My profile picture is stuck at one picture and I can't change it. Also I've edited my profile and when I view it not logged in, none of the things I edited are there. What do I do?

Ok, so I'm trying to upload images that are JPEG's and The simple uploader doesn't want to use said JPEG's and I can't upload pictures because MOCpages say that I need JPEG's, PNG's, etc. even though that's the type of photo I'm trying to upload :P

JPEG photos work on the fancy uploader. There is a conversation with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to use the fancy uploader in this group. It's worked for me.

I've had the same problem too, my problem is I tried to upload JPG images to the simple uploader and they don't work, but if I upload a different picture from the same camera and is a JPG and it works.

If using the simple uploader, upload in batches of four pics ( or less ) plus main pic, or 5 pics or less without main pic

I'm having the same problem that's in the opening post, where my buddy icon won't change from that black square, no matter what I try. Is it a glitch, or am I doing something wrong?

Thank you! And to you, as well!

So, as you can see, I didn't have any trouble changing up my icon. I wanted to see if it was a system-wide problem - apparently it's not. If it was, I could've checked in with Sean about a potential glitch. But, under the circumstances all I can do is remind folks to submit images that are in jpeg form and aproximately 180 x 180 psi. When I did that, the icon function worked properly.

If you can't see the right sidebar, try disabling AdBlock. It tends to hide unfortunate parts of pages.

I uploaded a new MOC, but the pictures are sideways. I realized that I took them with the camera tilted, but is there any way to rotate the pics? Thanks for any help. http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/434195

You have to reupload the ones that did not come out correctly. In the newer uploader, I think you can actually rotate the images if they appear to be sideways. I'm not entirely sure since I haven't uploaded anything in half a year, but I also never really had this problem except for one image and I never cared because the post was never that good to begin with.

Unfortunately, MOCpages doesn't have the capacity to rotate images. I'd recommend orienting/rotating them before you load them to MOCpages.

Fancy uploader can.

Ah, good to know. I've never been able to get it to work for me.

To be honest I haven't tried that hard, though. Sean set it up a few years ago, I think I might have messed with it for a few minutes, and then reverted to the original uploader when I couldn't get it to work for me. Haven't had the need for anything else since. I'm still living in the technological equivalent of the Jurassic. (And MOCpages is in the Cretaceous!)

The fancy uploader relies on java which is no longer supported by most browsers. A workaround is to install an older version of firefox or google chrome (if you can find a safe .exe instalation file). I'm currently using firefox 42 and both uploaders work for me.

Ok, as I understand it sometimes there is a delay on updating the image, but usually that resolves itself in 24hrs, I'm guessing since you first raised this weeks ago there is some other issue.

Checklist:

the image you are using is the correct format? (JPG, PNG, or GIF)
the image you are using is the correct size?


I have to admit I've not found in the guide the exact specs but files no larger than 100mb are ok.

you will need to resize pictures BEFORE you upload them, most cameras and imaging software can be used to do this, windows xp and higher CAN do this from the file management screen, BUT the resolution compression is not great.

one thing you could try is removing the buddy icon and uploading one you have used before which did work. if this still shows black, you know the issue is definitely with your account and not the image.

That's a good idea - should tell us a lot. Just FYI, Sean recommended (many moons ago, now) for buddy icons to use images around 80 x 80, and of course, jpeg.
