Jasc Paint Shop Photo Album 5 - jpg uploads fail

I've developed a site which has a facility to allow the artist to upload jpg images of his paintings (php). He downloads his photos from his camera and sees them in Jasc Paint Shop Photo Album 5 - I assume this software puts the files on to his HD. He can't upload them - the script just hangs and fails with a whinge message. If he passes me the pictures, I can upload them no problem. He can upload images that didn't come off his camera via the software.

I can't suss what's going on. I tried suggesting he stops Zone Alarm but it made no difference.
Any ideas please?

Could it to do with the file types, or perhaps the size of the images taking too long to upload. What message does the PHP fail with ?

Ta. I don't think so. It's .jpg and in the region (typically) of 28mb. As I say, I have no trouble - but I get the file as an email attachment created by the Photo Album software and I have no trouble with it. I've asked him to email himself a file and see if he can upload it - it may indeed be filesize. Yes - when it's made into an email attachment the software must reduce the size. This could be it! I'll report back! Ta.

It wasn't filesize (the file was only 55k - well within th limit) but probably the format. I think he was renaming a non-jpg file as .jpg - whoops! Some education needed, but problem solved. Thanks for your help.
