    You're doing something wrong - very likely your images are too large. You'll know that's the case if you get a red "security warning" notice.

    Here's a FULL rundown on how to post pictures: https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/how-to-post-photos.864359/

    It explains everything you'd need to know - follow those steps depending on which method suits you best.

    I've noticed the same problem lately. Can't just cut and paste into a thread as in the past. Not a computer person so may take me a little longer to figure out why.

    It all seems to be working well.

    Having a description of what error is being received would be helpful... I'm sure it's something simple

    This is the message I receive which is only recently and it happens regardless of the source.

    The following error occurred:

    The uploaded file does not have an allowed extension.

    You can't upload .GIF images - those are licensed. There are a few other formats you can't use but I certainly don't know them all

    Convert to .JPG or .PNG and you'll be fine.

    Every platform has rules about stuff like this - QRZ uses XenForo software for the forums and must follow their rules

    TRUST me it works if you follow the software rules. We literally have HUNDREDS of pictures successfully uploaded to QRZ every single day, and thousands every week.

    Depends on the image - there are size limits.

    Glad you got it working
