I think bmp's are bugged for some reason.  They're allowed on the forums, but I just can't figure out why they're not showing.

 

I'd try to use PNG or JPG if you can.

Open it in Paint, and reduce the size.  Supposed to be less than 20 MB, but I think sometimes it's better to keep it around 10 or so.  Save the file as a .jpg in Paint also.  Technically you don't have to, but .bmp's are a lot bigger than a .jpg, for the same size picture.  Just save it that way to your desktop temporarily or where ever, post it via ImgSafe, then trash it....keep your original for working with.

 

That error message generally means it's too big.  But I think at times, the servers are really busy and things get slowed down.  I notice this over the holidays, but after reducing size I had no problem.  Also, try uploading and posting one picture at a time only.  You can keep your message open on a separate tab, and keep adding the pics from another tab, one at a time.  Seems to avoid problems.

Same image, .jpg 122kb from Img Safe... same error :

 

An error occurred

You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.

 

 

 

Is it something with my permission settings on the server?

I'm sorry that you're having such troubles.

 

Could you send me the link to the jpg image you're trying to post?

 

I can then try it out, and see what happens.

 

As I've said before, the bmp thing is a known issue.  I can't even get them to work.  But jpgs should work no problem.

 

You have nothing on your forum account that limits your ability to hotlink images from dropbox or another file hosting website.

 

We'll squash this eventually.

Hey Klai,

Don't worry, it's not really a big deal to me... just an annoyance. Here's the link to the small .jpg:

I tried it on two accounts.  My main one, which has admin access.  And a second one I created.  Both worked.
 
I'm linking the image like this:
[img=https://dl.dropbox.com/s/pah80ynfz2djc0a/VONRD1~1%20small.jpg?dl=0]
Could you try this, and let me know if it works?  If it doesn't, then we have a bigger problem.

Thanks Barton! 

Hey, I'll build you a set of skins if you stay   ;)

 

Just kidding Bud. I know you have RL stuff to take care of. Still... WHEN you return a fresh set of clothes is yours for the asking.
