Cannot upload photos

This message from EF

The Dimension limits for this filetype are 800 x 600. We were unable to resize your file so you will need to do so manually and upload it again. Your file is currently 2592 x 1944.

I have never had such a problem before

The website can only resize so much (or used to). You're trying to upload more than 3x the target size.

You need to resize the photo to 800x600.

Re: Cannot upload photos

I noticed a similar issue the other day. It seems that the size limits may have been reduced

Re: Cannot upload photos

Then why does it say " we were unable to resize "? I tried with a 850 mal 650 and still was not able to upload. So does EF resize any pics?

I think it used to work if the upload was close. 800x600 does work, I just checked it.

Re: Cannot upload photos

All these " mods" should have to post a picture of themselves so as we know who we are dealing with. A bit of transparency here!

Re: Cannot upload photos

Well, a hat above animated sunglasses might cause a bit of overload.

Jagwaughs has taste (and attraction) however. As long as he doesn't ignite the cigar.

Seems EF does not resize photos. It's not that they are usable to resize

Tried to post a normal photo today as well - not accepted.
Give up - EF is hard work anyway sometimes, but we all have our limits.
