    I have no clue what the problem is. I just uploaded a bunch of photos to my gallery and had no problem.
    Go through and completely delete your history and cookies and start over again.

    I had the same problem - I use "Fast Stone Photo Resizer 3.1" (Freeware) to resize the photos to 1024x768 pixels - works fine.

    I use XNView, because it is the best program in the world for doing these kind of things. You can select "Resize Picture", and pick a size much larger than 1024 x 768, and it's built it Logarithm changes the size. Just change the name when you save it, so you can keep the original.

    Link = http://www.xnview.com/en/ lots of great stuff to download, all FREE! I have used this program for probably the last 8 years. :)
