what's the pic size and format?

90k max file size, 600x800 max pixel dimensions (or thereabouts)

must be jpg or gif formats too

yea, i'm at work. I know we have a firewall that doesn't allow pictures in unless they are zipped. But they allow pics to be sent out.

I have to concur Woody ...

I've successfully found my way around most of the nuances of this software ;) , but I still run into times , for instance , when I cannot include a pic from my HD . I always follow the parameters [ file-size/type ] .

I have , on a modest number of occassions , given up altogether .

This place might be haunted ya know :D ;) ;)

Or is that just Junk's Mommas past coming back ....... [glow=red,200,3000] :flipoff2: :banana: :flipoff2:[/glow]

my guess is that since the forum software needs to effectively read your desktop to retreive the file, your firewall is resisting. You either A> need to make friends with another lister to post images, B> do it from home only, or C> find outside photohosting for images.

Wish I had an easier solution...
