Something that came up today

I was trying to upload a jpg file and it appears to meet all the requirements for uploading but it wouldn't get accepted and I kept getting an error message saying that it was the wrong file format. I tried resaving it as a .gif, a .tiff, a .png and from like 5 more programs as a .jpg but none of those would upload. I had no trouble uploading other .jpg's. I finally gave up and posted it to my webpage - http://www.geocities.com/slagoo/knitting-014.jpg
If someone could try downloading it and uploading it to theirs to confirm I am not crazy - or possibly that I am crazy I'd appreciate it.
that filename doesnt seem to exist at that url.
actually, it does, but it doesnt support remote loading... i found a way to grab the img tho.
huh cause I just clicked my link to make sure it worked and it did :( (this is not the computer I uploaded it in so no chance it was in cache)
Are you using the client to upload, or the website? 'Cause I gotta say, I have never yet gotten the web page to actually work for me--though I admit I haven't tried lately. But the client works all zippy and quick and reliable...
Your graphic looks fine from here, but I'm at work and don't have decent graphics software. Yahoo/Geocities wouldn't let me hotlink, but when I pasted the shortcut in the Address line in IE, it worked just fine.
Me again. Yeah, I can't upload it either, using the client. It says wrong file format. Freaky!
ok - Well yesterday I tried both the client and the webpage - go figgure they both hated me and that HAT. I uploaded other pics fine - so I don't understand what could make one jpg different than another
That's odd. I haven't used a client for any of my uploads to fotobilder and it works perfect for me.
well... i tried uploading several versions of that image that i created and couldnt get any of them to work. and for some reason it took me to this page
a couple times.
yes yes yes! ok so I am not loony - I don't know enough about graphics/files to know why that would happen though
I haven't tried it, but make sure you're -really- saving it as a jpg, and not just giving it a jpg extension. Especially in Paint...I'm pretty sure you can only save files as a bmp in Paint, though I'm not positive.
Hrm. I can't see anything especially odd about this file:
knitting-014.jpg: JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.02, aspect ratio, 100 x 100
eclipsed_dc-20040624-1.jpg: JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.01, resolution (DPI), 71 x 71
output on a NetBSD machine.
I'd suggest that this was something odd about the JFIF version if it weren't for your screenscraping example. The fact that it comes through in a screenshot suggests watermarking of some sort to me. To rule that out, though, somebody could try to upload this version
of the image (which is in JFIF 1.01). I'll try this myself just as soon as I get my local Perl modules in order (doesn't look like the web interface's uploads can be expected to work soon).
Have you tried cropping the image, say into quarters, and uploading each quarter? If this is a processing error on the fotobilder side, it'd be relevant to know if they all failed, or if only one/a few failed.
those are some great suggestions I will try them as soon as I get home - I don't know how watermarking could have happened though as I personally took the pic from my digital camera - the same one that I took and uploaded many pictures from without a problem.
sorry you are a grumpy sysadmin but you can be happy now cause your advice helped me a ton. I tried cropping just to 1/4 the size saved for web in photoshop as I always do and it uploaded so I tried doing the same thing with the entire image but again that didn't work so then I tried cropping the image as much as I could and reducing the size of it some more and finally
Everyone I appreciate the help and advice. *jumps for joy*
