I was trying to change a graphic (or page) to my comic, but I waited for 4 days and it still hasn't changed. What am I doing wrong?

There are a whole heap of threads about the image bug… You missed them all? o_O

Try saving it in a different format to what it currently is (png, gif, jpg) and re-upload it.

Oh. Well, i guess there's nothing I can do then (JPEG has crap quality and gif makes the colors all weird.)

Does anyone know when the bug is being fixed?

Ah, you don't quite know about image formats I see… ;)
Don't worry, not many people seem too.

The way you've done your art it could look perfectly fine all in vector and saved as a flash file, which uploads here fine ^_^
At lest for comic pages.

PNG24 is the format you use, and it's not for web images above a certain size. Sorry, but people don't realise it's not really a web compression format. The colours seem great because the images are pretty much not compressed at all. If you saved them as Jpegs at the same minuscule level of compression it'd have a similar files size and look the same pretty much.

PNG8 is a web format and compresses in exactly the same way to GIF pretty much, using from 1 to 256 colours. But even though it can do transparency, it can't do animation.

Jpeg is the BEST web format (currently) for complicated colour images. It gets great compression while keeping the complicated colours relatively undamaged, the way PNG8 and GIF can't (because they can't show many colours).

Your art has simple colour and a simple style. It would look great in the PNG8 or Gif formats, if you had a decent image editor. If you're using Windows paint, the formats are preconfigured in a terrible way. There are some good free image editing and creating programs out there, I advise you try some. Open Canvas and Gimp are very popular.

Also to note, you could change the extension to jpg without saving the image as a jpg, png, bmp whatever.

If you use Flash, yeah, Try saving it as a flash file and uploading it. It'll be a smaller size and look like it did when you made it ^_^
