Image Upload Issues?

Post by Zelandeth » 20 Nov 2018, 20:23

Anyone having issues with image uploads?

Today I've uploaded a couple and they're showing as in the below screenshot - if it works...

Is this just a local issue here or is there something odd going on?

That's not a forum fault from what I can see - as this is one image - and parts of it are fine - so must be an issue in the source file.

Odd... it's the second file I've uploaded today which has done this, and one of those was fine uploaded to another forum. Shows fine both here on my phone and the file viewed on my PC.

Will do a minor edit, resave and try again.

I see the image is in JPG format. Can you save the image in PNG format and try and upload it again?

PNG handles compression differently and is a lossless format. I would just like to see if it’s down to compression handling.

I've gone back now and edited, deleted and reuploaded the images and it seems to have sorted itself out. Not sure what was going on. I did try that earlier on with no effect.

I don't have a convenient way to save things as a PNG to hand as I'm on my phone and file format isn't one of the options I have access to sadly. Well, not strictly true...but I suspect the forum software would take exception to me tossing 40MP .RAW image files at it...and it's that or JPG.

If it happens again in future I'll do a bit more sleuthing - just this once I'll chalk up to my browser doing something downright odd.
