Thank you both Rob & Derek.
 
 I have tried everything suggested, I have taken out all numbers, forward slashes all to no avail, I will now try with a simple 1- word and see if it has anything to do with long names.
 
 Tried a single word    engine     no joy,  error page comes up.
 Tried reducing size to 400 x 300 and single word     engine    no joy, error page comes up.   
 
 George.

It really doesn't like that file name for some reason!  {:-{
( G_box_driving slip_eccentric.jpg  )

The Forum doesn't ( didn't ) like the "Lynx" for some reason either

Many thanks to all who's suggestions were appreciated.
This last test requested by Derek has failed.

I think that a line should now be drawn as there is something that we can't discover, so if I want to post pics in the future I will ask for them to be posted by another party.

Thanks again.

George.

Derek,
The answer was in front of me all of the time, I sent the pics by e-mail to my wife's lap top and the JPEG pics were automatically changed to JPG and I can size the pics before mailing.
It's a simple mater of then going thro' the attachments  and I can then upload from the forum browser.

It's now just getting familiar with the lap top.

Thanks for your efforts.

George
