creating image folder on hard drive and uploading photos

Created jpg and png images for uploading, placed them in a folder on hard drive in Dreamweaver. Browse to the image and ask PowerStore to create item and is says to find a correct image to upload. These items are correctly created, how do I get PowerStore to upload?

Most likely the PHP server has a configuration setting that is causing the image upload to fail. Usually it is the memory limit.

try adding the following at line 1 of the Products insert page:

php:
<?php ini_set('memory_limit''256M'); ?>



to increase the availabel.


If the images you are selecting have a large file size, there may be other settings causing issues. See the following page for PHP server settings that will have an effect on large file upload:
wap_upload.asp?page=php2

Hi

as jason says Image size is important.

Remember the average viewer has an attention span of 15 seconds hence why we use thumbnails.

So there is no point is using Hi def 13mb images, better to use photoshop etc to batch reduce the images to the maximum size required for your site.

Standard resolution for designers now is 1280 * 1024 but your image area will be around 500 * 400 so I'd convert all images to 1024*768 in jpg which will reduce size radically.

It will reduce your memory overhead and save you oodles of time.

Also with all due respect to WA and others whilst resizing using PHP etc is ok it is not as good as using a decent photo editor with all the algorithms. So reducing the image size before uploading may improve the quality of your end images
