Hi everyone and thoughts to all of you still experiencing problems.
I did have problems with the loading of pictures and went back to Turbolister for a week or 2.
I have just put one item on with auctiva and it all went very smoothly and easily.
I don't know why it was failing before and have definately not made any changes to my PC and would never be tempted to.
All I can say is for those still failing, just try to make sure your photos are in the right format.
This is a free service and I am sure that Auctiva do want to keep us, but they too, have to make changes as and when Ebay decide to.
I want to wish you all the best of luck and hope that any issues are quickly resolved,
take care everyone
