Website - can't edit recipe or load a photo

I uploaded a recipe and photo earlier today (Apple and Ginger Scones). I decided to change the headnote slightly, and noticed an error in the recipe (an extra 1/4 cup of sugar that's not supposed to be there!). Also, my photo didn't upload. Have tried 4 times now. The header updated, but the recipe and photo still won't allow me to edit.

Thank you for letting us know. Have you had any issues in the past with editing a recipe or uploading a photo, or is this new? And can you let me know PC or Mac and which browser? Thanks!

Mac with a Safari browser. I had a terrible time uploading a recipe a couple weeks ago, but the site was in the middle of its upgrade woes. It's a lot zippier now, but still doesn't want to let me edit ingredients or upload a photo. ;-(

Still can't edit the recipe ingredients, but the header does update, so I put an errata note there temporarily. I have "dumbed down" my photo to 1.1 MB, and am still getting an error message that it's too big. Hope someone can help me on Monday.

Amanda, please don't take this as anything more than frustration. It's not a contest recipe, and it's not terribly urgent, except that others seem to like it, and I don't want them to have a bad outcome. You and Merrill are SO busy with your book tour right now - I have complete faith that it will be worked out. I just don't want others to have the same experience, and I have other recipes to post, but honestly, I'm holding back for now given the difficulties.

When you export your photo, choose "small" jpeg quality.

I did. That's why my photo is only 1.1 MB. The site says that it will accept an image up to 2 MB, but it won't accept 1.1 MB.

I'm having trouble editing today, as well. I haven't had much trouble before. When I click on Publish, I get sent to a screen saying Internal Server Error. Mac/Safari.

It's still doing the same thing. I'm trying to edit the baking time for a recipe I posted earlier today for Hearty Harvest Bread. Right after I posted it, I was able to make a couple of quick edits, but not for a while now. Thanks.

The Edit function continues to return the Internal Server Error. I also can't post a photo to the recipe. I don't get an error message, it just never loads. The same thing happened earlier today when I was trying to change the photo on my Profile page.
