    Has anyone been able to upload images to their Library? I get a "binary" error message and it will not let me upload.

    My guess is that the pixel count on your photo is too high. This site apparently has very limited bandwidth. What I do is open the photo in Paint where I reduce the pixel count to about 15% of the original. Depending on the resolution of your photos you might need to reduce the size by a different percentage than what I need. After saving the photo with that change you should be able to upload it to your library without any errors.



    You can also reduce the size of the photo if you use the "Scale image" option during the upload process. Either way, you probably need to reduce the size of the photo by a substantial amount.



    The library size is also limited. If you are over the limit you may need to delete some photos before you can add more.

    Just to add the Max File size is around 1.5M.

    This is also BEFORE you use the JPG editor selection.



    Resize them to about 50-75K and they will upload fine.



    I just did 3 more today.

    I still can't upload. I have scaled my image down to 10% and I am getting a "can't call binaryread" error. I have uploaded in the past. I am using Firefox as my browser if that matters.
