I have loaded hundreds of photos to the forum but just lately get loads of error messages, usually they go on after multiple attempts but today is worse than normal tried 10 times and error each time although oddly first one went straight on

We have particularly good broadband speed today and I am getting same problem on laptop with camera photos and iPhone

Is it just me?

When it happens to me I reduce file size and it pops straight on

funnily enough I have just done the same and it worked for me too, but I never had to before and wouldn't have thought the iPhone photos would be that big?

It happens sometimes with old photos, I take a screenshot of it and upload that, always works then.

not sure if the above link will work, but if someone technical can see the images, the first photo loaded fine at whatever size I took it at, the following 2 had to be reduced then uploaded very easily (y)

If I get an error it occurs after the file appears to upload. I find retrying the same file does not work, change the format or the size and usually goes through ok.

Presumably after the upload it's moving the file to a server location and/or converting format and that is when the error occurs :unsure:

Can view them.
When copying and pasting into Irfanview they're all around the same size (1333x1000Mpx - 400 to 500Kb).

I have been doing the same for a while, completely random which work and which don't. (n)

In case it helps those that know what they are looking for, this is the message I get (y)

sure it must just be a sizing issue, but odd that it is only recently a much bigger problem

It's been driving me potty. Same message. Only been happening in the last few weeks. Sometimes I've tried the same pic half a dozen times and then it'll suddenly work! Usually I've just given up.

I can see that there are some timeout issues with imagemagik I will investigate.

above is the actual image as on my laptop, with size details

upload_2018-7-26_16-16-58.png


by using above resize option and picking L it becomes this below, which I can then upload very easily


upload_2018-7-26_16-15-58.png


If I can find an easy way to resize on phone it will be OKish, although a PITA and only something that has recently happened

Hope there is a fix your end :)(y)

It would be a bit of a faff having to re size images, never had to do that before
The problem only started recently, so I’m guessing that something changed in the back end of the site

Testing testing....
No luck here either .:(
ok. I have just cleared the server log.

If you guys/gals can try again until you get an error then let me know. I can see what the server logs say about it.

I always use 'photo & picture resizer' app as a matter of course... probably due to personal parsimony being on a payg SIM... 1p/mb :eek:, so just in the habit of shrinking those 4mb photos to just a few kb :D.

Needless to say I can't recall having an issue with posting a photo.

I think the image size limit is 10Mb. I've just tried uploading a 13Mb image and it gave me the error message in post #12. If you are using a mobile phone it is sensible to reduce the file size first. On Android I use Photo & Picture Resizer and reduce the images to around 1600 pixels wide. This app has a logo of a blue square and two arrows. There are other apps with very similar names. I've tried many of them but found Photo & Picture Resizer the best. I don't think there is an iOS version though.

If you use Android I use this very simple two click resize app....

Not sure this is to do with file size as such, the photo @DavidG58 put up was only 3.6MB, most of the images I put up are just under 4MB. I did find one time it errored that I resized the image to about 300Kb and it still errored, changed format and ok.
