Don't know what browser/OS you are using. I think there were problems with mac/safari.

I have IE, FF, Chrome installed so when it fails to upload in one, I try to give it a shot in the other. It is sometimes wonky with the using the old and new uploader.

Big jpeg files shouldn't be a problem. I have uploaded 12 megapixel images.

I found that selecting a bunch to upload at one time it may miss uploading one or two in the batch. The previews will not show up after it is uploaded and I would have to exit out and come back to the uploader to try once or twice more.

The system or your connection may have been slow. I usually try to give it a go after later on in the day to see if that was the problem. Select another image to try. Good luck.

HP w1858 computer, i have IE too. IE9. no problems with it till now. True. Ive tried the new and old uploaders.
My internet is extremely fast, no problems with this..
I successfully uploaded my pics for one project.. but the others for the next one im working on currently just wont upload.
Another thing is, i had previous troubles with uploading all of the pictures... including my instructable that had the pics to upload, it just happened to work after i tried it in the new and old uploader several times. Luck I guess, but still i cant get them to upload! Suggestions?? Thankyou:)

I tried the Gchrome, it worked!! :D thankyou!, even though it skipped a few pics during the uploading progress, most of my pics uploaded are better than none! Thanks for the Advice.
There's a 10MB size limit on what you can upload, but if your internet connecting is off and on, even slightly smaller stuff might give you some issues.

Like everyone else has already said, more information would be a great assistance in our ability to help you.
