    I'm in Chelmer, just across the River from Indooroopilly. I'm hoping to get some advice on how to fix my load problem and will load the images when I do.

    I have been able to upload images easily in the past, but they will not do so now. I have edited the size of the images down to less than 1 MB each.

    Any help appreciated.
