I have a CD with scans of 19 pages of pictures from a previous reunion. How should/can I load that on our site? I tried the Gallery but the scans won't load. I tried creating a new page and loading them there, but that doesn't work. Ideas? Thanks. Barbara

Have you moved the images from the CD to your hard drive? Then upload from the hard drive.

Yes, I have them on my computer and I browse and select them, but they won't upload. I just get a message that it's waiting for Are they too big? How long do I wait? I would love to put them in a Gallery.

Hi Barbara,

They may be timing out if they are too large. Microsoft has some built in resize tools you can use to resize a group of images

Nope, doesn't work. When I go into the folder, first of all it doesn't give me the option of thumbnails. Is that the same as medium icons, which I see as an option at the top (they look like thumbnails)? Second, there is no resize function that I can see, not by right clicking or along the tool bar at the top. I am using Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium. This is true whether I open it in Photo gallery or just from my Picture files. Help!

I don't see the "resize" option here either. When you right clcik on one of the photos and click on Properties, how big is it?

Note that Jessica's link says "Applies to Windows XP" Shocked

I just used my "test" gallery and it uploaded 3072 x 2304 (5MB) images just fine. So that image size is not an issue - but I don't know the size of Barbara's "scans".

If you tell us the dimensions and file size Barbara we can test to see what happens to isolate the issue better.

(As a footnote: There's no requirement to move images from a CD to HD to do an upload - assuming that it meets the criteria.)

Got it! Found the resize button on Photo Gallery and have reduced each file from 21 MB to 990 KB and it uploads fine now. Thanks for your help.
