Hi Colin

I found that too. Look again and I'm sure you will find you photo there. There seems to be a delay, frustrating I know. These things are sent to try us.

If the upload was successful, it will be in your 'Keepsafe'.

As a check, I've uploaded one of mine - it works fine

There can be delays, and even "Image cannot be transferred". I found that after selecting the image, on the following page the "Title" doesn't appear before you click to upload. This means the system hasn't grabbed the image address correctly and you have to go back and do it again.

I'm pretty pleased with the Keepsafe. :-)

hey Malcolm, when i finally figured out how to do it , it's easy, i too like keep safe however i wish they wouldn't keep changing things
