Photo Uploading Requirements

The Photo Manager requires users to have Java installed and enabled for their internet browser.  JavaScript must also be enabled. 
*Please note that Java and Javascript are two separate and independent programming languages. Having one enabled does NOT imply the other is enabled.*

There is a simple test to determine if Java is installed. Visit http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp and click "Verify Java Version".

If you do not have Java installed on your computer, visit http://www.java.com/en/download to download.

  • Question: What file types can be uploaded using the photo uploader?
  • Answer: Pictures must be in a .jpeg or .jpg file format. Any other format (.png, .bmp, raw) will not be accepted by the photo uploader. If needed, you will have to convert your files using a third party program.
 
  • Question: What are the correct steps for uploading photos once I see the Photo Uploader?
  • Answer: First, click the "Add Files" button to add photos to your queue. (Alternative Method: You can also drag and drop files from your desktop or other folder on your computer into the Photo Uploader)  Once all photos you want uploaded are in your queue, click the "Start Upload" button to begin the upload.  Note that you may be restricted on the number of photos you can upload depending on the page (for example, you can only upload one profile photo).

    Answer: Your browser may still have the old photos in it's cache. Try forcing a browser refresh to see the new photos.
    .
  • Question: I am able to add photos to the uploader with the "Add" button, but when I click the "Upload" button I get an "Error Status Code 500" message.
    Answer: The most common reason for this issue is there was an interuption in your network connection and the file did not upload successfully.  However, if you always get an error 500 when trying to upload photos, please contact us to help resolve this issue.
    .
  • Question: How do I view my images as thumbnails when adding them to the upload box.
    Answer: At this time, the current version of the uploader does not have this option. As a workaround, the uploader does support drag and drop.  If you open your file manager window (for example, Windows Explorer) and then go to the folder where your photos reside, select View as thumbnails from the appropriate menu, then drag the photos you want into the photo manager.
     
  • Question: I am getting a security warning when I go to upload photos.
    Answer:  The first time you upload photos with the most current Photo Uploader, you may get a security warning confirming that you want to run the applet.  You can avoid this warning by checking the "Always trust content from this publisher" and then click "Run".  This warning also sometimes happens when the certificate is confirmed but has expired.  For the exact security warning, see this screenshot which also tells you exactly what to do.
 
  • Question: Why are my photos sideways?
    Answer:  We have found that some photos taken with a cell phone or other mobile device will upload photos sideways. This is an issue with the way cell phones and other smart devices orient photos when taking pictures. Using a real camera will always yield the best quality photos, however if you experience this issue with cell phone pictures, we suggest downloading the pictures to your camera first and making sure the orientation is correct.
