OK ... this time try an upload of an image that wouldn't upload from the main PC
OK, that didn't work ......
something about the forum that doesn't like my recently resized images
time to ponder ...... thanks everyone for your input
OK this has always been the work flow for that small number of images I want to upload to Facebook, here or other forums .....
Edit the RAW image in Lightroom ----> save to desktop as the full sized jpg ---> resize and compress image in IrfanView --> upload to WWW
IrfanView is a basic editor I have used for many years. 99.9% of its use is for resizing and compressing
load in a full sized image > resize to 1000 x 665 ( or there abouts) save with a compression of around 85%
maybe something has ( or I have accidentally) changed in that editor ??
