in reply to Uploading pics to ldap through webapp

Are you sure that the jpeg that you are sending really is a jpeg?

Jpegs start with the characters "JFIF" while Gifs start with the characters "GIF".

Your error message suggests that your jpeg starts with "G:" (0x47 0x3a)

    I finally got it to work with just GD::Image->new($photo). I don't know why I didn't try that to begin with :-)

    I looked at the data and it sure enough starts with 'JFIF'. Of course I'm able to view the jpgs in any graphic editor that I tried. I even tried to 'save as...' another jpg in case the files were corrupted. I have tried dozens of jpgs all with the same result. None have worked so I doubt it's a problem with the files.

    That's interesting that the 'starts with' translates into 'G:'. That is the drive that I'm pulling the images from and if I try pics from my H drive, the error changes to 0x48. So apparently, $q->upload('photo') returns the filename. So why does newFromGif() return an image, but not newFromJpeg() when the documentation describes them as similar functions?
