can't upload jpegs anymore

i've been using the same couple of cameras and photo tools all year, and have never had trouble uploading an image to the forum.

but since june 13th, at least, i've not been able to. i get "This is not a valid image file". i'm not out of space, and the images are certainly valid, and not too big. if you search for that phrase on the forum (without the quotes) you'll find several people complaining, all since the first week of june or so.

i'm still having the problem as of yesterday, when someone else confirmed that it's been happening to them too: yet another low-key conversion

what has changed?

Maybe post this in the password thread, which the admin had responded to a couple of times. Other than that, I don't think he monitors much of anything, here.

I just tried and cant get mine to upload either. It says the format is not supported, even though its a jpg. I also tried other formats with no luck, jpeg, bmp, pdf.

I had the same problem trying to upload an avatar when I signed up. I never received a reply from the Contact Us link when I was having registration trouble, so I kind of figured bringing up any sort of software misconfiguration would be pointless. It's always a shame when these kinds of sites are used as data harvesting platforms by marketing and "vertical integration" tracking vendors. I prefer enthusiast-run sites for this reason, but sometimes they too sell out to this kind of chop shop operation once they start flashing the green. Ah well, the way of the western world, eh? Exploit Conglomerate Repeat. It's good you let them know of the problem, if it starts affecting some data metrics they'll probably fix it quicker.

hey all,

I fixed it on the back end. had to do with a security upgrade we did on our end. let me know if its working now. if it works for some and not others, do a cache and cookies reset, as it may not show up for you depending on your browser. thanks all, sorry about that.
