A few members, including myself, have noticed that we can no longer upload our photos like we used to. Resizing seems to work, but I'm just wondering - why the change?

Edited to add: the maximum file size still says no limit, though. Hmmm, maybe this is just a glitch?

I'm not currently experiencing any issues.  Could you please let me know the following info for the file you are trying to upload?  File type, file size and image dimensions.

Also, if you have a moment, could you email me the image, so that I might test it?  jean@craftster.org

Got it!  Yep, it's just too big for the system.

On the upload screen, it's:
Quote
Select the photos you wish to upload from your computer:
Important: Your photo must be less than 2MB in size or it will not upload.

That one you sent is 2.65 mb.

We resize images down to 500-pixels wide, but that one is 4000-wide to start with, so it would probably make it look fairly gross, if our system took a hack at squishing it down that much.  Try resizing it a bit first prior to upload.

I realize it's bigger than 2mb, but one of the last ones I've successfully uploaded was 2.97. I thought maybe that bit of info was just out of date... or maybe the system has just recently cracked down on larger images.

Oh, really?  I've never been able to upload the huge ones.  I don't think we've made any changes to the Picture Hosting recently, though, so maybe yours were just slipping in previously.

Or you hacked us. Cheesy  Something you want to chat about?  Hmm...? Cheesy

heh heh... *blush* Actually, I've never resized pictures for craftster... it just seemed to always take my big ones. I guess I'm off to learn how to do that!  Tongue
