Hey all,
I haven't posted many cooks lately because I'm running into issues with the site and Android. When I try to post a picture I get the error message "the uploaded file is not an image as expected". Anyone else run into this? I can upload the pictures to other places, just not here. Thanks!
 
Nope and I use a samsung phone. I do get errors for pics on my pc but only to view them on my pc not to upload em here or view em here. Started a while ago after an update

JCAP JCAP what format are you saving your photos in?

I have uploaded multiple photos from my android phone in the last 24 hours with no issues.

Appears to work.
 
Can you just highlight the picture on your phone and drag it over to the thread. That's what I do with my camera.

I take my pics with my Galaxy s20fe, and copy/paste here from my google photos acct. I edit them there first, if needed, like cropping and all that.

It's not the file size and it is a jpg. I actually can post if I take a screenshot of the original picture so something strange is going on. I'm gonna go on a deep dive tomorrow. But thanks everyone!
