I'm having trouble with Photo Upload
Our system only accepts JPG file formats. We resize all photos when they are uploaded and our system can not resize any other format.

If you have uploaded a photo and are unable to view it, this could be happening for a number of reasons.

Usually this is caused by the photo image containing some corrupt data in its header. The header is read by our system to determine its file type. If our system cannot determine the file type from the header information, the file upload is aborted. This is a security measure.

We recommend that you try one of the following to remedy the problem

  • Open the photo in Photoshop or another photo editing program and re-save it
  • Open the photo in Photoshop or another photo editing program, create a new blank image of the same size, and copy the existing photo into the blank image
  • Use this online system to resize your photo (www.resize2mail.com)
Once you have done this, try uploading your photo again. If you still have trouble, please contact us.
