Picture removed without my consent.

A picture was removed without my consent or knowledge. There ws a comment that the picture was removed because of obnoxious comments.   There was nothing wrong with the picture. Now I can not edit the instructable as it will not save or update. Guess I will not be renewing.

Change the header picture for a Group [SOLVED]

Hello, Can anyone tell me how to change the header picture on our Group page? We have moved and we want to put a picture of the new location up. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Picture comments

Last time I added pictures to an 'ible I'm still writing, I put comments on the pictures, but the yellow boxes don't stay in the same place if I comment more than one picture - every time I look back at what I've done, the boxes have moved! Saving the instructable is unpredictable in terms of where the comment boxes will end up.

Instructables profile picture spreading across all my profiles EVERYWHERE

Hi, I have uploaded a profile picture to Instructables that is a bit humorous.  However, now this picture is spreading across all of my accounts on the internet!  I know that the ONLY site to which I uploaded this picture is Instructables.  The picture was appropriate for Instructables but is inappropriate for many of my other accounts. Somehow, my image has "escaped" and is being automatically captured by other websites. I am attempting to stop this profile picture from spreading any further. Can you PLEASE let me know how this picture could be spreading across all of my accounts!? Thanks in advance, Nathan.

how can I rotate a picture taken with my iphone?

Hi, I already had this problem before, and I have no idea how to solve it - I took this picture with my iphone. It rotates the picture automatically on the phone, but when I try to upload it to the website it's not rotated. When I try to rotate it again before uploading it doesn't work either.  Thanks! Merav

Picture bug!!!Very annonying! it happens alot!

There is this bug when people tag outside of the picture and you cant see the other pictures. I guess you can reproduce the bug. All I did to get the bug is go on the instructable. I usually refresh and just dont go on the picture. Before the bug I browse on instructables. My computer is a windows 7 computer. I use Google chrome beta , but I tried on other browsers and experienced the same thing. It also happens on my friends house.

100% uploaded picture is no seen

I found this problem during a step by step Instructables: 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?

What's a better background for pictures?

What does every body think about different background colors for picture taking? I made up a black one but I'm thinking about a white / cream one as well. Pictures are of a bottle with a jug knot tied (great instructable, look it up) while the other is from jessyratfink's Instructable "Sew a Where Things are Hat + Pattern!" with a white backdrop. What do you prefer? By the way, the black back drop is mine, I have it hung up on a curtain rod with a stool in front with the cloth draping over, then with the item placed on top. Still new at photography but I think it's an ok picture.

Unsymmetrical Picture Frame

So I was given these really cool, very colorful tree bark paintings that I cannot wait to get up on the walls!  They have lots of funky neon colors and designs with edges that aren't even which gives them a lot of character!  The only thing though I don't want to put holes in them and stick them on the wall like that.  I bought a regular picture frame just to see how it would look.  Doesn't really work.  There's space between the edge of the picture and the picture frame and just takes away the natural feel to it.  I've been wanting to make picture frames out of sticks or something but just can't figure out how to make them "trap" the picture.  Not really looking to have glass in front of it either.  Any wear on them would just make them look more natural.  Maybe I should seal them so they don't fade if I don't want glass in front of it.... Hmm.... Anywho, if anyone has any suggestions, they are all greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

Picture Problem

Hey, I'm trying to make my 2nd instructable but i am having a HUGE picture problem. I loaded all my pics into my library, and when i click and drag them into the image slot, they stay there. I can even write captions for them. The problem comes, when i want to save. I have tried saving and previewing, and saving and going to the next step. It seems that my images get deleted every time i go to a different page. Please help

Picture Bug

When I try to click on a photo after the first people provide to show the steps, it continues to show the first photo and none of the ones I click. It's almost like a broken link but it has to do with a setting on my computer and have tried to fix it but can't figure it out. I'm running a windows 7 machine and Firefox 9.0.1.

Inserting a picture into an instructable in progress make it freeze

I've written quite  few instructables and I'd never run into this problem. Whenever I uploaded a certain picture into my latest instructable, the whole thing would freeze. I couldn't delete the picture, save the work in progress, create or delete steps or do anything! I thought my file must be corrupt and recreated the photo but I continued to have the same problem regardless of what browser I was using (Firefox or Safari). I can't delete the uploaded pictures from my library either because they are "in use" by unfinished instructables I can't change, publish or delete. Finally I tried to change the file name of my picture. It's original name was quite long, so I changed it to muff.jpeg. This solution worked! But I still had to recreate a new instructable from scratch. Even if this is just a parameter which all users need to be aware of when uploading their files I think it could be improved on the website end... it should not be possible to upload pictures unless their filenames are compatible with the site. Now I've no idea how I'll get rid of those useless draft instructables, and the photos with the bad file names in my library....

Picture uploaded to title page keeps being removed after about 3 days

I have had an instructable up for about a year here: The picture I upload and attach to the title page keeps working for about 3 days then is removed. Consequently my Instructable has no title page picture. I keep re attaching the image and it works OK for about 3 days then is automatically removed. It is my photograph, not taken from anyone elses website so not a copyright issue. What is the problem? I have just reattached the image again now but within 3 days it will have gone again. Best wishes Xenon John

Having Trouble adding picture notes

I'm working on my first instructable, and I'm having trouble adding notes to one particular image. It seems that no matter what I try, I can't get any more than 3 notes saved. I can add them, but when I save and preview, they do not show up. I've tried to do it on two different computers with the same results.

Help! Need to make an **easy** picture frame...

Hey y'all! So I need a bit of help here. I just finished this puzzle and I want to frame it (something I've never done before). I've looked around here and there aren't any frames that would fit a 20.5 inch X 28.5 inch puzzle. I refuse to pay the outrageous costs of custom framing, so unless something magically pops up, I will be building a frame for it. Building frames, building anything for that matter, is not my fortay and I would appreciate any and all tips y'all can provide. Thanks!!

"Please add more images before publishing!"???

Ok, colour me confused.  I have a 3 step 'ible, it has two pics and one video and I get the following when I try to publish: Please add more images before publishing! Have you taken photographs of each step for your Instructable? Clear well taken photos are the most important part of your Instructable. Please make sure you have included all of your images prior to publishing your Instructable. Submissions without necessary photos will not be published. Am I missing something? This is my 'ible url, not sure how useful it is:

What is the correct picture size ?

Hi, just wondering what is the correct picture size for Instructables ? I'm uploading 700 x 519 pix pictures.  Also, since all my pictures on Instructables look wrinkled, I was wondering if it's possible to choose to show pictures in static means ( simply list all pictures in line, so visitors can scroll down instead of click for the next picture ). Static pictures may provide much better image quality. -- My poor suggestion.

How did you wind up with your current picture?

For example, I got my avatar by deciding to do something to the normal "no picture" picture. So I used GIMP to add a pasted picture of fire in another layer, did some strategic cutting, then used the Pen set on fade to add shadow behind our poor immolated bemowhawk'd "no picture" fellow. What did you do to arrive at yours?

Clicked pictures not displaying

I've been finding that in some instructables some of the pictures won't accept a click and display. I'm starting to think that this is due to having the same picture more than once in a single step, like in this one (2nd and 17th picture in the intro). I think I had seen this problem with Firefox 2 and definitely see it with FF3. This doesn't affect only the doubled image either, other images are bothered by this bug.

profile images

(sunday june 13, 2010. 23:46 pst) just happened to notice that if you update your profile picture it removes all previous viewable pictures (shown as thumbnails under your main profile pic) and replaces it with the most current selected. not sure if this is intended. I kind of liked seeing older pictures, but can see how this way is cleaner too.

Hard to upload pictures to Ible

When I make a step by step Ible in the new editor, it takes me an enormous amount of time to upload the pictures (like a whole day!). A lot of uploads will "hang" and must be aborted for the uploader to continue with the next picture. When I upload them again they might work that time or not. First I thought it was because I always upload huge pictures, but when I made the pictures smaller (less then 500 kb) the problem still occurs.  After many tries, I managed to get them all uploaded, but it doesn't really invite me to do a new Ible. Making the Ible takes more time than doing the project this way. In the old editor you could write the Ible while the pictures where uploading. In the new one you can just wait. It would be great if the uploading could happen in the background again. Writing the text takes me some time, because English is not my first language. I am using a Mac with Lion and the newest version of Safari. This problem occurred with the writing of my last couple of Ibles. In my last Ible was especially picture DSC06149 a real adventure to get uploaded.

Making a digital picture frame without a working motherboard :-( iBook G4 died a couple of months ago. At first, We Fix Macs thought it was a (known) logic board problem, but it turns out the motherboard is dead. I've recovered my hard drive, and have the carcass at home. Everything works fine except that it won't boot, or won't stay running once booted.Is there a reasonably inexpensive way to hook up an image player (like an MP3 or other thumb-drive type of thing) directly to an LCD display? Most of the digital photo-frame projects involve restructuring the components of a functioning laptop.I'm not about to try to get this done in time for Christmas, but for my wife's birthday (March) it'd be kind of cool.

No uploaded pictures show up in the library

Update:      I just tried to upload the same photo with my friend's account and everything worked just fine. Now I'm certain that there is something wrong with my account.  Can any Admin here check my account out? I have backed up all the Draft instructable and photos so feel free to cancel or delete them if that's necessary to make my account work. Thank!!!! Ps:  Here is what I think the problem is. The first time I uploaded photo (while writing an instructable), I either uploaded too many photo (although was just around 10), or I didn't wait long enough after the uploaded for the system to show the "complete" message (I however did wait until all the uploaded bar ran till 100%) before I processed to check the photos up in my library.  Not sure if this is a bug or just I run too fast and confused the instructable Robot :p ======================================================================================================== Hi, I was able to upload a few .jpg picture by both new and old uploader, but when ever I open up image library, the loading circle just keep rolling and rolling.  I waited 2 days just in case the server need time to process and tried both chrome IE, and clear cookies on both, still no luck. Anyhing else I should try or I missed? Thanks, added 5/17: I'm using Windows7 x86 system with x86 version of the browsers. However I have both version of flash installed.
