Every time I upload a photo, it downloads 100%, but then it says there is an IOError? What does this mean and how do I fix it? Thanks!

Used to be able to do simpler uploads on MC.

Nowadays you need to save your pictures that you wish to upload as a .jpg file when you "save as," on your computer hard drive.

Then use that jpg file to upload here to your profile.

If you just wish to copy and paste a picture to a forum thread post, all you need to do is copy and paste the URL and place brackets in front and back of the URL line with img at the front between brackets, and /img at back between brackets. I'd do that here to demonstrate, but they'd be invisible which means they're working like they're supposed to.

There has been something wrong with the uploader for months.

I get an error informing me that the file must be of jpg format with the extension in lowercase.

I am extremely computer savvy, but nothing I have tried converts my uppercase JPG extensions to lowercase jpg extensions.

Simply changing it to lowercase jpg and doing a save as has yet to work for me. I am being told it requires a file format converter software/utility, and I simply have not bothered to take the time to try one being I do not have the issue with anything other than here at MC.

The issue is why I do not have a profile photo posted. The uploader will only allow me to post old photos of lower pixel quality with a lowercase jpg extension.
