Struggling to upload Images to gallery

Post by imartin » Sun Oct 07, 2012 9:22 pm

I have recently been trying to upload an image to the gallery but keep getting the message
"Critical error
The size of file you have uploaded is too large (maximum allowed is 2048 x 2048)! "

Where am I going wrong. I have tried cropping the file and saving the file in its lowest possible .jpeg resolution.

Regards,

Ian

Try re-sizing it to a maximum of 1200 pixels wide (I keep mine to 800 x 600).
Not much point in having a higher resolution, as it won't fit on most screens.

Thanks Ross. I have sorted it now. Combination of being tired and not thinking straight. Was confusing image size with file size.
