    Trouble uploading images to LFP

    I have uploaded pics to this website in the past, and attached them to posts.

    I am now using the latest version of Windows 10 and do not seem to be able to transfer images from my files to LFP for posting.

    Any help?

    It's the "Edge" browser that came with Windows 10, most likely. Try the browser you used before. I switch back to Explorer for some interactions with my own website. Hope this helps.

    Yeah . . . .the Explorer browser doesn't work on my equipment anymore. It locks up with one click. . . .because of Edge I am told by Geek-Squad experts.

    Whats the problem with Edge? I mean Microsoft practically invented PC software, so why the glitch?

    If Edge (and IE) were so awesome, Chrome and Firefox would not be so popular.

    My website administrator told me to download Firefox as an alternative. (I was able to revert to Explorer, though.) His message, I think, is that Edge isn't "fixable" and websites will have to adjust to it, not vice-versa. Welcome to the world of an all-powerful technology leader: Conform or go back the writing on slate by the fireside. The good news is that lots of people are happy with Firefox.

    By using Firefox or Chrome. I have been using Firefox for well over ten + years and I feel icky on any other browser. They just don't feel right.

    Re: Trouble uploading images to LFP

    I trained on Windows XP for several months at a school for the blind and visually impaired. When I got my computer it came with Vista and I lost a huge amount of ability, having to learn by doing. I was still pretty clueless when Window 8 came out and resisted that till forced to convert to Windows 10, and I am still marginal mostly using Yahoo and staying off Google. Moving on to another new look and way of getting things done would be very difficult for me at this time.

    What I am hearing here is that I won't be able to get someone to come in and change settings or "something" to simply transfer images from my computer files to LFP. Would I have a similar problem with other websites (say, to answer a call-for-art)?

    Drew,

    One work-around is to use "Edge" to upload to Flicker, and then use the Flicker address to tie your images to LFF. I think there is a description somewhere here. That's what I have converted to doing.
