That's pretty much it. What size are your images? Exactly what is happening when you say they are "not going through"? I've had trouble posting large images before. Try resizing your pics and trying again.

Moving this to MS Upgrades.

thanks for the prompt response guys
I was doing what you have posted tristan and i had a bit of a feeling it could be the size 
of the images as well they were taken from an SLR camera which is pretty big, I shall reduce the pictures and will try again.
Thanks again...

If you're using a PC you can easily resize multiple images using outlook. Do you know how?

This is how I do it. I use Windows XP and Outlook, not Outlook express.

Open your folder with the pics you want to resize
Go to tools/folder options/show common tasks in folders and make sure its selected
Create a new folder within that folder called "resized"
Select the images you want to resize by holding down ctrl and clicking each one
Over on the left of the screen in the common tasks area you will see "email these images", click it
Select yes when it asks you if you want to resize
An email opens with the resized images attached
Right click one of those images and choose "select all"
Drag them into your newly created "resized" folder
Upload to the forum. Happy days.

Ha! I reckon I've found the problem. Picture size, not kb but pixels.

I've been trying to get that damn Zaku Ground set up and it kept bombing out so I tried doing some tests with other pictures and they all worked but as soon as I put the Zaku box top in Hasta La Vista Baby. Then I noticed that the box top pic was slightly larger in vertical pixies than the other. So I reduced it bit by by bit and as soon as it got 1800 it worked.

Another forum I'm on has the same problem. It doesn't really restrict picture file size but it won't allow pictures over a certain pixel size  ::) but no where does it tell you what the size is, you have to take pot luck.

I found out that I had a problem using flickr as a reference point to upload images, but then when I changed to photobucket the image was able to come up!

It would appear that there is also a restriction on pixel width as well. I was trying to load some images in the R&D section and one was over 3200 in width and it kept failing. Once the image was reduced to 3200 wide it loaded just fine.

So it seems the max size to load an image to the forum is 3200x1800.

There is no need to load pictures over about 1200x900 as most screens cannot display anything bigger without having to scroll due to the forum window size.
