[resolved] Upload tool rejects JPGs but FTP-Import OK (2 posts)

    Hi, Jacob. Wonderful plugin, donation follows as soon as I learn how powerful it really is.

    Found this asked, but not resolved, in the support files. The upload tool rejects my small (<300KB) JPGs with "ERROR: Unable to retrieve image size of foo.jpg"

    But when I FTP them in and Import, no problem.

    Files were created pn Photoshop CS6 for Mac via Save As/JPG.
    Just checked and was surprised to see format "Progressive" - I usually use Standard.
    Resaved as Standard; upload failed again.

    I'm baffled. Not too concerned because I was planning to FTP everything anyway, but I hate to leave a challenge unsolved.

    I can only agree!!

    The errormessage tells me that the php function getimagesize($file) returns false, what i interprete as it not being an image. See the doc on getimagesize().

    Did you try uploading a photo straight from the camera into the pc without editing to the site? Maybe the mac spoils it by stripping the metadata.
