I had a cheap $20 camera. I would upload pix from this camera to my computer and then upload those pix onto my hubs. Recently bought the above mentioned Coolpix L105. I can upload pics from camera to computer, but not upload photos to hubs. They are all jpg files. Read something about size of the file possibly being the culprit. I am technologically challenged. How do I fix things so that I can use these photos on my hubs?
Usually photos from those cameras are huge files, so the first thing you want to do is reduce them.
Look in the software that came with the camera for a way to reduce photos for web, if no software, look for a free photo editing program on the web called Irfanview.
Open the photo you want to upload in Irfanview, and then go to File ~> Save for Web. This is a free plug-in that you'll need to install if you don't have it. Then just follow instructions on screen.
When you want to upload a picture, just follow the instructions in the photo capsule.
Edit: forgot to say, you want to reduce them to about 100Kib or less for the web.
Just added the cat - 100kib
Brightmedow, you would want to down load them on to your computer first. If not save the picture you want in your comp, open with paint, click on resize and get the pic to 20% save and upload to your hubs.. hope that helps. i use a coolpix and that is what I do Here is some healthy stuff for you
IzzyM & Sofs,

I am using Internet Explorer and the My Photos Beta will not work. I click My Photos, and it moves a bit, only to click My Photos again, although nothing happens. Since this is Beta I do not understand why you haven't left the old method up to still upload while testing the Beta version...

Like probably most of us, I have thousands of images I took myself that would be useful in hubs.Not necessarily my own, as I have more photos than I could possibly use.Instead of all of us having to go searching for images on the web we can legally use, what about have our very own Hubpages gallery...

The photo capsules will load ok with an URL but I don't seem to be able to upload pictures from my computer. Is it just me?
