Problems uploading to Gallery
As mentioned when I posted the maps for my contribution to the Community Atlas 500th-map contest, I intended to upload higher-res images of the various maps to the Forum's Gallery. However, I've run into serious problems trying to do so. I should say first of all that the maps were all jpgs, of maximum resolution 1920, and all well under the 5 MB limit each.
Initially, I tried to upload the whole set in one go, but the system sulked at me, and refused to cooperate with that at all. So I thought I'd try one at a time, and managed to load the first image fine, but when I tried loading the second, the system crashed, to the point where I couldn't even access the browser window. One restart later, another try, and the same thing happened again.
Then the system repeatedly failed to load the next image file, and while I was typing in these notes for a fresh Forum topic, the system glitched on me, I lost part of my draft, but the image that wouldn't load was suddenly in-place!
I've since tried - and repeatedly failed - to upload another image. The two images the system's struggled with were 2.98 MB (eventually loaded) and 3.32 MB (refused). Smaller than about 2 MB, and it all seems fine though, as files below that have gone through both before and after the problem files. Continued experimentation suggests the system isn't handling anything above 3 MB at all, and has only accepted that one file above 2.75 MB now.
Obviously, it's possible it could be my system, but I don't have any upload or download limits in-force, though it's conceivable the system's simply having an off-day.
By resizing the files to 2.7 MB or below, they now seem to upload OK.
If this is a general problem though, maybe the Forum guidelines about the maximum limits on Gallery images need revising, as 2.7 MB very obviously isn't 5 MB!
