Would anyone have a clue as to what would be keeping me from using the numerous free image hosting sites that are out there (Imageshack, etc.)?

Upon trying to submit an image for hosting, be it jpg, gif or whatever, the page eventually times out. This happens with any site I attempt to use.

Everything works great if I submit from work so I'm a bit stumped.
Running Win XP if that helps..

I just used Photobucket right now, works fine.

Are you sure your file sizes are within limits? Maybe they're too big. What speed connection do you have, broadband?

How do you connect to these sites?  Are they normal HTTP or HTTPS sites or maybe FTP?  Do you have a hardware firewall or software firewall like ICF or zonealarm installed and running?  If you have a software firewall have you tried to send the pics with the firewall closed?  How big are the pics...are they small optimized pictures for the web or 2-4MB monsters straight from the flash card of your camera?

Thanks for all the responses!

Firstly, these are very compact files - 40-60k maximum. Luckily I know how to play the "crunch game."  smile

All the sites are normal HTTP sites - I have the wimpy firewall that is included with the stock Win XP package but I have attempted to upload the files both with it activated and shut down.

I do have some webspace kicking around so I suppose I'll have to go that route - it just REALLY bugs me not knowing what the solution is!   :x  biggrin

Well, I have Windows firewalll shut off and I'm using Zonealarm.  If I were you, I would attempt to upload something somewhere PRIVATE if possible. That way, you can establish that you are capable of uploading and these public sites are at fault. Since you have some webspace, I'd use that for the experiment.
