First I want to thank you for your time and energy in trying to figure out a solution to the problem. Second as in most cases the issue is not always with the program, but with the user, I have discovered the the problem was one of corrupt images. When I dumped the file and reset the connection, i then uploaded new clean images with no problem. I am trying to recreate the issue so that I can let you know how the image corrupted the program, I have a feeling that you stated the obvious "The line of code generating the error is when it's trying to read in one of your images. Can you try using another image (maybe one you've uploaded successfully before) and see if that works?" So thanks again for everything and for your great products I think I've got almost all of them.
