Uploading your images using the online uploader is a simple process. There are three different uploading options which should suit a wide variety of computers and internet connections. Note: If you are looking for technical support with uploading, please view the image uploader technical issues section of this page.
Clicking on the “Upload” option in the main menu will take you to the easy uploader best suited to your computer (either ActiveX or Java). From here you can select your destination album and alter your upload settings.
By default the vast majority of visitors will be automatically directed to our ActiveX or Java-based upload page. Whichever page you use, the process is the same:
Your photos will then be uploaded. This process is often almost too quick for you to see, but for larger photos or slower connections you may see a blue bars indicating your progression through the files.
To remove an image from the upload queue, click the “Remove” icon. When the process is complete you will be taken to the “My Albums” page to see your newly uploaded photos.
If you are using a browser that is not supported or are having other technical difficulties, you may be automatically taken to the Simple Uploader application. You can also select the Simple Uploader at any time from the right side of the Upload page. To use the Simple Uploader:
Your photos will be uploaded. When the process is complete you will be taken to the My Albums page to see your newly uploaded photos.return to top
How to Import Photos
The Media Cloud Importer lets you easily import multiple photos from social media and cloud services to your Rite Aid Photo account.
Note for Flickr users: To import photos from your "Photostream" please first organize them into Photo Sets, which will then appear as Albums during the photo import process.
Note for Instagram users: The Instagram service does not have albums. All of your Instagram photos will be displayed, and you can then individually select them for import.return to top
Upload time for photos can vary significantly depending on the size of your image(s), the number of images in the upload batch, and the speed of your internet connection. In general if you have a high-speed cable or fibre internet connection you can expect that each picture will take from 45 seconds to 2 minutes to upload.return to top
The MyRiteAid Photo Center supports the following file types: .jpg, .gif, .tif, .bmp, and .png.
You can upload 100MB of photos at a time, and each photo has a maximum file size of 10MB.
This site prohibits the uploading of adult or offensive content. RiteAid reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine whether any use by you of the service is prohibited or otherwise violates this policy.return to top
Uploading images should be a quick, flawless process. If you are experiencing any technical difficulties while uploading please use the Simple Uploader and check the following topics.
Please make sure you have turned off any programs that are designed to block unwanted website activity, such as spyware prevention, ad blockers, and firewalls. Reload the page when you are done.
You may need to update your Java software to the most recent version. Please visit www.java.com to download the latest Java program. We recommend uninstalling all previous Java versions before downloading the latest version.
You are probably experiencing some difficulty with MyRiteAid Photo Center’s cookies. Please set your browser's security to "Always allow session cookies". You may also need to change this setting in your personal firewall software. For more details on this process, please read the help section on Caching and cookies.
If you are experiencing ActiveX (Internet Explorer) difficulties with the Easy Uploader, please consider adjusting your browser’s security settings to “Medium”. For details on this process, please read the help section on ActiveX security settings.
If you are on a Corporate Network or are behind a Corporate Firewall, then you may be restricted from using applications that utilize ActiveX controls. Only your Network Administrator can control configuration changes to the corporate firewall. If the Easy Uploader fails to connect and upload images in this environment, your Network Administrator will need to assist you. The browser-based Basic Uploader will still work.
If you are experiencing problems with installing or using the Easy Uploader on your personal network then you may need to disable banner/skyscraper ads in your personal firewall program.
At this time, our services work best with .jpg (JPEG) files, which is often the default file type for digital photos. If you are attempting to use a different file format you may experience difficulties with the Uploader. There are many different programs that will convert image files, including Microsoft Paint, GIMP, Photoshop, and PaintShopPro. Using one of these or a similar program you can open your original image file, “Save As” (likely in the main menu), and select “.jpg” or “JPEG” as the file type.return to top
