I uploaded this image.
.
I took the picture in colour. I cropped and rotated it in colour. I saved it in colour. I uploaded it, it was approved, and it's black and white. Or grayscale. or whatever.

So, today, I recropped the original, and checked it before it was uploaded. Colour. I got an image decline message, and it's black and white.

What's going on? Why won't it upload in colour?

Some kind of new-fangled automatic badger detection?

What image software are you using for editing? Is it the same software you're using to just view the image?

Upload it to your gallery to see that all is as it seems. If it doesn't upload to your gallery in color...then I'd expect that you've got some issue on your end. It might be something as simple as picking the wrong file to upload.

All the other shots I uploaded in the same way came out in colour. the only thing I did differently with this one was that I rotated it.

Are you uploading the file in some unusual format which BGG might balk at? (For example: TIFF, or BMP)

What software are you using?

It's a jpeg, like the others I uploaded at the same time. I'm using Corel Phot Album 6.

I uploaded both versions to my gallery. The rotated one comes up as B&W. Weirdness.

Some image software algorithms discard the colour table information upon image rotation. That is dependent on the imaging software you use, though.

The weird thing is, the rotated picture is still in colour on my PC. It's only black and white once it's uploaded.
