    I tried clicking on Create Album, but am unable to click on the MobileMe icon. It shows up gray and is not clickable. I can click on all the other icons. I'm signed into MobileMe by the way. The weird part is that I created an album about a week ago and it's working fine. Anyone else have this problem? Can you only create one mobileme gallery?

    Maca, I have had this problem before and my best guess would be just to try tomorrow

    I tried starting one about a week ago and couldn't. It just wouldn't load so I went to bed and tried it at work the next day on the same browser and computer and it worked

    My guess is just another MobileMe error at the moment which shouldn't shock anyone

    Has anyone ever had this problem. I am using PC Safari to access Me. Previously when I create an album in Photo, I could then upload a number of pictures at once, by selecting a bunch and then doing the upload. It will not let me do that now. It only allows me to upload one photo at a time. Any ideas?

    Yes, I am having this problem too. Not only that, but when I choose one at a time but continue to add more photos, once they are uploaded not all of them are there but some of the ones that are there are duplicates! I've tried several times to make sure it wasn't a mistake on my end, but it happens every time for me. I also can't get my albums to even load in Firefox. When I click the gallery icon in MobileMe I get the spinning circle. It's been like this for a couple of weeks that I've noticed....

    same situation, Safari on a PC, rather annoying. I used to workaround of emailing them to the automated e-mail address thingie that you can set up as an option in the album. Sending batches of 20 or so... seems to update after 3 mins or so..... hope this helps :(

    I'm also suddenly having this issue, can create a mobileme album on and it will show up and work with iPhoto, but when i try to create the mobileme album in iPhoto itself the MobileMe icon is grayed out. ?????:(

    Same issue here. But it happened right after I've force-quit iPhoto. I had just created one iPhoto MobileMe album before. When I restarted iPhoto, the MobileMe Album was greyed. Even after I restarted my Mac. Any solution so far?

    I had this problem, then realized it happens when you have a mobileme album selected. Select an album in iphoto instead, then your mobileme icon will no longer be greyed out when adding an album. I guess that is because you can't create a new mobileme album *from* a mobileme album. The interface needs to be a bit more informative of the problem.
