    There is a problem uploading photos to a new hub.  An error is received that the photo cannot be uploaded, try a new photo.  I am not a novice at uploading photos.  I have years of experience.  The photo is a small file size and in is .jpg format.  This needs to be looked into.

      Hi Allen,
      I'm not having any problems uploading photos in Chrome.  Can you provide the browser that you are using and the OS?
      Thanks!  Robin

        The problem has been solved.  Apparently there was a glitch for a short period of time on the server.

    Sometimes I upload it to gallery and then retrieve it from there.

      Thank you for that information.  I will try that in the future.  There must have been a glitch on the server or something but I tried it after a while and it was ok.  I was able to upload my photos.

    Allen,  I am wondering if your problem with uploading is a bug with the new Javascript library 1.7 ? 

    Take a look at the forum Updating Javascript Library - new traffic graphs where Jason explains how to tell if you were roll over to it yet. Presently only 20% of Hubbers were rolled over.

    I have no idea if that may have anything to do with a bug uploading pictures. But if you find that you were rolled over to Version 1.7, report it to Jason in that other forum.

    I find that PNG are easier to upload that JPG. I had that problem some time ago so I saved all my photos as PNG and has had no problems since.

    Try updating flash an see what happens.
