB, but I have had 'issues with other sites not working or acting funkey because (their words) i was using a NON-STANDARD browser. Have you tried poping into Internet Explorer, Netscape, or Safari (if you're on a MAC) to see if they would upload then?

    Just cut/paste the IMG field after you have uploaded your pic.
