I'm trying to host a document from my desktop, when I use Imageshack after trying to upload it for a few minutes, it kicks me out, I've also tried Photobucket, which comes up with failed.

Any idea's please?

What is the file type and size you are trying to upload?

Hello recap

I'm in beginners beacuse I've not that much knowledge, but it's a follow on from this thread:

It's a standard A4 letter that I've scanned amended some details and saved it to my desktop.

If you just hover your cursor over the file on the desktop it should show you the file type (eg JPEG Image) and the size (eg 257KB)

Your file type must be one of the following

jpg, jpeg, png, gif, bmp, tif, tiff

If the file is a text or document or is too big it won't work. you will need to convert it to a picture file as above.

Irfanview from
click here
will convert text (.txt) files to picture files, but not .doc files

When I hover the pointer over it this is what it says,
Dimensions 1700 x 2338
type- bitmap image
size 11.3MB

it don't look like it's in the list above,

Bitmap is BMP as in BT's list - but it's a large file for an A4 letter (11.3MB)

ImageShack has a maximum upload size of 1.5MB so you're well over that. I don't know about Photobucket but it is probably similar. I would look at starting with a new scan re your previous thread

Hi Sea Urchin

When I've scanned before using paint, it's been OK, I think it may be because on this one time the text is so huge, which is why it's a large file.

The document is a normal letter size, is than an A4?

What is the size of the file if you save it as a JPEG?
File > Save As > then select from the Save as type pulldown

Imageshack looks to have a 1.5 Mb limit

  Molly_Don 14:51 24 Nov 2008

I followed what you said, and it's still showing as 11.3MB
