When I tried to upload a picture out of my device moments before, it worked for me. (New topic, re., text, upload).

Maybe, your picture is too big?
Can you describe what you did?

The only allowed attachments are those images with the following extensions:
gif
jpeg
jpg
png
tga
tif
tiff

You should see that extension once you picked the file to upload. If it doesn't have any of the above, it'll fail.

It is possible that your tablet picked a thumbnail instead of the actual picture (which causes it to fail), this often happens when you use the gallery to pick a picture.
Using a filemanager and browse to pictures, then screenshots or "The Sims Photos" will allow you to pick the actual file.
