Hi Georgiana and starx, thank you both for answering my question,
I am still having problems, I am only trying to upload one photo at a time and I know it uploads the photo because after a few moments I can see the picture. However, it continues showing the loading symbol active well after it has loaded. This symbol just carries on cycling round and round and for a long time after the image should have loaded.
As the image I am trying to upload is only about 70k it is not a matter of trying to load too big an image. I tried loading a photo that I had already loaded on the page when everything was working fine but it is doing the same with that photograph now. Starx it is reassuring that I am not the only one experiencing this difficulty. I might give them tomorrow to see if it gets sorted out if not I will then contact the HP team as you suggest.
