Reducing the dimensions of the image files.

I'm getting errors loading photos into PowerGallery. I have each file under 8MB (2 or 3mb) but now I get the error "You may be able to fix this by reducing the dimensions of the image files."

What is the dimensions I should upload the photo's?

Thanks,

Dan

Hi
I think you will find theres a 2mb (someone will correct me if wrong) on file size uploads in PHP.

Try reucing the size as 8mb is very big for an image on the web.

Just reduce the dimensions down to a size under 2mb and see how you get on.

Sometimes a server has a hard time working with a large image from a digital camera, they are usually really large in dimensions like 3000x2000. To get around the issue, you will have to resize them to something smaller such as 1280x1024 so the server can better process them. This would also decrease the filesize to get around the 2mb (assuming that is your setting) upload limit. But the error as indicated is due to the image dimensions no the file size.

Thanks Mike, Justin,

I'll give it a try. These are probably pretty large in dimension since they were taken by a professional photographer.

Thanks,

Yeah, the I bet those images are 12+ megapixels and really large in size.

Still Receiving Error Message

I get this error when I add images with the Server Upload Function. I can add these photos successfully with the "Single Image Upload"
ERROR: 16 images failed to upload. You may be able to fix this by reducing the dimensions of the image files.

I have 16 images at:
72 dpi
1024x863 dimensions
850 KB File size each (approximate)

Is there a maximum dimension size I should be below? Maybe too many photos?

Thanks

Yeah unfortunately it seems like your server doesn't like processing more than 1 image at a time due to resources or configuration or something. Those images are already pretty small in size, so I don't know if that is the issue anymore. Your best bet is probably uploading them individually at this point.

Found the Issue

It turns out there was an apostrophe in the File Name. This caused the error. Any special character in the file name, Title or Description causes issues with either Server Upload or the display of files.

Thanks for your help on this.

Interesting, glad you figured out what it was. I will make a note to look into that and see if there is anything we can do to automatically handle it in the future.
