Problem uploading images

I am having problems uploading images to Wordpress. I have tried both the WP uploader and the browser but it gives me an error message every time. I have tried 3 browsers and both tthe WP uploader and the browser one but no go.
It will successfully upload small images around 50K but the ones I need to upload are around 1 meg. It seems to upload but I get the error message and instead of an image in my library, i get a faded out grey and black image. When I try to select and insert into the post, nothing happens. I have had the WP site connected to the domain for a couple of years and uploading is usually routine. Note I am not a coder but can follow simple instructions to make code changes if relatively easy.

are you sure you've not reached the maximum disk space in your hosting?

do you mean like the attachment?

try to <strong>resave </strong> the image using image editor (photoshop / gimp / etc) <strong>before uploading</strong>, as .jpg or .png file.
maybe the image format cannot be identified by wp uploader.

No, wasn't a file problem.

Hi ,

Can you let us know what is the error message you are getting ?


Toady51 comments:

Message was
"An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later."

It turns out that if I reduce the width of image for upload below 2000 pixels it seems to upload fine. Not sure what that is about but I can work with it.
