When I upload a group of observations (>10, < 30) I often find that one or more of the observations becomes “corrupted”. Specifically, the observation seems to become disconnected from the photo. As I add data to the observations, in the upload screen more images become corrupted in this way. If I finally go ahead and upload the observations. A record is created with no image. If I try to add the image to the observation later it doesn’t stick. The image uploads but then doesn’t display.
The uploaded observations end up like this
If I try to add an image to these observations several days later it still doesn’t stick! the image appears to upload successfully but then doesn’t display.
I have tried deleting the observation and starting again but once an image becomes tainted like this I don’t seem to be able to get it to upload at all.
