Thread: Can't post pictures all of a sudden

    Can't post pictures all of a sudden

    Same camera, same settings, same upload process and now I'm getting an error saying the maximum size for a pic "of this type" is 1200 x 0!

    Try logging out, clearing your SMC cookie, logging back in and then posting a photo here to test. Something is clearly amiss. I had an issue with this (briefly) awhile back and some cleanup helped fix whatever "bit got flipped".

    No can do. File size limit is 1200 x 0 for this file type which is jpg.

    PM Keith to see if he can determine, with or without Aaron's help, what the issue is. In the mean time, if you have a place to park photos that allows embedding, you can at least insert them in your build thread that way until the upload works for you again. That's what I did when I was having the issue I mentioned until it cleared. It's not the preferred way to do it because if the remote host goes away (IE like the Photobucket debacle) the photos leave with it, but at least you can share what you want to share visually while further investigation happens.

    Ok, thanks Jim! I will take a look at that, but I'll also try shrinking the pics a little and see if that helps.

    Bubbles the reluctant barn cat will be a regular (if uninvited) participant in my shop build. Charming in a nuisance kind of way.

    Sometimes when the server is busy it seems to be more persnickety on processing larger file sizes of photos.
