I've just been updating my CG66 and thought I would add a photo this time.

I followed the instructions and pointed to a photo, file size 70kb (it has to be less than 100kb), on my C: drive. However, despite several attempts, including re-log-ins, changing the file/filename etc., I can't get the photo to load. There's no error message or other indication of failure - just no photo. :(

Has anyone succeeded? If so, what's the secret. :confused:

I had that issue.
I phoned them and they said it had downloaded.
Bit pointless, as I sent them a picture of an AWB with white sails.

I should send them a new pic, as I now have whizzy decals on my new white sails.

Who did you phone - your local MRCC (Solent in my case)?

If you view your CG66 now does it indicate that the photo has loaded? Maybe it takes 24 hours (or some such) for the site to get updated?

It's a bit rubbish, though, if it is a common problem with no explanation or warning. :(

Looks like they have updated the site.
However, phone one of these....

Thanks for that.

Just phoned Solent and the nice lady there explained that photos have to be approved by them first (to ensure it matches the boat etc.) so they don't appear immediately.

That said, she doesn't appear to have received a photo from me and she thinks the system has changed . . .

She has therefore asked me to email the photo to her and she will check and upload it.

That will solve my immediate problem but it still doesn't explain why it won't work on-line. :rolleyes:

The nice lady from Solent MRCC just range back to say she has checked and uploaded the photo; no mention of why the on-line system failed, though.

I suggest if you have the same problem uploading a photo, just email it to the MRCC that holds your CG66 and they will check and upload it for you. Full Circle has posted all the relevant contact details in #4 above.
