Hi there,

Please don't cross-post. Posting your message once is more than enough.

That said, temporarily remove the Catch block so the application throws a real error. Then you can what the exact error message is, instead of "File could not be uploaded".

Maybe it's a security problem where the webserver account isn't allowed to write to your UploadedImages folder.
