Trouble uploading pics

Postby happyfriggincamper » Mon May 22, 2017 8:17 pm

Hey site admins,

I'm trying to put up a report {from my mobile) with some photos via the attachment tool, but I'm getting random results in doing so. Inconsistent upload success where I get advised that the photo exceeds the 5MiB size limit, yet all photos are well below.

Have tried closing the page, reopening, restarting a new topic and retrying the attachments - sometimes they upload, sometimes they don't and give the 5MiB limit message. Have even put the photos through a compressor app to reduce the size and keep getting the same inconsistent success.

Are there any known issues or is it likely with the user?

Cheers, Chris

Sorry I can't help you out there Chris, surely someone on the site may know.. maybe send a PM to one of the Mods or fishingvic itself.

Upload speed from mobiles can cause problems , easier to just email it to yourself and reduce it that way. Re-save the new pic.

As mentioned, try re-sizing the images so they are web-friendly. (ie: smaller in size)

I have this issue too. I crop them as much I can and it solves it for me

Thanks all, got them up for my recent Yarra trout report. Had to reduce them twice to be under 1mb each via a phone app. Issue bypassed.
