I am still unable to upload to my gallery but on trying yet again I actually got to the second page where you can add captions. It also loaded the exact same photos from a previous attempt! But it wouldn't go to the next step and upload those photos to my gallery. I tried a few times, then out of frustration I added a title to those photos and when I clicked on "process" I got a different message:
"KitMaker Gallery message"

"(): Sorry, this image type is not supported yet."

Still no good but a feeling that it's something to do with the format in which the system is dealing with the photos?

And to confirm, my photos are jpegs of around 300Kb and no more than 1000 pixels wide.

Hi Mal,
The only odd-ball situation I can think of where this happens is something like CMYK JPG images versus the more normal RGB JPG type images. Make sure the images you are saving are normal 'web type' JPG images and not the more complex CMYK version (which is usually what RAW images are for example).

Best wishes,
Jim

OK Jim I'll check but I am sure that they aren't RAW images. Oddly though I checked my gallery just now and all of my attempts have now been uploaded! All of them! So I now have a shed load of images to delete but the problem there is that there are no thumbnails, apart from for one image. Clicking on the "No thumbnail" caption does give me the photo but on deleting one I am taken back to my gallery page, so deleting all of the unnecessary photos is going to take ages!

I'll try uploading again but I won't keep try and see what happens.
