There are several users recently reporting that they are unable to upload photos to their business listing in Google Places. The reports come via the Google Places Help forum and there are dozens of complaints in the past week.

The first recent complaint said:

Image uploads are broken. I have tried valid JPG images both from the web and my computer and they all show up as broken links.

Then we have several, "me too" posts, such as:

I am having the same problem. I have tried uploading photos from my computer as well as from my flickr stream and they all show up as broken links.

The thing is, I personally just tried it and it worked fine. No errors:

Google Places Photo upload

Maybe all these users are uploading them wrong? There are specific format requirements for photos, but can this many people not be following those requirements? Maybe it is a browser specific issue?
