I have been trying to upload photos for a new project for an hour. Tried directly from the phone, then copied to the computer and tried uploading from it.

Either way, when I select a photo and the thumbnail shows in the form, and hit “Upload File,” I get a message that I must “select a file first.”

Can anyone tell me what this means – I have already selected a file and the thumbnail shows.

Something smells fishy? What thumbnail image shows where?

Are you following the ‘How to insert pictures’ process outlined by Cricket?
https://www.lumberjocks.com/CricketW/blog/114193

It seems like maybe you are not properly selecting a file as outlined in steps 2 &3?

Have seen LJ have issues with image file name containing unusual/illegal characters. Might help to make sure your file name does not contain any punctuation or spaces?

Despite forum software having automatic image size reduction capability, LJ does have picture size limitations. If the file is too large, you should see an error. If a selected file is not uploading, then try another, or might need to use photo editor to crop pictures smaller.

Hope this helps.

Carey – post this in the main forum: not too many people see things if it is in a blog.
plus – Admin has a better chance of seeing it too.

After you select your picture are you getting the numbers (file name) next to the “Choose File” box?
