image size for upload was created by mac.alter
I posted in the Help for 2.1.18 forum regarding JSON error when uploading an image. Franz Frese says he sets size at 500MB. I use the free PhotoscapeX (Mac) to capture/dowload impages and edit. I resize to 900px height and let it proportion width. I save as PNG. Should I switch to JPEG with quality about 80-90%? My images are mostly docs from Ancestry, headstones, captured images of people/places (with Mac it's very easy to CMD+SHIFT+4 to capture.

Do you know its size in kilobyte? Do you know of any upload limit in kilobytes?
If the file size was too large, then using image compression might make it fit.

But: you won't really know what's wrong until you inspect those pesky XHR request/response headers.
So I'd advice to go back to the developer tools of your browser. Use a less favourite one if you must, if that helps.

I mean, you did manage to upload pictures before, or not?

...Franz Frese says he sets size at 500MB....
I never said.

I said: The largest image used at my site is 500 KiloByte (not Megabyte).

So even on a slow connection, you won't waste time waiting for a presentation of images and also the calculation of thumbs on the server saves ressources.

And I upload my files with a sftp app (that automatically synchronizes)

Control panel -> Server information

What values do you have for post_max_size and upload_max_filesize?

Wasn't intending to misquote you. I took that as a suggested size which was helpful. PhotoscapeX does nave option to see size so am watching to see what mine are. And trying JPG vs PNG and vice versa.

In the Windows File Explorer (MacOs: Finder) you should be able to see the size.
Right-click: properties??
Show folder as list with attributes?

The image is 1.8MB, the lower end of my headstone images, all which upload.

???

So I can imagine the file is not an image - file (only has that extension). Perhaps you can mail the file, to have a look at that to reproduce the error.
or disk limit at provider is reached, ...

One point three gigabyte? That's plenty...
With this ruled out  you definitely need to look at those headers.

Hint: first open the dev tools of the browser. Then get to the dialog. Clear the list of network calls, then hit the submit button. This limits the list of calls to inspect.

I just upgraded MacOS to Sonoma which is a very big leap (about 3 generations) so will need to figure out Safari and will try again looking for XHR error. Of note, the FAQ should state what browser the instructions are written in, regardless of OS.

Kritik zurück: Dieser Beitrag bringt dich und uns (nach meiner Meinung) bezüglich der Lösung des Themas kein Stück weiter.

You should optimize your images before uploading. Convert them to JPEG with a quality setting of 80-90%. This will significantly reduce file size while maintaining decent image quality and for jpeg compression you can use online application such as jpegcompressor.com/ It compresses images efficiently with maintaining image quality.

I've not had time to try it yet, but I wonder if WebP image files are compatible with web trees?

This is a relatively new image format, that allows users to compress the weight of images, without losing quality. Important if, for example, you are adding the image of a Will or similar, with quite detailed text which can be difficult to read in a jpeg image.
