Could be a bandwidth or server overload problem.
Have you tried reducing the size of your images to say, 800 * 600 pixel resolution before you try uploading them? This will reduce the file size. I know that resizing is done automatically by this site but you still have the transmission.

Hi Mr C

Was the upload one at a time or a batch upload?

Try turning off 'friendly HTTP error messages' in Internet Explorer's advanced preferences section; see if that gives any more clues.

However I'm inclined to think it's connectivity rather than any server issue; any errors are trapped by the error.htm page which indicates a problem has occured.

Thanks,
Simon
