    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to upload some photos from my macbook, but the site is telling me that "it doesn't accept image type (8) this type yet." The photo is a "tiff" type so it should be acceptable on this forum and they were taken with my laptop cam, but I transfered them as files onto my "i photos" and documents"
    Thanks for your time and help everyone:smile:

    I went ahead and changed the files to JPG. files, and it still won't work. Maybe it's size specifications? I took these photos with my laptop camera and then used "ichat picture manager" to transfer them to my laptop docs and folders so that I could upload them onto the website... any help greatly appreciated
    Thanks for your time guys :smile:

    It's hard to know exactly what the problem is, but a low tech solution would be to use Apple-Shift-4 to take screenshots of the pictures.

    Seems like maybe the encoding in your JPEG is causing problems. There is a 100MB file limit so unless you have a picture bigger than that which I doubt, the problem isnt filesize.

    Maybe try encoding it to JPG , GIF or BMP?
