'HTTP error.' with big images and did not 'crunch'

  • Hello, I am facing ‘HTTP error.’ when uploading bigger images (around 16MB).

    It freezes at 100%, then ‘HTTP error’ will pop up. I still can see images in my library, but there’s not size options (Thumbnail – 150 x 150 e.g.) for that image.

    I can manually change the size after pasting on posts or pages from Advanced Settings, but it is quite bothersome.

    I tried adding
    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’32M’);
    into the bottom of wp-config, and deactivating all the plug-ins, but both did not work for me.

    I very much appreciate much your advice.
    Many thanks,

  • Why would you upload images that big? I would scale them down before uploading them with any image resizer. Unless you have a specific reason, there is not reason to upload images that large.

    Thank you for your reply.
    Because I wanted to keep the original quality of the images as much as possible. But maybe I should consider that way to solve the problem. So even it is written that 50MB is the limit, do 16MB images tend to cause problems?

    50mb is the total space for WordPress.com storage limit but are you talking per uploaded file or the total space allowed?

    I apologise for being this late to respond. I am not sure if you can still see this post or not, but I am talking about per uploaded file.

    You may want to contact your host about this but again unless you are allowing people to download those images I can’t imagine a reason to upload anything that big.

    Thank you very much. I will do so.
    Yes, actually those are the files for people to download.
