Why won’t my photos upload?

If your photos won’t upload, check the file name for unusual characters like ampersands (&) or spaces. Characters other than letters, numbers and hyphens can cause trouble with the system.

Photos should be in standard image formats such as jpg, png, or gif. Word documents and pdf files will not work.

For best results, each image should be no more than 450px wide. File size should be a a few 100K. Photos larger than 500K may cause the uploader to hang.

If your image won’t upload, try reducing the dimensions (image size) and/or megabyte size. If this does not work, please send us a photo and the URL for a page where you are trying to attach the image.
