Maybe it's too small? If that's not the case, then I think it's just a problem that kinzvillenews.com is having.

Are you guys sure that your image is saved as a JPEG? It has to be a JPEG.

This is what works for me on my PC. To upload a picture of a room from WW I do a screen capture. Just click the key on your keyboard with Prt Scr on it. Next I open the program "paint". Do a search if you cannot find that program. I then command paste my screen capture into "Paint". Next I crop the picture to the size I want by putting a box around the area I want and then selecting crop. I then name and save my new image as a gif or JPEG to my desktop (you could try both ways).

You would then go to the Kinzville News contest, click the browse button and locate your new image on your desktop.

You're right Electrabuzz. Gee whiz, who knew that there were different file types on paint.

The same thing is happening to me! How do you know what file the image is on? And how do I get to the right size?

Hi, if you follow my instructions on doing a screen capture, pasting it into paint and saving it as a JPEG you should not have a problem with the size. Mine are always around 65kb. Much smaller than the maximum allotted size. See my previous instructions on this thread.

On my Paint I can't find a crop command(where is that found?) so I have to Cut then use the Clear Image. My Paint is located under Accessories. The JPEG is in the drop down list when you save your picture. My biggest problem is getting my pics size small enough. Good Luck with the contest.

Cropping
In my paint version you just draw a box around the area you want to crop to (using that rectangle dashed tool - called select) then you go to the menus at the top, click on the one called image, select crop and voila.
