    I think you're ahead of everyone else. There are currently reports of people not being able to even start hubs!

        I have had this problem before.

        It might be hubpages technical problem, but try these tips.

        1. Update or install adobe flash
        2. Upgrade to Firefox 4
        3. Check the photo size and type to make sure the are compatible with Hubs

    I was having the same problem while using Google Chrome. I don't know if it was a temporary Hubpages glitch or not, but I updated Chrome and after restarting I was able to upload photos to hubs again.

    Yes, my pictures are taking ages to load, this is not the first time this has happened either.

    I just posted a new hub and it took me forever to get the pictures uploaded. What I did was leave the hub unpublished went somewhere else on Hubpages then came back and when I edited my unpublished hub i was then able to upload 1/2 of my pictures. Had to do this 2 times.

      Try another browser.

    What browser is everyone who's experiencing this problem using (and which version), and what platform? What error message are you getting (if any)?

    I just tried it on Safari 5.0.5, Firefox 4.0.b7, and Chrome 11.0 on a Mac, and was able to upload pictures OK.

    We have to replicate the problem on our end to troubleshoot it.

      I'm using IE 9 and had problems uploading pics earlier... first it said there was an error with one pic but my other pic worked.

      So I uploaded the exact pic to tinypic and then imported it and it worked... but then later I went to upload the other pic that had worked before and it had an error! so I had to import it too but it didn't show the thumbnail when it loaded (it was a red x) but I saved it anyway and it showed up.

      I'm writing a second hub and it's showing me the red x when I import but when i save it, it shows the red x and no pic.

    I am trying both on Chrome and FF .. I have had no problems is just the last week or so that  I am facing problems..cleared out the cookies, history etc.. and still having trouble, that I don't want to edit or write a new hub until this problem is sorted out sad

    I made a quick screenshot movie of my problems with the photos and sent the link to it to team@

    I am using OSX 10.6.7 and Safari 5.0.5

    I also tried the same thing in Firefox, but it is not working there either.

    I was used chrome. But it's been a month I am not able to create, edit and commenting through it so I changed to Firefox. I'm not sure why.

    I'm using Chrome and this morning was able to upload photos but I had to try several times.  This evening was worst, but I was able to add my photos after several intervals.

    I noticed I had this problem the other day (E.I. 7), but all it took was a couple of tries and the photos finally loaded.  I just chalked it up to the Hub Gremlins.

    I'm not having any trouble uploading pictures, but for some reason the photos I upload are not showing up in the summary on my profile, instead its a picture of me.
