I started a thread in the "Optics" section of the Post Exchange. But I am unable to post pictures to my thread. Every time I select a picture and send it to the server I get a pop-up stating "Invalid File". I tried to upload every single file type of image file (Jpeg, PNG, etc) and each one was an "Invalid File". Any help or suggestions.

    Are you loading the picture from an online host or trying to load from your computer?

    I have had this problem for months and have asked questions to no avail. Would be nice to hear why I can't directly load a photo from my Mac. I gave up

    OK, I have the photo up loaded in my MAC photo's. I hit the camera icon. to left of the reply box. It asked me if I wanted to upload or select from photo album. I hit upload. It took me to select from where. I went to photos found the picture and double clicked. There it was. Now lets see if it takes.

    For me, I think the issue was that I had reached the maximum amount of memory allowable per person to post pics. Once I removed pics from older posts, I was able to post new pics.
