    I am trying to get the barcode posted online for a group I created. I save it as a PNG file on the BB and email to myself. Then when I try to upload it, the file is somehow corrupted and isn't viewable.

    The file is fine on my computer, but won't go on the internet. I've tried Flickr, Photobucket, and attaching it to a post here in CrackBerry (including this one, to show you what it's doing).

    Anyone else having this problem with a group barcode?

    I know what you mean, they're not working for me either.

    Downloading the barcode to your computer and opening it works though.

    You can't even view the barcode in a web browser, it says it contains errors.

    Try encoding the file in Base64.

    Right, already tried both of those (as indicated in my original post).

    The upload fails and I get similar error messages telling me there is something wrong with the file.

    How would I do that?
