Can't Upload Pictures Answered

I can't upload pictures for my instructables. I am going to Detroit on Saturday, and I would like to finish my instructable before I leave so I can enter it in the USB contest. However, I cannot upload pictures. I don't get any error message. I have a mac computer. Thanks, and please help!

I have IE8 and had the same problem last week. We ran a cache cleaner (CCleaner. com. I think) and that fixed my problem with uploading the photos for some reason. Now this morning I had problems with not being able to see the Next and Previous buttons so I switched over to Firefox and now it's working again. I think the problem may be with IE8?

Thanks! You might be correct. I will switch over to another server if I have trouble in the next couple of days and see.

I too cannot upload photo's; I'm using Safari and have not had a problem before.

Does anybody know if this problem is being addressed?

Same here, let me guess, you are using safari? I had to use chrome to upload my recent instructable. That worked for me and if you dont have it it doent take long to download.

Hmm, tried firefox?

Can you say what kind of mac do you have and what software so the mods would have a better understanding to try to fix it?

I'll try firefox. I have a mac mini. Software? I don't know what they means but I can guess. Is this what software is: Mac OS X Version 10.5.8?

No problem!

And I have a mac mini too! But it is a 2006 model that can be very slow at times ~_~

Really? I recently did a ram upgrade, I suggest you don't do it, I don't think I will be able to open it up again or I will break it, but the extra ram really does a difference, I now have 2 gbs of ram instead of the 512 mbs of ram.

it is best if you get 4 Gbs or more of ram

I know that, but so far 2 gbs are plenty for me. Before I get 4 gbs I might as well buy a new computer, the processing power of this computer wouldn't even need 4 gbs.
