|3. SSL connection available
| Not tested

Once you have reopened your browser, revisit this page and check that this warning has disappeared.
|4. HTML 5
| Not available
HTML 5 provides extremely rich user interface functionality including the ability to edit images directly in a web browser.
If this is highlighted here as an error, it is likely that HTML 5 is disabled in your browser or that your browser is not compatible with this website.
Chrome, Firefox and Opera are all recommended for this website. Internet Explorer version 12 and above also works ok.
Cookies are small textual bits of information which are stored to support functions that require persistence in your browser.
In this website, a unique identifier for your current session is stored. Without this, the website will not behave as expected.
This unique identifier is the only information that this website stores in a cookie on your computer and is completely anonymous.
If cookies are disabled, you can re-enable them in the administration pages of your web browser.
|6. Local Storage
Similar to the cookies, most modern browsers also allow the storage of more persistent information locally.
In order to optimise the performance of this website, an anonymised unique identifier for your computer is stored locally.
In addition, data that is currently being edited in this website, including photos (if applicable), is sometimes saved temporarily in the local storage on your computer.
Once this information is added or updated successfully on the server, the local information is removed.
If local storage is disabled, you can re-enable it in the administration pages of your web browser.
|7. Browser and version
| Not supported
Even now, not all web browsers are equal unfortunately. Some lack functionality, while others run slower than better designed browsers.
If your browser appears in orange, then most of the basic functionality in the website will work, though some tools, including photo cropping may not work as expected.
If your browser name appears in red, it may still work, it is just that it has not been as thoroughly tested as e.g. Chrome, Firefox or Opera.
Any of these three browsers are recommended for viewing this website and currently have over 90% market share. Internet Explorer version 12 and above also works ok.
Your timezone is used to localise system dates and times, which are stored in UTC. Check that the calculated timezone is correct.
If not, it is likely that the date and time on your computer are not configured correctly and should be corrected.
