Before I read your post, I went into a photo editor and resized slightly so the .jpg would not have the same byte or pixel count. Gave it a different name, and the upload was accepted. [Humans are STILL smarter than computers!]
Now it shows up with a thumbnail and will blow up to what I wanted.
Have not a clue as to what you did, but I'll play around in the test section with stuff I don't want to post immediately.

All I did was upload it to Photobucket. It is a free image-hosting website, and you can resize your images right there. It's very useful for putting images in threads.

Two easy ways to do it:
You can link to the first pic by opening it, copying the URL, and then posting it in the second thread by clicking on the little postcard looking icon and pasting the URL into the popup box.
Or, you can go to your attachments in User CP and delete the original attachment and then attach it again.

Thanks Odd & Larry.
I'll check out photobucket.
Larry: Thanks for the explanation as to how to make the computer "forget" I was uploading a test .jpg.
