Actually, I've had trouble uploading images directly recently.

As a work-around, go directly to your upload page [link], and upload images to your library, then use your library to add images to your projects.
Perhaps the problem is associated to the OP's choice of a username?
Maybe originally, but it is an issue I've encountered recently myself.
