Title: Picture loading problems
Post by: Jan Hagen on May 31, 2010, 10:11:55 PM
Hi

I seem to have problems loading pictures to my CC gallery and can't really figure out why.
The picture is a mere 401kb, with a pixel size of 806x1201. The Mac just shows it as loading - loading - forever.
The other day I got a picture up on the gallery site, but not today and other previous times.
The same goes for a Norwegian site, but no problems with the website for Digital Photographer.
Go figure? Any helpful tips?

Cheers - Jan

Jan, sorry to hear you're having problems with the gallery. :(

Does it throw up any error on screen when this happens?

Hi Mike

Nope, just keeps on ticking and ticking, trying to load the picture, but not going to the next level. Might be my computer, but then again it works on two other UK websites.

Thanks, I'll check it out and see if I can find any problems.  I upgraded the Gallery a couple of days ago, so this might be the reason. 

What I need to know now, is anyone else having the same problem?

Thanks Mike and Dave

I believe it has to be my computer or modem. Now I was suddenly able to download to the Norwegian site, after being "offline" for 2-3 weeks.
I'll figure out something.
Best wishes - Jan

Hi Jan,

If it were me, I'd be suspecting the firewall in my anti-virus/security package. I've had very similar symptoms twice in the past (with my PC, not Mac) when the Windows firewall got turned on by a windows update, so I had two running at once.
