Upload Help

Hi Everyone, I'm kinda new here at Instructables, and am trying to put up my first Instructable, but I have been encountering a problem with uploading pictures. I add all the pictures I need from my computer, so that they're in a list above the upload button, so then I click the upload button and nothing happens. I thought that maybe the website had somehow uploaded them without me knowing, but whenever I come back to my Library they aren't there. Yes, I've tried tagging them, and even uploading them to photobucket so I could use the internet upload function to see if that worked and it still didn't. I have a feeling there might be something simple that I'm not seeing or getting. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Upload Fault

I can not upload excel files to my instructible. I have tried 20 or more times, closed the browser and repeated, tried another browser, renamed the files but nothing seems to work. I have had this problem before and sometimes after about 2 hours of frustration, the files suddenly upload correctly. This is extremely annoying. Can anything be done to fix this fault ?

unable to upload

Newbie I tried many times last night to upload pictures to my library and had no luck. Watched a youtube video on the subject, but still no luck. Are there an instructable to show me what I am doing wrong? I am using a newer Mac. Are the pictures in the wrong format I was able to choose files . when I hit upload, nothing seemed to happen and the library was empty. The text I entered vanished into the unknown.

Uploading Files?

When making my step-by-step "Homemade Hedbanz Game" Instructable, I tried uploading my Microsoft Word files the same way I uploaded my pictures. They would say they downloaded 100% but I could never find them in my uploaded gallery, nor in my Instructable (I checked the "add to this step" box). I can't figure out how to do it, and I am scared my contest entries won't win because of it (I entered it into the Craft Contest and the Toy Contest). Please help!!

Trouble uploading files

Having difficulty uploading files.  I've selected the files and pressed the upload button.  The percentage uploaded increases to 100% but the files stay on the upload list with a status of 100%.  Files are not attached to the step nor do they appear under "your library".  I'm using Firefox 14.0.1.  I've also tried it on Chrome 20.0.1132.57.  Had this problem this morning (Pacific time) and this evening.  This morning I was on a different local network than this evening - so not a network problem.

100% uploaded picture is no seen

I found this problem during a step by step Instructables: https://www.instructables.com/id/Khandvi-a-snack-from-Gujarat/ I uploaded all pictures in one batch. When I got to step 1 of the Instructables, I found one of pictures was not in the library. I clicked on "upload" tab, it showed 100% uploaded but it didn't show up in the library or the instructables, nor the specific step. I refreshed browser. It didn't help.  I tried "select files", "upload" a few times, it didn't help. I logged out my account, logged in and tried the above tricks, still didn't work. What's problem? How to fix it? How to add that picture to the step?

Can't add images to forum comments

I know there is a post about someone being unable to post pics in ible comments, but I am also having the same problem on the forum. I thought I'd start a new thread with specific problems I am having and what I have tried. If I click the add images button I get a box that says Add Images and Files from your Library, but does not show the images already in my library. Under that, I have three options 1)upload, 2) your library and 3)flickr import. 1)If I choose the upload button, I get a button that says Choose Files. When I choose a file it does upload and appears in the box and when I preview my comment, I can see the text and the picture yet when I hit post comment, the forum topic reloads without my comment. (I had thought it might be a delay thing, but my original attempt was made almost a week ago and still hasn’t appeared) If I choose the old uploader from the upload option, I get the file loading image spinning for a few seconds, then it just disappears but without the image being uploaded. – Actually it does upload the image but just does not display it on this page. When I go to my library from the me page, I find countless copies of the same image that I was trying to add. 2)your library – if I choose this option nothing changes. There are no images displayed even though I do have images in my library. 3) flickr import. Again nothing changes when I select this option. I thought that maybe the problem was with Firefox –(I have the latest Firefox running on Windows Vista) so I tried using Internet Explorer. Using IE, when I click add images, I get the image loading graphic and it says loading your library, but nothing else happens, the graphic just spins and spins and spins!

I have a computer and it keeps uploading something to the internet and I have no idea what it is uploading?

I just set up a small network, and the computer that is connected to the internet that supplies the internet to the other computers keeps uploading something and I have no idea what it is uploading. There is nothing running on the computer that should be accessing the internet so I am confused. It's not causing any big problems to the network, except if I leave the computer connected to the internet, my internet  usage will slowly get used up.

Usability - uploading images

Hey Been a while since I made an Instructable. I browsed, picked several images to upload. Decided I wasn't going to add tags. I couldn't figure out how to actually upload the images. Finally I noticed the "upload" button next to the tags, which I think I'd thought was to save the tags (yes even though it says Upload). I realize you're testing a new uploader so maybe this is moot but I think moving the Upload button to the far right might help. Or maybe I'm the only one having this problem!
