    I think you just tried to do it while PF had a short downtime. Try again and see if it works this time.

    It should upload very quickly. If it still doesn't work this time, report back again...it might mean there's a glitch somewhere (unless you have a very slow connection speed).

    Is it within the maximum dimensions allowed?
    bmp Max. file size:100.0 KB Max width:1280 Max height: 1024

    If that's not it, then we have to wait for Greg or Chroot to help. If you've gotten so far as it to be trying to upload, then I can't imagine anything you would have done wrong as long as the filesize is within the limits allowed.

    I just tried with a jpg, and that worked, but I don't have any bmp files to try.

    Yes it's within limits
    I'll see if that works

    Jpegs are better for almost all purposes anyway.
