Photo Upload Problems
This morning I deleted more than 100 FAILED photo uploads from the website.
When I could get some information on the file and could see how large they are (and who uploaded them), THEY ARE HUUUUGE! This isn’t a problem a few of you are having, it’s a problem MANY of you are having.
A file size in the HUNDREDS of KILOBYTE (KB) is plenty large enough. A file size in MULTIPLE MEGABYTES (MB) is many, many times larger than it needs to be to display well on ANY screen. The little screen capture image here is only 14 KB.
If you try to upload a photo and it fails, you need to figure out how to SCALE your image to make it SMALLER. This is going to be a little bit different on each phone and camera and you may have different tools on your computer than I do, so, unfortunately, I can’t tell you exactly what you need to do.
While I can *sometimes* fix a failed photo (if enough of it has loaded to be recognizeable as an image), it takes time and I may not have that time to do it. I made time this morning ONLY because I was awake at 4 AM and couldn’t fall back to sleep. Please DO NOT depend on me.
