Image Upload Improvements

The Chowhound Team | Nov 14, 201805:43 PM     45

Hi everyone,

Our team has been focused on nailing down some pesky image upload bugs you’ve reported this month. Here’s a quick rundown:

— Images not uploading - This was a really hard one to tackle. After digging in, the team discovered that capitalization of photo extensions, e.g. .JPG or .PNG would result in images failing to upload. This has been fixed and you should not have issues here going forward.

— Image rotation bug - This issue was seen when uploading images from mobile devices. We’ve launched a fix that should ensure that the orientation of the images you upload should match the orientation you see on your device.

— Profile image uploads - Finally, there was a bug that was preventing your ability to upload a new profile image. This has been fixed as well.

We truly want to thank you for your patience and all of your help pinpointing these issues. Please give it a try and let us know if you are still experiencing issues with uploading images.

As always, please let us know what device and browser you are using if you run into any problems.

For reference, here are the threads with recent reports:
