So I have been trying to upload a creation for a contest I'm in, but both uploaders won't let me upload anything. I think it has to do with Java or something, but I have updated/installed Java 2 times already and tried different web browsers. The "newer" uploader gives me this,

I just signed up for a Flickr account, but when I upload the pictures it doesn't give me the HTML. How do I get the pictures to HTML?
Under the "Share" tab, click "Grab the HTML/BBCode." Click that, choose "Medium 500 (350x500)" and check the HTML box. Grab that HTML and your pics will automatically be hosted from Flickr to work on MP. They show up in high-def, so your pics will be crisper than they are with the MP Uploader. The Flickr photo (when clicked on to enlarge) will automatically bring you to Flickr to view the image in a bigger view. If you REALLY want to blow up the image, click on it while you are viewing it on Flickr (or press L), the lightbox will come up. From there, in the upper right hand corner there will be a "View All Sizes" option. Click that, and you can now which picture size you want to look at to zoom in on the photo.
I always use the 350x500 setting because it is the same size as a normal photo that is uploaded using the MP uploader, it also does not cover the groups you have added the moc to here on MP like a bigger photo option would. Permalink

In that case, how would you get to post a main photo? I could use that system for the other pics, but not necessarily the main pic.

That was kind of what I was wondering too?
Unfortunately, MP will not allow you to get a main pic by hosting it to Flickr. I'm not exactly sure how you could get the main pic if Java isn't working right, try the old uploader if you can. Permalink
Not sure about the Java uploader, but the simple uploader is really struggling at the moment. Sometimes when you click the button to upload your file(s) nothing happens. Sometimes it completes but then comes up with a blank page rather than the "click to continue" page that also inserts the HTML back into your original "Add a LEGO creation page". Sometimes you get the "click to continue" page but the images are missing. Retrying, especially doing one image at a time, often results in success next time around.
When I try to use the simple uploader, I pick my picures to upload, then it loads and just gives me a blank page... But I will try to upload them one at a time. Permalink
I think overall the whole uploader needs a cleaning. I'm having to upload several times cause some pictures just won't load. It could be my Java but I know some other guys who are having similar problems. Permalink
Thats the same issue i had some 14days ago. Using firefox and Java. I reinstalled both java and firefox, also cleared all .ini files and registry. That didnt solve my problem. However my workaround for it is to use Chrome whenever i need to upload images. Not the best of solutions using two diffrent browsers. But it does the job. Permalink
Yeah, it's obvious there's some kind of problem. We've got reports of image loading issues coming in from several threads.
I'm having trouble looking into this as well, due to page loading problems. There are some people obviously still loading images without difficulty (two new pages with images this morning, for example). Unfortnately, I don't have the time at the moment (at work right now) to do too much investigating.
For what it's worth, I did send an email to Sean, telling him that we've got several claims regarding the image loading (as well as potential email problems). Hopefully, he can let us know shortly if he's found any problems on his end. Permalink
