Help! My broadband connection has been pretty crap over the last week or so but I have been able to add photos (sometimes with difficulty), vote, add comments (though sometimes gallery photos were slow or didn't load even if other comments etc did). Tonight I can add this topic Smile but I have tried for a couple of hours to upload a photo and can't. The uploading photo bar runs for a time and then I get a ' IE cannot display the webpage' error. I've tried on my desktop and laptop but get the same problem. Any ideas?

What does your ISP have to say about that?

You might like to test your speed here and let us know the result. Smile

Mmm just cleared my browsing history and then uploaded my pic? One more thing though, why does (and this has happened for my last few pics) it not pick up my camera model from the EXIF data which is attached to the photo? Something seems to have changed just recently.

I always use Save for Web which strips out EXIF data anyway and maximises quality for a given size of file.

Same here for the camera model not showing on uploads - the rest of the EXIF seems to be showing up - just not the camera which now fill in when uploading. I suppose I should raise a report Smile

I thought it was just 'me'! The upload form hasn't filled in the camera details for a while now (I've had to type in the camera make!)

It's probably all of us and we've all been too lazy to fill in a report Smile

You are right - never even noticed until I read this

Same Here, I generally use jpegs for uploading as its less PP work compared to a RAW for 1000 px dimension but it has never picked up my lens from a Jpeg but does as a Raw on the odd occasion I have uploaded from a Raw.
I may start uploading again using the film option and film used being Star Wars, Gone with the wind etc!!Tongue

Yes, it never gets the lens but used to get the camera body.
Just as easy to type it in the description. Saves all that hassle of it telling you you've got your own camera make and name wrong.

But then perhaps it's my odd cameras! Wink

When it was working, it got the camera make and model right every time Smile
My EXIF is not uploaded anyway, so I have enter all data manually. It is easier to type it out in the description, rather than work through all the boxes.

But then I'm just an old-fashioned guy! Smile

Yes, it's a bit tricky if you're using film! Grin
