Images not uploading

I am trying to post images for my talk show IMDb page, and they are within guidelines, but for some reason, it keeps telling me, "Error uploading image". Is this a site bug, or am I restricted from posting images?

Sorry to hear that there are issues with the upload.  Some tips on what to try:

1.  Please try another image just in case there is an issue with the size or encoding of the first image you are trying to add; watch for excessively long file names, characters outside A-Za-z0-9 and extremely large files (can you shrink the poster but keep it above our minimum size)

2.  Please try another browser just in case there is an incompatibility between your usual browser and our upload software.  In particular you may need to disable any browser plug-ins, particularly ad blockers. 

3. If you have access to another machine or can ask a friend to upload on your behalf, try that 

If it still does not work, please provide details of the system and browser you are trying, the title to which you are adding and attach a screen-grab of the error message and the poster you are trying to upload as a reply to this post. 

Thanks and good luck.  Let us know how it goes.

Thanks.  The images look fine and upload fine here so we have opened a ticket with the appropriate team.

While I am at it, I am having severe difficulty adding my name to the credits of my show, while other names are added without question. I am very upset considering, I'm the host, main producer and I am in the title of the show.

Please see http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?addsprocessingtimes 

Do you have any submissions older than the oldest item quoted on http://www.imdb.com/czone/times in the corresponding sections?

An update for you from the software team ... the cause of the upload failures is likely to be because your system clock is too far out-of-sync from the correct time in your time zone.  We use this for security purposes in accepting your upload. Please adjust your system clock or synchronize it with an NTP server (details can be found online with the right query to a search engine for your system). 

Separately we are looking at displaying a better error message when this happens.
