Hi Everyone.

Is anyone else having trouble submitting photos? I am trying to submit my first costume and for some reason the photos are not working. I have uploaded my pictures to Flickr, Photobucket and Imgur and tried to submit the URLs from all three websites but every time I have pressed submit, I end up getting an error message saying 'Missing or invalid image. Image must be in JPEG format.'

I have checked and all of the URLs I have put in ended in .jpg and all of them opened when I have checked the links before submitting so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

(And if I am accidentally submitting the application multiple times, I apologise. I have been at this for hours now and keep getting the error message so I don't know what is going on)

I think they might be too big. Save them so that the longest edge is 600pxls and it should go through.

This forum software is 11 years out-of-date and can't handle large image files.

the first photo (action shot) where you click browse is uploaded directly from your computer and has to be under 1000 pixels per side. So if all your photos are on a site you need to download it to your computer first, then upload it to your application.

the rest go on the lines. top line is the link to your photo second is description. Be sure you use the direct link for photobucket and for the others click to the actual photo (as if you wanted to zoom in on it ) then copy the link to the application
