And/or I am trying to upload a photo from my computer to the Fieldwire Web App in a task but I keep getting this error message: "FAILED WHILE UPLOADING TRY AGAIN"

The iCloud error message means that the selected photos are stored on iCloud - the photos will need to be saved from iCloud onto your mobile device, and then you can upload from your device to the Fieldwire Mobile App:
The "failed while uploading" error message means that there is a local with your browser that is stoping the photo from uploading.
