Not able to upload photos on my discourse


(Adrianbblk) #1

Hi,

I have a photo of 2 Mb on disk and 4032x3024 (iPhone 8 size) and I’m not able to post this photo on my discourse because of this error:

Sorry, that file is too big (maximum size is 102400kb). Why not upload your large file to a cloud sharing service, then share the link?

How you can see, I increase the size to maximum size allowed. Even the max image megapixel is to 150.

Why it this happens?

I think you may have tweaked the wrong setting. “megapixel” refers to image dimensions, not image weight / filesize. Is it becoming an attachment OK? I do not know if the “max” values can be exceeded, but you could try.

There is some useful information in this topic

Have you tried uploading the image to try.discourse.com to see if it works there?

It’s working there. Why ? :man_facepalming:
