  5. 5. Example: on my Instagram account I want to change the profile photo I select a PNG file Upload and... nothing happens There's no error message. And my profile photo is the same. @Talotics 5
  6. 6. Tip: Error Message visible Using "Inspect Element" @Talotics 6
  7. 7. The tip is... if I do an "Inspect Element" I can see the error message I get the developer tools, And I go into network tab. When I edit profile photo here and upload a photo. I view the HTTP request to the server. And i can see an error message it says "Sorry this picture format isn't supported please try another picture in jpeg" @Talotics 7
  8. 8. This is a tactic that I use with social media sites and other web sites, all the time, because very often when they use javascript to communicate with the server, they do not show the error message on screen. @Talotics 8
