Uploading to Flickr- help
Flickr isn't letting me upload my photos. Every time I try, I get a pop-up saying "Bonk! Errors must be fixed before you can continue". Then a message that says "One file is invalid and needs to be removed" Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks

I'd say start by trying to upload the images one at a time, or in smaller batches, so you can isolate which file is the troublemaker.
Are any of these images stitched panoramas? I've run headlong into the maximum file size limit on Flickr with panos before.

It's 3 pictures, and I've tried each of them separately. Each one gives the error. No paroramas, nothing over the size limit.

How are you uploading? (I.e., app, Flickr interface, etc.) And what's the format of the files?
BTW, the Flickr Uploading Help page says:
I tried to use your upload page and got a "BONK" error. What's that?
A 'BONK' message means your upload failed. You might come across this on the Upload page.
Here are a few possibilities: there may be a problem with the format of the image, there could be a problem with the file itself, or it is possible the internet connection timed out, so the upload itself was incomplete.
If you get that error, you can try the same photo through the old upload page, or the Uploadr (which you can download from the Tools page), or an upload by email. If the file only fails in the Flash upload page, feel free to send us some detail on what files failed for you.

Thank you! I tried the old upload page and it worked. Odd...
maybe I spoke too soon. The first one uploaded no problem. The second one failed. Guess I'll just keep trying...
after the third try, they all worked. yay.
