    Error converting image (create thumbnail).

    Level 1
      Maybe you can point me in the right direction.
      I have only recently started trying to use Dreamweaver CS3 and ADDT to
      do my PHP coding.
      I have had and used Dreamweaver and MX and MX2004 and Studio 8 etc. for
      HTML
      I ran into a problem following the image upload tutorial online.
      I created the page to thumb_view.php and ran it succfully including
      clicking on a picture which then was view in full_view.php. The problem
      was I wanted to change the number of rows and col in the Horizontal
      Looper
      I myust of done something wrong becuse it will no longer work. I even
      tried to undo without success. I even deleted the thumbs_view and
      started over without success. What do I need to do to get back?

          Hi Dave,

          that "Error converting image..." message indicates missing write permission for the "thumbs" folder created by ADDT, so you need to change the permission in ADDT´s configuration file.

          Please open the file "includes/common/KT_config.inc.php" and check the line that´s starting with the "$KT_folder_mode" variable, example:

          $KT_folder_mode = "755";

          In case this line is missing, please add it manually -- however, here´s where you can define the default permission for folders created by ADDT, and in case 755 doesn´t work, change that value to 777

          Cheers,
          Günter Schenk

            Thank You Gunter,
            But could I have used the wrong behavior that would allow me to create the thumbs_view and link to the full size picture without creating the new folders? I have looked and there are no new folders.
            It worked until I tried to change the rows & col in the looper
            here is waht I find in KT_config.inc.php
            // Array definitions

            // Start Variable definitions
            $KT_db_date_format = "yyyy-mm-dd";
            $KT_db_time_format = "hh:mm:ss tt";
            $KT_screen_date_format = "m/d/yy";
            $KT_screen_time_format = "hh:mm tt";
            $KT_prefered_image_lib = "gd";
            $KT_prefered_imagemagick_path = "";
            $KT_prefered_tidy_path = "";
            $KT_prefered_aspell_path = "";
            $KT_file_mode = "644";
            $KT_folder_mode = "755";
            $KT_default_image_quality = "80";
            // End Variable definitions
            FYI: I changed the images folder permissions to 775 and then 777 before it would create the thumbnails folder.
