My camera/photos I was trying to upload are 1280x960 pictures. It won't take a 400x1200 that you require and I contacted some people that have fancy cameras and theirs won't either. Help me out here.

Why do you exclude so many of us when we are just as capable but choose to live elsewhere? It is somewhat frustrating, to put it mildly.

For a long time you offered sale reductions but, in the small print, it was clear these reductions were limited to US residents only. At least I helped to get that codicil made clearer up front.
