I don't see your ball Leesa.  Perhaps you are in the process of posting it?

I'm looking forward to seeing your progress in the drawing course.  :gl2:

HI there

having lots of trouble uploading it.

just worked out it is too big or something.  don't know how to make it less tha 500 whatevers - what is needed to have it uploaded. 

ahhh frustrating. cause its done and dusted and finished and i don't have a clue now how to get it on here for the moment.

but i have to go to bed. its midnight and been at this for a while.

sorry but i will get it up as soon as i can.

Not sure why this is not working or how this happened when the other pictures have worked fine before.

sorry dumping.  any ideas of what to do. 

anyway.  thankyou for the look .... 

see you... i wont be gone hopefully for long... but i will try tomorrow night to somehow get this up...

Hi Leessa--I know the feeling.  This happened to me when I tried to post photos from my Mac directly from the Reply Window rather than pasting in the BBC code which is under your photo in your Gallery.  Are you Copying and Pasting that to Post?  I find that works.  The other issue I had was that I needed to buy the cheap Adobe Photoshop and edit my photos before posting as the Photos is my Pictures file weren't working.  It seemed like the file was too big.  You may not have a Mac and this may not be your problem  Hope this helps a little.

You don't say what operating system you are using, but for Win7 I use
You install it then right click on an image file and choose resize picture.
It is based on the original Microsoft powertoy image resizer for WinXP which you can find under powertoys on the lower half of this page (if you use XP).

The advantage is that you do not have to be online to use it.
You can also batch process by selecting a group of files and right-clicking on one of them.

Leessa please don't use the attach feature, rather use the gallery, then your photos are available for use in other posts; others can view all your artworks in one place, etc. You can also upload larger photos to your gallery. Learn how to use the gallery feature HERE O0
