I have been wanting to post a recap of our wedding FOREVER but I am having endless issues when I try to upload photos to this site.
I’ve never had issues before so I don’t know what the problem is.
Whenever I try to browse in the files, it says something like “an image with this name already exists” (or something similar). That doesn’t make any sense because I’ve never sucessfully uploaded the pro images to this site, and each image is named “myname and husband’s name 001, 002, 003, etc”
Even when I try to upload 1 single pic and I don’t get the above mentioned error, I get the “loading” message FOREVER. Seriously, I’ve waited more than 5 minutes to try uploading 1 measely picture before I just gave up.
I’m wondering if the pics are too big? If that’s the case, how do I resize them? And why is it telling me that a file with that name already exists when I’ve never uploaded these images before??

I’m not sure about the file name issue, but as far as the loading, it is likely that the files are too big. Print quality images are GIGANTIC, and most sites like this have limits to what they will allow. Before you resize, just double check that you are allowed to do so with the images. There should be a statement in your contract saying whether or not you can upload online and edit images yourself. Although most photographers do release the images for use however the client pleases, not all do. If you are allowed to print on your own, you are most likely able to do whatever you want as well, but just be sure. The best way to resize is to use Adobe Bridge or Lightroom, both of which cost money. I honestly don’t know where else you can resize images beside those two because I always use them in my work. Hope you can work it out and looking forward to seeing your pictures!

You can use TinyPic or Photobucket to resize, but honestly I just copied and pasted. It’s MUCH easier! 🙂

You can resize here: http://www.picresize.com/
As for the “an image with this name already exists”, when you upload a picture from computer, the FILE NAME space gets filled automatically with the “image” name.
You have to change this to “imageasdasjda” or whatever, so it doesn’t have the same name. It will not be filled with the name you have for it in your PC.

I upload to photobucket and paste the URL in the image imbed window.
