Is anyone else having upload troubles?

 

I tried an upload of 16 images last night (Friday) & it failed half way through with the "washing machine" icon spinning on the next file to process. I tried again a few hours later & I couldn't get even the first image to upload. This morning (Saturday), I tried again & my browser crashed after 10 images. Those 10 images however are now in "processing".

 

I use Firefox & as a computer engineer, everything is working well on my Windows 7 pc. I can't remember the last time my Firefox crashed, but not for at least a year. Is this just me, or is it affecting anyone else?

I didn't upload yesterday but in the days before. Various upload problems have been reported lately, mostly FTP, though. I haven't faced any of these problems yet using Windows 10 and Chrome and uploading via the Alamy site.

 

PS Reminds me of the joke with three engineers riding in a car that won't start, one of them is a computer engineer. You probably know what to do?  :)

Have you tried to upload via the new Alamy Image Manager. That seems to work well.

I'm having constant problems with Alamy Web Upload NOT FTP.  FTP works fine. 

Alamy Web Upload either is extremely slow or fails with messages "Upload Error.

I have reported it to Alamy and they told me the problem was me.  I never had issues with the old Alamy Web Upload.  

 

Here is the other thread on the same issue in the other forum http://discussion.alamy.com/index.php?/topic/7190-100-upload-image-submission-failing-to-error/

My upload of 13 took two hours. No spinning icon, just at a snail's pace. This was not a prime heavy traffic time, but 8 pm USA.

 

During that time, I painted the living room and watched the paint dry. ;)

Yes... I think that's what I'm using & even the new version has not failed on me until now.
