SUPPORT Anybody else have issues uploading pics?

#1
I'm usually able to upload pics directly from my phone and it would just resize itself. First time since the last forum upgrade that I got an error saying "cannot upload, file too large".

Anybody else have any issues that didn't before? You can try posting pics here if you wish.

This what happened when I tried to upload a test picture from my phone: Screenshot_20180930-092157.png

I had so much trouble with this problem that regardless of the size of the Images I was dealing with... unless I ran them through the Linux "Converseen" Bulk Re-Sizing Application... nothing would go through. When the file size used was JPEG vs. PNG format and when I kept the image size between 300-500 KBytes... EVERYTHING went through after that. I'm not sure which comparable Windows Application is one that performs Bulk Shrinks like Converseen does... but for any Linux Users on GMTN that use either APT vs. YUM for their File Installer... here is the Code String to enter into your Terminal to easily install this nifty and useful thing:

sudo apt install converseen

... or

sudo yum install converseen

This happened to me last night, but I thought the issue was on my end
somehow. Wasn't able to upload new pics, but when I tried older pics that had successfully uploaded in the past, they wouldn't take either.

Had some other network issues going on at the same time, so figured that was related...

Well, I guess I'm not the only one then, especially since you tried re-uploading a previous pic that did upload. I just tried that too and it gave me the same message.

Guess it's Jimmy time.

Moose,
Make sure the pic files you're trying to upload are smaller then 7Mb
in size. I had the same issue today but I was able to Reduce the Image Size in Photoshop. I noticed the original image was only 72 dpi but the size was 45" wide!!!!!!! so I reduced the size down to 8" wide and the dpi to 125 and that worked.
Good luck,
Peter

I know that. It's just that the forum software is supposed to reduce it automatically. For the longest time I was reducing them and it was a major complaint that pics couldn't be uploaded directly from phones but after the last upgrade, we could. Now it's back to how it was before.

That's not always the case, if the file is too large for the server to upload and handle (file size limits), then it can't even process some images that are too large.

Otherwise, I don't see any issues with uploading.

Strange as I tried re-uploading a pic I had uploaded previously exactly the same way and it's telling me to go pond sand. Maybe limits weren't working?

Thanks!! Now I can get back to posting more pics than words :celebrate:

P. S. Can we get something done for the pictures uploading tilted to the side. I have tried rotating them manually so they upload properly with no luck 😢. Thanks 👍🏻
