picture files that aren't there

  technique 08:54 17 Apr 2004

i'm trying to load some picture files from my hdd on to a forum noticeboard. whenever i've loaded the files up and then preview them, the pictures are only half visible. the other half of the picture is distorted. my friend can load the same picture from their pc onto the forum so it must be something to do with my computer? the pics look fine when previewing them in My Pictures (XP) it only has a problem when trying to load them onto a forum page. any clues?

You can't but using the same pictures, your friend can?

There must be software differences between you, i.e. you are not using the same picture editing software. Compare notes with your friend and see what he does that is different, or perhaps get him round to try the same thing on your computer. There is probably a simple answer.

Is there a size restriction on the forum and has your friend resized his pictures? Are you using the .jpeg format as this will probably give you the best chance of uploading.
