Maybe the file size is too large? I think Ive had the same problem before, if only I could remember what I did to fix it lol

Hi check the files DPI as site only accepts 72dpi and also reduce size as every time I try loading an image over 1000pix at the longest dimension get the same message.

with a 60 d even a jpeg file is going to be very large

Actually, resolution is irrelevant. But I would suggest from a PC one uses the .JPG format, and there's a 2Mb cap on files (IIRC).

However, there is also a limit on the server space available to users for their images - which increases as your post count increases (see here (http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/forums/faq.php?faq=levelsranks#faq_memberlevels)).

As with all images uploaded to the Internet; best practice is to optimise before doing so - I would also suggest that anything larger than 1920x1080 is probably wasted in terms of online viewing at this point in time, and mean monitor resolutions.

Clearly, uploading for printing is another kettle of frogs. ;)

thanks for your ideas, the file has been saved as a jpeg. 460 x 700 pix and 123kb at 72dpi.:confused:
