Check the size of the picture. If it's over 2 megabytes, you will get this error. You may have to re-size it.

Hi, I have the same problem, can't upload my pictures because they are to big.
How do you resize your pictures?
Is that something you do on your computer or on your camera?

Kind regards,
Dirk

Hi Dirk, there are a number of free programs you can download. I use FastStone Photo Resizer. Very easy to use and works a treat. It has quite a few other capabilities you can muck about with as well. Good luck  :gl2:
Cheers, Val

Any of your major image editing software should allow you to resize jpegs - Paint.Net, Photoshop, Gimp etc all allow you to save at a certain quality level.

It is just a case of selecting the right quality level (ie lower) to shrink the size.

You don't need a photo resizer specially to do the job if you already have a suitable image application.
