    Default Pictures uploading problem!

    Hi folks, as usual I'm having great computer-techno-problems!
    (3+ yrs ago I lost my computer-viginity aged 50).

    I cannot (NO MATTER HOW LONG I STAY AT IT ?) manage to 'UPLOAD' any photo at all
    from my pitifully tiny collection of car pix that exist inside my computer in a thing called 'iphoto' ?

    YEP! You guessed right! ROTTEN APPLE ! [Cannot use a 'normal' PC at all !!!!! ]

    Our 1st ever & ONLY computer is a 2007 APPLEMAC osx 10.4 TIGER Desktop with DIAL-UP only-(due to location) & only yesterday I "SOMEHOW" managed to 'upload' 2 new albums with several photos.:

    This morning I tried to continue this 'OHSOPLEASANTPASTIME' ...in exactly the same way that I did yesterday BUT the AF = popdown thingy which has 3 things stating "choose file" does NOTHING when pressed & another AF=popdown thing which has a list of applications(?)/type names.etc & 'choose or/& cancel' in lower right bottom ONLY has 'CANCEL' lit up.
    The 'CHOOSE' button will NOT 'light-up' or operate?!!

    I do hope I have made myself very clear & you all understand exactly what I am talking about!

    Ha ! ....sorry......!

    So... I GAVE UP! .... (& to think some people play computers for FUN? = wot a world!)

    PLEASE ? ... anyone who uses Macs & may assist me would be forever in my debt as I know NOBODY locally (or anywhere else)with a Mac or even ANYONE at all who could assist me!
    (& when phoning MAC, they talk in another language!)

    [OF COURSE, I went to all the computer's "HELP-sites-thingys" =useless! ]
    ...blaaghhh!!!

    IF I succeeded yesterday, WHY CAN I NOT DO IT TODAY ?

    (Mind you, I have no real clue as to HOW I did succeed yesterday & in 3 years I only managed to put 2 albums onto AF before the CRASH anyway).

    Its enough to make ya jump up screaming; "OH, WOT A FEEKING!....Toyota! "

    Thanks for all the great & pleasant messages from all me ol' mates! Great to talk with you all.

    Merci, Markrottenapples&stilltalking=SNAFU

    Mark, would you know what actual size the pictures you are trying to load are?

    Maybe they are too large(file size) for the upload application?

    My comp skills are woeful at best too mate but I have tried to load photos to sites that are too large. Check

    the upload window for different file types and sizes. Other than that, I got nothing.

    If they are too large, someone here might be able to talk you through converting them. The other option would be send them as an attachment to someone who can resize them or upload them for you.

    It's frustrating when you know what you want to do but just can't make it happen.

    Actually mate, re-reading the post, maybe the problem is the dial up connection. You might need to

    compress the files and send them to someone to upload. No, no, not me . I'd bugger it totally too.

    yeah I'd say its the file size. If a photo is straight off the digital camera, it's usually bulging with data so needs to be compressed.

    G'day Mark,
    you need to export the image from iphoto to ,say, your desktop. You'll then have a 'physical
    ' item to play with.
    Is it for your album or as an attachment to a message?
    Don't know if it makes any difference, but it makes me sound like I know what I am talking about.
    They are basically the same method, follow the buttons, as you did before.

    I don't think it's enabled yet. It's still on the To-Do list.

    I get an Action Disallowed message when I go to the Upload Centre.

    It's all the joy of rebuilding the site. Things may take a while to settle down. So don't be surprised if things seem to not work or are different than before.

    G'day,
    I get an error 404 not found when I try to look at galleries, however, i uploaded an image to my gallery, but can only look at it through the Nav panel, user control panel, pictures & albums. All of which means, I think, that only I can look at my albums.

    Yep the attachment of images still work, but just make sure they are under 100kB - that too may be the source of Marks woes if they are too big.

    Default WOW! Many thanks to all!

    I am now much more confused than before....BUT thats wot friends are for!

    YES! The pix may be too BIG ,etc, & I shall attempt that 'Attached thumbnail-stuff' but most of the photos were taken with either a mobile-phone camera-(NOT mine) or the inbuilt appleMac camera...
    all of which means ZERO to me?

    I shall keep trying tho' .... when I'm really BORED & MELLOW

    That seems RARE lately!...(the mellow part, I mean!).

    Any further advice will be much appreciated as I cannot even 'LOG OUT' or today cannot locate the 'USER CONTROL PANEL" ?!!!
    [Hmmmm.... is it me ... or YOU ? ]

    Can it not be made even MUCH SIMPLER for morons? ...please?

    Best wishes, Markpixies!

    Hi Les, yes! I did understand most of what you said (as above) & it is for an Aussiefrog album.

    I "moved' a few pics from 'iphoto' to my 'Desktop' but when one returns to the AF-forum & must 'upload photo' by pressing "CHOOSE FILE"....I STILL am NOT ALLOWED to 'choose a file?

    Naturally, being a total 'puter moron & SO damned isolate I cannot ask anyone -let alone be on the 'NET' & phone @the same time!...

    (YEH! I KNOW- move to the city-wanna buy a 3 bedroom steelframe renovators delight in the glorious cooler'climate '[email protected]$200=BIGGIES?) =I AM REALLY NOT JOKING!
    We wanna move & asap!

    Anyway, I need an AppleMac Expert PLEEEEEEEASE ????????? HELP?
    I'll do ANYTHING! .............. EVEN never post a 'smilie' as long as I live?

    Someone MUST know how to DO THIS simple 'putting pix on aussiefrogs"?
    [ Mebbe G/god/s(?) does NOT wish the world to see my Renault collection? ]

    ps; also Les, as for that NAV PANEL/LOG OUT process= What BLACK AREA? -(IT will not do it & I been trying for many mths b4 the CRASH ! )

    Thanks mlb, you've given me much useful info & whilst many of the individual photos are under 100KB, some are 500KB+...some are actually only 5KB..so HOW does one make the KB of a photo smaller?

    Also(sorry!)=how does one , (using an APPLEMAC,remember!)= "ATTACH" images to the 'aussiefrog' forum' = pictures-album?

    [I have managed to send emails with pix to people successfully BUT...?]

    (Betcha didn't even KNOW such 'computer-illiterate' people like me existed in this country anymore?!!)

    [the worst part is having succeeded only 2 days ago in posting TWO albums onto AF & not being able to repeat this!]

    Many thanks, Markbut sorta

    Gidday Mr/Ms/Mrs Iron Oxide, I'm enjoying the 'daffy-duk pluk-series' of posts but I cannot get to the 'gist' of it? I guess I'm way too OLD!

    Also AMERICAN HUMOUR may sometimes not be totally understood by Autralians! Ha!

    However, I agree about the 'shoes'!


    Best wishes, Mark.

    Default pictues= size means ALL!

    After careful thought - ( BL**DY HARD WORK when ya dead ), I went BACK to appleMac's "iphoto'

    thingydbob & did something unusual -(as says Daffy, it took duckin' HOURS & HOURS!).

    -I believe is called PHOTO-EDITING.

    Somehow I made all the photos I wished to post -(& spent weeks,months..trying!??)- to find that

    'CROPPING' =chopping the pix- or ( 'downsizing' as they now call it when dealing with the incomes &

    livelihoods of fellow-human-beans) &...


    "Voila!" , or ...... "Merde Holy"! .....

    or some such peurile schoolboy-1960's Ocker-French-lingoistic-jingoistic-abomination-exclamation......



    IT WORKED!

    What a hellish-process just to show some folks,(thankfully,gratefully, think they!) you may NEVER-

    EVER meet, a buncha ol' photos of cars ya once or still do own! Hmmm?

    [still, my GLORIOUS youth was littered with 1930s/40s/50s/60s/70s =AUTO-EROTICA-EXOTICA from all corners of the Globe, as I frittered away many large INHERITED FORTUNES =$$$- during the 1970s/early 1908s well before the age of 30.......
    (which is why NOBODY has the slightest sympathy for me now, particularly my 'car-hating-grey-porridge-driving' parents, who inherited this SAME vast $$$ themselves but didn't approve of my lifestyle .............
    ...AND from early childhood, I was constantly told there would be larger inheritances to come, so I fully intended to "be sensible" with my money by age 30! ] ....... "Sure Mark! "

    Checkout ; MY ALBUMS = "1982 BRONZE RENAULT 20TS", " VARIOUS RENAULT CARS" (to be continued) & "MY OTHER CARS" - (also 2be cont.). ......... " 'tis pretty DULL fare ! "
    (I'm gonna post many future pix).

    HEALTH WARNING! (the content is exceedingly BORING, so pop a few Valiums & some alcohol 1st ?)


    The worst problem with UPLOADING pix was that I don't own any kinda camera, even a mobile-phone

    camera& many of my photos were take with me holding up an ancient paper-type photo in front

    of the appleMac's "inbuilt-camera"-(so thats why some they look odd!)

    Such a pity the FINEST vehicles were either never photographed or lost with so many possessions over my long & unstable lifestyle!

    OH WELL! I got the memories & how many of you owned & driven = (Nimbin-dailydriver)=
    an ex-army HAFLINGER? (see QLD Haflinger Club)


    Thanks for all the advice & now at least I can get a camera & sell some RENAULTS on film!

    Regards, Markeven after
