    Never had a problem. Is there any error coming back or is it just pretending like it's downloading but never finishes. If you are putting them in your description you need to switch to the HTML mode.

    that's pretty bad, if ebay won't take it ; ) been a long time since i used ebay, and it's surely changed. Did you dr the photos any, in a program that might have changed the format ? does it still say jpeg ? Can you view your internet activity, to see if while it's supposedly loading, if it's actually moving any data?

    idk...I just have DSL connection on the desktop. If you are able to upload to Photobucket it should work for Ebay too.

    Don't know if it'll help Mike, but try signing out of ebay the sign back in. Sometimes I have to do that if I'm working on a listing.

    i always pre listed mine there, was a dime well spent, to get your listing all ready to go, and uploaded and set, at least two hours before it was set to actually begin. That gave it time to get set up in their system, and when the listing started, it was on the front page, and could "hit the ground running", instead of finally showing up in the listings, two hours later, on page 457

    1st pic on ebay is free, then I believe 15 cents per pic after. I post the 1st, then load the rest from photo bucket so I don't give ebay any more $$ than necessary.

    However that doesn't solve your problem of uploading a pic. You definitely want to upload one, otherwise your listing shows a blank photo which equals less views.
