    When I try adding an image to a post (through the "Add Media" buttons), it just freezes and doesn't even add the image.

    Any help on this?

    Do you get any Javascript error? Which browser do you use ?

    I'm having the same problem. It freezes on 'Create new thumbnails'

    It says 0% and stays there forever: Running...Please wait.

    I don't have any javascript errors. Im on wp 2.5 using either IE or Firefox, same result.

    Im on wp 2.5.1 using Firefox. Installed NexGen today: I managed to upload one image successfully; now it does the 0% for one or more file uploads

    More info on issue: I believe image file size is at least part of the issue (and/or local file size max settings):
    I discovered:
    all images are uploading to gallery directory, no matter the size;
    the thumbnail creation has hung for images w/ file size>400kb;
    loading one 75kb image works as expected;
    I have not investigated multiple file uploads with smaller file sizes

    If you have such memory problems , you should reduce the resolution or increase the memory_limit

    I have already set my memory limit to 20MB.

    How big of a file is too big? I've been trying to upload a 1.2MB file, and I've been unsuccessful.

    The GD (Graphic library) says about memory limit :

    Why does gd cause my PHP script to run out of memory?
    Most often, the problem is that the memory_limit parameter in php.ini is set to something very conservative, like 8M (eight megabytes). Increase that setting and restart the web server.
    Of course, opening truly huge images can cause real memory problems, if several are open at once. 8,000 pixels times 8,000 pixels times four bytes for truecolor equals a walloping 256 megabytes.

    So it's not the file size , it's the resolution which is important

    Hi Alex,

    FYI - PHP Memory LImit = 40M
    PHP Max Upload Size = 20M
    PHP Max Post Size = 8M

    I was only uploading one 1.2M file.

    Am I missing something?

    Is my english so bad ? Look here :

    http://alexrabe.boelinger.com/2007/06/08/whats-behind-tera-byte/

    I ran a 72 KB 3500×3500 JPEG and a 904 KB 3500×3500 image and both used up just under 62 MB of memory (61,392,088 bytes to be exact).

    My limits are the same as simonsopinion's, but it's hanging at the Create New Thumbnails screen when I upload one image that is 322x483.

    That is so small, it can't possibly put me over any limits. Any ideas?

    Hello,

    I have the same problem: when ik try adding an image to a post (through the "Add Media" buttons), it's not possible to place the image in the post. It is in the gallery but I can't do anything with it.
    I get a javascript error with it an I am using IE7. FF is no option because other users also use IE7 often.

    What can I do?

    I have the same problem .. creating thumbnails freezes at 0%. My image files are less than 100KB so the size is not the problem here. Did you all solve the problem ... how?

    I have that problem, too. Everything works fine on my local server, but online it won't work for images that exceed a certain size.
    My memory_limit is set to 40 MB, so that can't possibly be the reason.

    Example:

    Image 1 (doesn't work):
    1680 x 1031 x 4 = 6928320 ~= 6.61 MB

    Image 2 (works fine):
    1280 x 768 x 4 = 3932160 ~= 3.84 MB

    Now, they're both far below 40 MB - so what causes the first one to fail?

    -----
    Edit: The problem doesn't seem to be caused by the Nextgen plugin - I can't upload the first image using the WordPress image upload either. It won't create a thumbnail either.

    I'm having the same problem.

    When I add an image to a post or page using the Add Media button, I can get as far as the Insert Into Post button, and then the image load screen goes blank and hangs for all eternity.

    I can't tell you how frustrating this is!!!

    I think it has to have something to do with NextGen Gallery (I miss the Add Media function I had prior to installing NextGen, when things actually worked), but I'm nearly tearing my hair out trying to figure out what.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Kelli
