  1. Thanks - and I was very happy to see that the photos on my old posts are back! If I had a photo of me looking happy about this, I'd post it!

      Oh, hooray, I am so happy, see thats me with the big smile on my face just to the right of the rest of the family.

    2. The original of this image is 65K and 1152x768. Your widget resized it to 540x347 and the file size increased to 149K.

      That seems weird and wrong. Why resize if you're not going to save space?

          Bloat is gone.

          What triggers resizing? It would be nice to know how to avoid it if possible.

      1. Is photos not working again? I just tried to post some photos, all under 2mb, to my [MSP] crystal bistro chowdown report on the Midwest board and the wouldn't take.

          Working for me. Maybe it's a browser-specific issue?

        2. No current problems with uploading photos again, but all the pictures I've added over the months before mid-April have been deleted; in particular, all the pics from the Cookbook of the Month threads on the Home Cooking board (I linked or uploaded a picture with every recipe report).

          I posted this on a different topic -

          Although I can see the most recent photos dating back from a couple of months ago - I had many many more that are lost - all my pictures from the "Hot, Sour, Salty, Sweet" threads, "Leite's Culinaria", and "Zuni", and many from "Arabesque", for example, are gone.

          Here are some examples:

          Any way to get these back?


          1. Please - Any update on why the photos are being deleted? I've lost more since I posted yesterday.

            I just noticed today that I though I've added new pictures, I had more that were deleted. When I posted the above, I had photos going back to April 15th. Checking it today, those are gone, and the oldest is now from April 23rd. Please let me know if I can keep using the feature, and get these pictures back. Or stop using it and just link to Shutterfly?

              They're not supposed to be deleted. We'll take a look.

              Are they being removed from the actual posts? Or only from your My CHOW view.

                1. re: Rubee

                  Ok. Before photos were re-enabled, we had a limit of 75 photos per user. We still have a display limit on the profile page of 72 photos per user right now, but old photos no longer get deleted. For example, does not show your photo from , but it remains in the post.

                  Some photos from before this change may have been deleted. If you still have them, you can repost them and they will remain for all time.

                  Sorry for the inconvenience.

                  1. re: Engineering

                    Thanks so much for the explanation. Makes sense, though disappointing (looks like every photo I uploaded between January and around April 10th was deleted). Thanks for looking into it, though, I really appreciate it.
