I have read about this error now on numerous forums and just can't seem to resolve the issue.
When trying to upload an image the image uploads but freezes during "crunching" and then a red http error appears. When I go to the gallery and view the uploaded image its size is 0 x 0 and I am unable to change any of the sizing preferences.
The part that confuses me is that this error does not occur if I upload a screen shot on my mac or a picture taken in photo booth on osX. This makes me think that something in the metadata of normal photos taken with a camera is conflicting in someway with the wordpress site/uploader.
I really am new to blogging and websites so am totally learning as I go along. Any help with this would be much appreciated. The strange thing is that this doesn't occur if using wordpress.com which is where we originally started before realising how limited it can be compared to wordpress.org so moved.
I look forward to your responses.
