I forgot the image.

Attempt to upload from desktop - A photo I could not upload on my laptop. This is my demo table today, giving away Proctor and Gamble product samples.

How many of you have trouble uploading images? How about "How many of you have trouble with your memory?" I started a discussion about trouble uploading images on my laptop. I told everyone if there was no image my latest attempt failed. Then I forgot to even try. I really will attempt this time.

I find mylot is confusing. When you want to add an image to your comment, what do you do first? I believe you upload the image first - but why is the "post response" button there? If you press that, the image is lost! Wouldn't it be easier just to have one button which uploads everything? This is why I don't post many images

I did not post many images even when I could because it was a bit complicated. However I have been in such a drought about pictures that I was thrilled when this worked. I have another discussion with three or four pictures up. It is kind of sad when I see a MyLot friend that others miss and I cannot post his picture.

Dear Well you got the picture right this time,good job!Sometimes we all have a bit of trouble on things that we do everyday sometimes these things just need a little practice.After you upload so many photos you will get the hang of it.Just keep trying!it can also b the kind of laptop you use.Sometime net books have trouble uploading so that might be the case.

It is a full size laptop. I am wondering if I have something enabled that blocks it, because I have been able to put several pictures up tonight.

Oh, gifts, do not get lost. I am happy to be able to get pictures up now. I will do it much more often.

Wow, am I really here and able to post again??? Actually there are times when I have trouble uploading pictures here and usually it is one of two things: 1. the size is too big or 2. Mylot has a glitch. In this case, I wonder if it was a glitch?

Curtis Allen and Grandma Heather the day he was bo - The hospitals have very liberal visiting policies. I got to visit with Curtis when he was about eight hours old.
I have completely removed my Swagbucks toolbar and I have not had any connectivity issues. This has been going on almost two years, I think it was me. I have not tried on my laptop yet, though, since removing the toolbar. I was able to post pictures to another site that I had not been able to, so I think that is the solution. Maybe I will find you a picture. By the way, if I put up a picture of me, I will warn you I still did not have the henna quite right. I redid my hair Saturday and I am really pleased. Now I just need it trimmed. Be sure to check out my other discussions that have pictures on them.

Oh good, I am sure you will love the indigo, because though I love red hair, I am not a red head and prefer my more natural color. You have to share a picture after you use the indigo.

I quite often have trouble uploading images here. It is a common problem with this site. I never have any where near the same amount of trouble uploading images to other sites. It is a process that I am quite familiar with and I always reduce the size of the image so that it should upload easily, but for some reason, I have trouble here on myLot. I have pretty much given up on it as it is a waste of time.

Cutting up cantaloupe - My three year old granddaughter is a real helper bug. We cut up cantaloupe, watermelon and cucumbers this time.
I have discovered after doing some on my desktop that the actual problem is a toolbar for another site. I removed it from my laptop and I can upload pictures now. I just had a problem, but it was because I had not tagged it. Did you know they will not load if you do not tag?

I was not aware that it would not work if you did not tag. I always tag all photos and posts anyway. Hmm, a toolbar! Well I have three on my computer!

To my shame,so far I haven't uploaded imagine to any website.Last time I wanted to change my mylot avatar ,tried it again and again on my computer,It didn't work.A mylotter helped me to do it later.I haven't made a systematic study of computer,I learn to play it by trial and error or consult people who are good at computer.

Yes, I just learn by doing. Usually it does not matter to me much about the images, but I do want to share some of the pictures of our friend Grandpa Bob.

I have been on here for over four years. Back when I was first on here I could upload and everything is fine. But over the last three years I haven't been able to. SOmeone told me it takes a long time to upload and so I guess I need to try again and be patient. I haven't done that yet.

It is not any worse than Gather, but for me it just says "connection reset" and then I lose the photo and the post as well. At one time a friend said I needed to uninstall and reinstall my swagbucks toolbar, and that helped briefly with the "connection reset" thing, but it is back again.

A family of five - This is the day Curtis was born. In the hospital room when he was about seven hours old.
I uninstalled swagbucks tool bar on my laptop. It will make it awkward to do some of the earning, but I still have a search bar at the top of my page. I find that I can now upload pictures even from my laptop. I have done it twice in this discussion so far. Mylot used to have a limit on how many pictures you can put up in a day, so I am going to put one more up here, then be done for a while. I have to go to my job for a while today.

Glad you got it loaded. Don't you just hate when you have to have something like that turned in for a job or something equally important and your electronic equipment just decides not to cooperate??? My printer does this to me often... When I need to print something important it bails on me for some reason. If I am just printing a recipe or something that is not necessary it will work wonderfully but try to print something that I really NEED and no go! UGGG~~

More and more you have to have a connection to work in any way. Especially the upload. The other thing that happened sometime this month is that the computer has changed its mind about how I need to do attachments, and failed to tell me. I had to find it on a search.

That is so very true today if you are working outside of a regular brick and mortar establishment. It is great to have the technology at home but sometimes I wish the IT personnel went with it. LOL!

I have done that before. I think it was a link that I was missing though. I started these whole discussions based on a video or a link and then post without adding it. I felt terrible..LOL. Once I added it to the first responder that was going "where the heck is the link" and then once I started a discussion named missing link..LOL.

Yeah, I remembered right after I hit "post comment". There were some other things I forgot last night related to another website.

Well, it has been a while since I have even tried to upload an image from my Computer on here. I would have to download them off my Phone, etc. or send them to my Email to be added on here first to my Computer. Most of the time instead I just place them on Facebook so I guess if I wanted too I could go steal them from there as well, but photos are always a Great thing to share.

It depends on the photo, but like the pictures from visiting Grandpa Bob would be fun to have up. He shares some on facebook, but everyone here is not on facebook. As busy as you are I can understand not wanting the extra steps.

On the laptop it keeps telling me my connection was reset, and it is just on MyLot. I wonder if my adblocker on the laptop also blocks me from sending pictures to MyLot.

It works on the desktop. It works most of the time on Gather on the laptop, but never on MyLot. I do not think it is MyLot's fault there either, but I am just going to have to remember to load everything here at the desktop.

Rolling around on the floor, laughing my azz off. I was one of those people who respoded. Oh well, more pennies for you, and more pennies for me. I need everything I can get, so I can go to NEW YORK CITY in August with my friend Kathy! Oh well, it worked this tme, so I think your experiment was a success. As for the forgetfull thing, we all do that. Hubby: Damn coffee pot. Filter? Water? Beans? Check, check, check. Beans have been ground, but it won't friggen...wat a minute! Forgot to plug it in! haha And then last night on an episode of That 70\s Show, Red and Kitty were going to play with their new Betamax VCR, and record Roots. Red was being a typical man, and wasn't going to watch it when it was on, but rather 2 hours later when it recorded. Kitty unwillingly went along with it. Then in two hours, Red went to play the tape, and realized that the tape was sitting in its case on the other side of the room. LOL Boy, was Kitty ever mad at him!!!!!!! hahahahahahahahaha So people do stuff like that, in real life, and in fiction. Ever start surfing on line, decide to do something, open a new tap, and by the time you've opened the tab, you've forgotten why? I do that all the friggen time!! Very annoying.

The reason it is so funny is because we are all human. I got the coffee pot ready, turned it on, ran to the bathroom, ooops, no carafe to catch the coffee. It has a spring that lets you get a cup and stops the flow, well while I was in the bathroom the basket overflowed and I had grounds all over the coffee center. Yes. Make lots of pennies, me too. I have lots of ways to spend money.
