Unable to add pictures to posts. I have done it many times before, so I know how. When you select upload it does nothing. They do go into my albums and I tried uploading from my computer and albums. Any advice.

Edit: Never mind it just worked. I tried again after posting and it worked. It did not work 2 minutes ago and yesterday. Go figure.

Don't worry, the next time you try, it won't work. I try the landscape box, the paper clip, upload from albums, copy and paste from Google Photos. Sometimes those work, sometimes they don't. Sometimes if any of them work, not all users can see it.
Sometimes your photo appears, then in a matter of time, it disappears. Or, it doesn't show, then magically it does.

Here's an alternate way to add pics to a post.

This works every time.

Just tried Tiny Pics, unfortunately, it was a nonsecure site for me.

True, it's not a secure site, so I wouldn't recommend uploading pictures of your bank account info, lol.

But just uploading pics of trucks and whatever else shouldn't be an issue.

I use it all the time at work, and we have firewalls coming out the ying-yang.

The site is marked as " Info or Not Secure" as opposed to "Not Secure or Dangerous".

It just means that info sent through that site may be seen or changed by someone else because it isn't using a private connection and does not use "HTTPS".

I think it's just the nature of a public image sharing site.

Like I mentioned, as long as you're not uploading personal info, you should be just fine.Check if a site's connection is secure

To see whether a website is safe to visit, you can check for security info about the site. Chrome will alert you if you can’t visit the site safely or privately.
  1. In Chrome, open a page.
  2. To check a site's security, to the left of the web address, look at the security status:
    • Secure
    • Info or Not secure
    • Not secure or Dangerous
  3. To see the site's details and permissions, select the icon. You'll see a summary of how private Chrome thinks the connection is.


Info or Not secureThe site isn't using a private connection. Someone might be able to see or change the information you send or get through this site.

Yeah I think I jinxed it when I said "this always works" lol.

I've been having issues with Tinypic today as well.

NORMALLY, it works great, but today for some reason it's been a real PITA!
