    Seems like I've seen a lot of people comment on this and I'm having the same issue. When I try to upload pictures it says my picture is too large for the server. Help please?:)

    I have noticed that any pic that is 2MB or more is rejected, but any pic <2MB is uploaded. In order to get those >2MB to upload, I take a screen shot which drops it below the 2MB, so it will then upload.

    I never used to have this issue. Seems like the past couple of days everyone is saying the same thing.

    I never had to before, I didn't realize cropping would work at first. I thought it wouldn't let me upload anything.

    Thanks for starting this thread and all the details!!

    I'm surprised by this. I have it setup so that we accept images up to 10mb, but we'll resize them automatically if they are above 1500 pixels tall/wide.

    We did some server upgrades the other day, so that might be the problem. I'll look into it!!!!
