DixieFlyer has had recent trouble creating photosets on several occasions. Without getting similar results to decipher the mystery I've been trying various browsers, devices, you name it, etc for clues.

Anyhow, in trying to figure out a bush with bean pods yesterday I was looking at the settings in my Android. I wanted to use the highest 64MB capture for wide-angle instead of macro because I do not carry readers without a pack, so it is pure luck if anything is in focus...

Camera > Settings > Picture Formats
Has an option for high efficiency pictures (heic). This grasped my attention because in using Android recently to upload, I've found that you could grow a garden in the time it takes to upload photos due to image sizes vs when I previously used mobile upload in Big Bear 2015.

Last month I added the .heic format by request of a soaring fliver. Which was a pita because it is an apple format. Various developers' cite the key as converting to .jpg on the fly because no browser supports it natively yet. I invested a day into it without luck due to equipment+software limits. About a week later I envisioned an obstacle course workaround that almost worked but required a juggling act.

Heading across the beautiful valley of the sun I was doing test shots of an apple, the dashboard, etc at the bazillion stoplights. Adding and deleting photos of various ratios and formats to a photoset, I stumbled upon what seemed like the issue DixieFlyer was experiencing. The thumbnails did not match the full version which was perplexingly what I deleted at the previous stoplight but later figured was cached by the browser because another device had the correct view. Apparently, a backup miracle was on the horizon. On route to the next stoplight, a message arrived from astrobrewer describing the same issue in mega detail.

Long story short, by late afternoon I had a live fix to evolving cache techniques. Worked flawlessly on several tests but might need more work because it is never this easy.


Hike
Air quality was bad, South Mountain was visible but the White Tanks were a hint of a mirage.

Gnats we're not an issue in the breezy morning air filled with hellos.
