The maximum Image file size is set to 2MB currently - I have no idea what a good limit would be - but I increased it to 8 for now.
BTW your image compression ratio is horrible. I loaded the same Image using GIMP and exported it again only to end up with a 5th of the size.
1. Actual file size is 71kB (not MB) for the original image
so there should be no issue whatsoever with that. But why does it fail at 1190px width
when 800px succeeds?
2. I perform image editing in FastStone Image Viewer
, that's the only application that I can use while keeping my sanity. It does have three compression options for PNG but the other two yield even higher file size. It's strange that a smaller image size yields a higher file size but there's nothing I can do in that regard - I tried GIMP once and there will never be a second time. Of course, one can choose JPG over PNG but I prefer clarity - that is, lossless compression.
I still think there is a image size
(not file size) limit in place that declares uploaded files as invalid when crossed. I tried the 1190px image again just now and the same error popped up.
The way I see things, the board should accept any image size for upload and - when upload finished - create a thumbnail of a reasonable size that, when clicked, should open the real/original image in a new tab (preferrably) or window. I don't know how the board/theme works right now but it seems to request the original file over and over again - hence the large upload size - and then fail to process it. Or something.
I'm really sorry for being such a pest, it is not in the slightest my intention.
If any of you - JoeDF or nnnik or any other admin - would like to provide me with an e-mail address in private, I'd send you the original image so you could perform some tests yourselves, preferrably in the QtWeb browser (which is, as mentioned before, portable so it wouldn't mess up your systems).
