how are you doing it. i had the same issue when i first tried. i click on the picture on lj's then save to my computer. then i just upload them here, it's worked fine for me doing it that way.
did you do it the same as the others, which all look great.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

Hope you can get the better pics because it looks like a real nice piece of furniture
From what I can see it looks nice, the fan carving turned out great.

That's right Pottz I put it in a new folder on my PC and then dropped in the picture box on the Craftisian  new project page???? Can I delete and replace these pictures?

Regardless of picture quality, it's easy to see this is a beautiful piece. Nice carvings. I'm sure this will become a family heirloom. 

Regarding the photos, the thumbnails look good, I think this site software enlarged them too much. My best guess anyway.
yes click on the the 3 dots to edit and you can remove the pic's and replace. i tried to do what i did the very first time because mine looked just like yours but i cant remember what i did wrong ?

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

All I did was go over to LJ, simply download it to the PC and then upload from the PC...  

I did use a purchased app that shrinks/enlarges photos with minimal distortion.  I was going to include the link but when I realised how expensive it was, I left it out... I've used it for years and the upgrade costs have been reasonable.

Oldrivers, when you saved it to your PC maybe the resolution that was set on your PC was too coarse.  Just a thought.  Did you save it from the enlarged photo on LJ or from the thumbnail?  That will make a difference too.
It truly is an heirloom piece!
