so I had a photo there that I deleted. now trying to upload another

I have tried multiple pictures I have saved

working from my chromebook

I click "change picture" and I have tried both "upload a new picture" and "choose file"

both allow me to select a picture and then the screen refreshes. no picture ever uploads. no error message appears

any thoughts?

    Perhaps the photo is too large? Just spitballing.

    my thoughts too, but no size listed

    both pictures I tried were pictures of UGA I got off google

    I just tried a personal picture I took and worked

    I always try to find the same picture using google - images.

    You can the use advanced search to limit the size of the picture.

    For personal pictures, there is freeware that will reduce its size.

    Find a random small picture and try to use that to see if size is the issue.

    I've found that this site will block some pics and gifs. It just might be the ever loving internal "firewall". Usually I get my images and copy them to my desktop. It works most of the time but not always.

    Here's one vote for keeping the pic of your yellow lab. I miss mine.

    more I think about more I wonder if that is it

    the pics that worked were ones I took, the ones that did not were ones I found in google image search

    They are awesome dogs. Haven't yet been able to bring myself to get another pup. Like you, just can't phantom ever being that close with another one again. Many happy years with your lab in the pic.

    I used google image and had luck with it. I also use Chrome as my browser, but you did say you were working on Chromebook so IDK?

    BTW- Labs are great dawgs. Actually, all the dogs I've had as pets were great.....and long gone, sadly!!
