    When uploading an image I am finding larger ~1MB size images are failing, but I don't know why. It was fine in 3.4.x and earlier.

    I uploaded a video to show this, I had plugins off during the process...

    The image is a normal JPG and appears to save, not sure if the 'crunching' bit works in this new version after this error.

    Have you tried both upload choices, the browser and the multi file loader?

    I turned off all my plugins and then it worked. I have been turning them on again, slowly but surely, and am so far still in luck. Will post again when I find the culprit.

    So far, the plugin that messed up media uploads and library display is Sell Media from Graph Paper Press. I've tried enabling and disabling it several times and am getting consistent results. Once it's off, everything seems to work fine.

    In the Media section is just gets stuck crunching and shows no error, although the file shows up in the uploaded files list okay.

    If I upload manually it just stops on a blank white page.

    I have the same problem - firefox, safari, chrome - then I realized, like cbh, I do have the sell media with GPP. So when I deactivated that - the photos showed up. Thanks cbh!

    Getting the same error. Rolling back my update. http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.4.2.zip

    I'm also getting this error, though the images do appear in the media library. They don't, however, appear in the Insert Media window, which appears empty. I've turned off ALL plugins and switched to the TwentyTen theme. The problem isn't resolved.

    I reverted to 3.4.2 and things are no working again.

    Same problem here. Using iPad/Safari and Windows 7/Chrome. Also, it doesn't work using the iOS app.

    Despite the error, the image has still uploaded but IT HASN'T PROCESSED SIZES. So, when I add the image as a thumbnail from the Media Library, the full size image is displayed in the Featured Image meta box. Which obviously is not what should be happening.

    Okay will do.

    But Tom Lynch (and others), try this:

    • Deactivate all plugins
    • Re-install WordPress
    • Re-activate plugins one-by-one

    Worked for me. Images now upload without error and are processed correctly to produce Large, Medium and Thumbnail versions.

    @lukejanicke I have tried this and it doesn't fix it but the issue is identical to that which you describe!

    I just tried a reinstall of WordPress and disabling all the plugins twice, it still doesn't work for large images or those with certain characters in the name. Please can I get some help as this has been going on for ages and I have tried everything I can think of.

    Just updated wordpress and tried to upload pics to my first post. Received this error. Looks like a real winner of an update guys.

    How about a little more error detail beyond "An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later."

    Jan - That seems counter intuitive.

    I was able to fix my issue by switching over to Firefox. Why the interface changed when switching from chrome to Firefox I don't know. Firefox used the old interface which worked. Hope this helps others who find this post with the same problem ( which is likely since it comes up #1 on google when searching the error produced ).

    @Zane stop being antagonistic towards the community, it won't help anything.

    @kmessinger - I am not sure, so busy I haven't had time to look. I will have another look soon.

    Sorry, I was a little annoyed that such a big release would have such an apparent issue.

    Did you try a different browser?

    I'm having the same problem in both Chrome and Firefox.
    The work around that works for me is using the Insert from URL option in the Insert Media window.

    Hi there,

    Your problem may not because of all your plugin. I faced the same problem, but when i go to see in media sector I can see many images was uploaded.

    Please go to see your images file uploaded in your media sector. That would be there.

    Same problem here. Yesterday I had no problem, but when I upload a picture, I get the error: "An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later."
    Although the file is uploaded successfully my media library is blank. The only plugin I installed lately was Counterize, but I have disabled it completely.
