Why do they have to be a small file size? does your host have a file size limit?

Hi Dave, no the site file size is 50kb but my computer can only send a file size of about 12 kb, and in basic so the photo is rubbish. is it any thing to do with my settings ?????

what program are you using to make the images/upload them? I assume the 'basic' you refer to is some sort of setting?

Hi Dave, I am using ie 6 and the basic is the jpeg setting that I have to save them to ,so they will send. The photos are all taken on a digital camera as fine jpegs. If I send them as an e-mail to someone they send fine.

Have you tried contacting the folks at the site you're trying to upload to? They might have run across the problem before.

Also, do you have any other sites you could use to try to replicate the problem? It would be helpful to know if the problem was specific to one site or not.

Another thought: Is FTP an upload option for you? I've whacked some pretty huge .mpg movies up to sites via FTP and never had them choke.

Hi DMR, I have contacted the web site that I am uploading to and they say that everyone else upload ok.
I also have the same problem when I try to up load to my geocites web page, so I guess that the problem must be my end.
I am sorry but being a helpless female I do not know what FTP is??????

FTP is the File Transfer Protocol (I think). I don't know what you've been using before, but if you've not heard of ftp then you're probably uploading via a form type interface I guess. Though I could be wrong ofcourse.
FTP capability is built into ie6 if you type in the url bar:
ftp:// instead of http://
and then follow it with the address that you want to upload to. You will need all your passwords tho.

And also some alternatives to using IE: Freeware FTP Software

Hopefully you are now no longer a helpless female!

"File Transfer Protocol" is correct, and yes- I'd guess rhiannon is currently using a Web (HTTP) form-based interface. The only problem with trying an FTP upload is that, because it is a different network service/protocol than HTTP and uses different ports than HTTP, the server to which you want to upload has to have FTP set up on its side as well. If not, it won't understand your FTP request and you won't be able to connect.

rhiannon- is it possible that although the hosting site allows uploads of up to 50K, your ISP might have a lower cap on filesizes? Just a thought...
