    The photo is 1000x660 pix, and weighs 130 kb, all within tolerances . Yet, I keep getting the «Upload failed» message. Why is that? Thanks.:huh

    I doesn't work very well at all. Use Google Picasa or one of the other services like Photobucket and then link to the image.

    Nobody can attach pics anymore, you need to link them from your smugmug account use the mountain icon not the paperclip icon.

    Have a read here if you need more info.

    yeah my heading should have been can't post a photo from smugmug.

    I use the mountain icon..it asks for a URL. I don't understand. I thought I just click copy on the embeddable links tab and drag my photo

    I read and printed the instructions and think I am following them
