Fatal Error

I have been using the PowerGallery for a while now and just came across this error as I was creating a 6th gallery:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 5616 bytes) in /home/content/h/o/m/homelodge721/html/gallery/admin/common/functions.php on line 234

Whats up?

How can I have more memory and where is it indicated that there is a limited amount of memory allotted. I have been testing this program out on a site and wanted to use it in other projects but now I'm afraid that there might be some limitations.

In the PowerGallery | Help section it is stated "you can have as many galleries as you would like and can rename them" I have a Disk Space Allotment of 150,000 MB.

What do I need to do?

Thanks for your attention to my situation.

How large is the image you are trying to upload? To fix it, you can resize your image to smaller in size using your own program then try uploading that smaller sized image. Assuming this image is straight from a digital camera, can you give some specs like the image dimensions, megapixeld, camera, etc?

There are 9 images each ranging from 328kb to around 524kb. I haven't had any problems in the past, as I have one gallery that has 52 images and another with 35 so it hasn't been an image size issue, the images in the galleries are around the same in size.
I work in Photoshop to size all images and have not had any problems in the past. The error "Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted" that's only 64mb as I stated above I have 150,000 mb on this server, so it seems that there is a memory cap somewhere. I really need to fix this.

I just deleted a gallery and tried to create a new one and I get the same error message.

are you optimizing your images in PS? It won't fix the gallery problem you are having, but will help with general file sizes.

Do you get the memory error after creating a gallery or when uploading an image?

The PHP memory error isn't related to your disk space, it's something different. The line of code generating the error is when it's trying to read in one of your images. Can you try using another image (maybe one you've uploaded successfully before) and see if that works?

I would also try saving the image as optimzed from photoshop to see if that makes a difference. I haven't really seen this issue before, but it could be something with the image itself that PHP is erroring on.

First I want to thank you for your time and energy in trying to figure out a solution to the problem. Second as in most cases the issue is not always with the program, but with the user, I have discovered the the problem was one of corrupt images. When I dumped the file and reset the connection, i then uploaded new clean images with no problem. I am trying to recreate the issue so that I can let you know how the image corrupted the program, I have a feeling that you stated the obvious "The line of code generating the error is when it's trying to read in one of your images. Can you try using another image (maybe one you've uploaded successfully before) and see if that works?" So thanks again for everything and for your great products I think I've got almost all of them.
