    Hi, on my android phone since yesterday I am unable to add a picture from my Photo album using the upload a file button. It gets slowly to about 30% then I get an error message saying there was a problem uploading

    Absolutely no help whatsoever but the same thing happened to me but it kind of sorted itself out quite quickly. I say kinda, because now when I upload pictures from my phone it's the narrow view ones whereas before it would be full size.

    I think it may be to do with the memory storage on your phone. I used to have the same problem. Storage space on my old phone was running low .I don't know why but maybe something to do with the phone have to store the data before uploading it. On my new Pixel 2 which has loads of space I no longer have a problem. May be completely wrong but may also be due to low RAM.

    It won't be that, I've got plenty of RAM and I've cleared some Space on the internal Memory the other day.

    It does sound like memory issues on the phone.

    I just cannot see how, as above I've more Internal storage than in a long time and plenty of RAM, using an average of 62% with 1Gb to spare.

    Eta... Unless I'm missing something

    Maybe the image is too large?

    My iPhone takes pics that are too large to upload to CC... But if you can't upload pics that you've previously uploaded successfully, I agree that's unlikely to be the cause of the problem here.

    Same with me, except it's only the smaller landscape view I can use.

    My phone has a built in app called smart manager, using this to clean the storage usually sorts it out.
