This has been reduced to 72dpi which should be small enough to load easily and big enough to view in a post.

Nope, doesn't like it.

This is the error I get.

Yep, loads just fine on that forum. I'll try shrinking it a bit so it's not quite so small.

Thanks, both of you. The first image I tried to load was well under ten megabytes and looks perfectly OK on my blog. It rejected it because it wasn't a "valid path"... which is weird because it's a jpeg, and loads OK elsewhere.

My full sized one was too big and refused to load, as I thought it would. but I'm not "fixing" it to be smaller because of loss of qualityof the original... I'd have to rename a copy and it has already rejected a renamed and reduced size copy. I just wondered if it was the underscore and alphabetical letters which caused the problem.

It looks fine on my blog, though it is small so that people don't nick it. I'll try the small image on a different forum, just to check igf it loads OK there.

I'd show you on my blog but I'm not sure I'm allowed to link to it.

I tried to upload a jpeg, but ti told me it wasn't a valid route. It was a jpeg whicxh I had reduced in size from my original. It didn't liek the original because it's too big. I can't understand why it didn't like the smaller image. The only differences, apart from the size, were underscores and the word blog (I have previously shrunk it to put it on my blog.)

Any thoughts please?

There's a lovely Ginko at beth Chatto's which contrasts beautifully with the evergreens around it.

I was going to upload a picture of it, but the site objected to my large file as being too big, and objected to the smaller file which I've already created for my blog, saying it wasn't a valid path. Why not? Is it because it has words in the jpeg name?
