Having major issues uploading images.

When I upload an image or any other type of file to my SynthaSite page, it's clearly visible in the file manager, so I place the image/file somewhere in my site. When I go back to the file manager later on, nothing is displayed. All that is shown is an empty file manager, so then I upload that image again, and it asks me if it's alright to overwrite the image that I loaded earlier, and I click "yes". The image then supposedly uploads, but I still don't see it in the file manager.

With one of my sites, I had probably 30 images uploaded, but now none of them display in the file manager.

Help?

For me, it only does that for music files. But for images, it still has the picture. I think it may have to do with the file type. Jpg and GIF seem to stay. I'll upload some more images and see what happens

Thank you, that may help. I've been uploading PNG images, so that may be why they don't seem to stay, but I am also having the same troubles with sound files, as you said you are too.

How do you upload actual digital pictures that are not in a jpg or bit format, just downloaded from Nikon camera?

I don't have a Nikon camera but on my Cannon they are already JPEG files. To find out what they are just right click on the picture that you want, click on properties, then look at Type of file (its the second line from the top). If they are not an acceptable file (like image.zip, which I doubt its gonna be) just resave the file as a .JPEG the upload the file in the file manager
-Hope this helps. I am going to sleep so I will respond if you have more questions/comments tomorrow, Dan

Hi njoynlife, could you let us know what format your pictures are? For example, are they .jpeg, .png, .gif etc. Also remember that if you delete your images from the File Manager, they won't display on the page...
