some recipe photos won't upload

Asked by Shirley French on 2020-02-26

The only problem I'm having at this time is sometimes the recipe photo I want to use for an online recipe won't work. I even tried searching for different photos online to use because I would like to have a photo for each of the recipes I save and none of them work. Is there a reason for that or is there something I can do to fix the problem?

Hi Shirley,

Gourmet can only import JPEG, PNG, BMP, CGF and TIFF images. If the image not one of these images (i.e. WEBP), the image will need to be converted using an image application (i.e. Paint or GIMP) to one of the support image formats.

Regards,

Saxon.

Sometimes, when you see an image in a Web site, the site attempts to stop you from saving the image, so they use an extension that allows browsers to read the image but it's not a standard image extension and can't be used most other anywhere else but the Net.

When you find an image you want, you can right-click and "Save As". You will see the name of the image plus a "period" (or dot) and then 3 to 4 characters. You can change those characters to: JPG; PNG; JPEG; etc. (lower or upper case doesn't matter), and then save the image.

Example: myimage.webp is the name of an image you want to save from a Web site. Right-click on the image, select "Save As", and you will see a window open.
In that window at the bottom you will see the name of the image - in this example, myimage.webp - and below that you will see "Save as type".
Left click where it indicates WebP image (*.webp) and change that to "All files (*.*)".
Then, you will see "myimage.webp" as the image name, and you need to change myimage.webp to myimage.png and click Save.

Locate the image on your device where you saved the image and you will find the new image with ".png" at the end (the "extension").
As long as you can open the image on your device you will be able to use that image elsewhere.

PNG is the most popular image type today and since we already know that PNG works with Gourmet Recipe Manager, just use that format.

Can you help with this problem?
