Photo uploads are working! (Updated 11/20/2013)

We are happy to report that the photo upload issue has been fixed, and you can now upload projects again. Thank you all for your patience!

Happy sewing!

Hi all,
We sincerely apologize to everyone unable to upload new projects to the site. There is an issue with uploading photos to our server, and we are working to get this fixed as soon as possible. Thanks for bearing with us through our tech troubles and growing pains. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of new projects from you soon!

Happy sewing,
The BurdaStyle Team

You may have noticed we are having some color issues on the site. We understand your frustration and have been working with our tech team to fix this problem as soon as possible. We are happy to report that the glitch causing the extra contrast has been identified, and will be corrected by the end of the week.

When the issue is fixed, any projects uploaded in the past week will return to normal color. Please do not alter your photos to compensate for the extra contrast. You should be seeing your projects with normal lighting and color by tomorrow evening.

Thank you all for your patience! We can’t wait to see your creations looking their best again.

Happy Stitching,

The BurdaStyle Team

    Looks like the photos are no longer dark, but today I can’t seem to upload any images. Does anyone know what’s going on? Thanks!

    The glitch is resolved but the pictures do not return to normal by themselves… so anybody who uploaded in the past week I would suggest you upload them again… or they’ll stay dark. I did that to mine and its back to normal now…
