    When you say you can't download them, I guess you mean you can't send (send) them into the advert?

    What internet browser are you using? (Internet Explorer / Firefox ?)

    How large are the files? (In pixels and MB)

    Regards,

    Rob.

    That was quick!!

    I'm using IE7, I'm not sure of the file size or pixels. Is there a limit on what size you can upload? If so do you know what it is??

    Thanks

    Hiya JPO,

    IE7 in theory should be fine but I've not used that myself to post ads. So long as you don't see an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle at the bottom of the IE window warning of script errors it should be OK. If you have any security software 'plugged-in' to IE it might be worth an attempt with these disabled if all else fails as they might block the upload. It's unlikely though so only try that as a last ditch effort.

    One thing I would say is that sometimes I've found that the software on the site side sometimes struggles to resize the images if you're trying to upload particularly big ones. You might want to try again having manualy resized the images a bit first. You can do this in applications like Paint (use the stretch/skew option) or with something like IrfanView (www.irfanview.com). If you reduce them down to about 800x600 the site should manage the rest.

    Have you been getting any error messages at all?

    Regards,

    Rob

    I can't afford your car haha.

    If it's a toss up between IS-F and RS4, I'd go for the RS4 everytime! 4WD is more practical in the UK, unless you really do fancy RWD, the IS-F has had some good reviews though, but it's price will drop like a stone once you get your hands on it.
