 I want to add new images from my computer to ellengriggpaintings.com on the Archive page but I get an error message: Invalid file name!  "File name can contain only alphanumberics,-,_."
I have tried relabeling the images but nothing works.

Hello,

If you are receiving that error you will want to rename the image from your computer directly where its stored and save it, overriding the old name. Then re-upload the image under the new image name. Make sure there are no special characters or spaces in the file name.

Thank you so much.  I was able to download, but I can only get it to appear as a thumbnail.  I need the ability to edit the size of the image.  I did that with previous images on my pages, but it was so long ago I don't remember how I did it and you seem to have redesigned the SiteBuilder website since then.  I'm caught in the old system!

No worries, I understand there is a learning curve. If it is appearing as a small thumbnail you may have uploaded it into a photo gallery instead of one image. You can tell which you are using if you select the image and look to the right. It will either display photo gallery or just the single image name. Make sure you upload it as just an image.

Photo galleries do not let you resize or scale the image, an image upload will allow you to resize.

Bingo!  That's exactly what I did wrong. You are brilliant.
