I'm having trouble uploading images. I just get a fatal error - line 9. Is is OK if i upload images to my server while this problem is being sorted?

There is no issue with the uploader as I have just used it, so no, don't use your own server. Myself and moderators will simply remove the image.

Errors are usually caused by one of two things:
1. Bad browser
2. Bad image

So get a better browser or fix it, or make the image a properly recognised image.

EDIT: Looking at the code the error is on the MIME-TYPE so it means the image you're trying to upload doesnt have a proper identifier in it to declare itself as an image such as jpg or png etc.

Found out the images are bad. Resaving them as JPGs, and they work fine.

For future knowledge, what was "bad" about the image? Just so I know this info for advising other members.

They had just got corrupted. Not enough to affect the image, but the embedded information had gone.
