  • Please look at

    and also reduce the resolution of your images….

    i’ve looked at that article, tried all the tips therein, still having the same problem. tried phillip d’s suggestion, changed to php 5 (as evidenced in the settings posted above)…

    what else?

    there’s got to be a way to do this without adjusting the resolution. the whole point of installing this plugin in the first place was to not have to adjust the resolution. am i mistaken in my understanding that i shouldn’t have to do that?

    No, if you can’t increase the memory limit, you must lower the resolution

    how do i increase the memory limit? is there a step noted somewhere that’s not in the above linked article?

    No, it’s a server setting (php.ini) request this by your web hoster

    if you say so. i just don’t get how, if i’ve tried everything in your above-linked article and various user comments, run the script successfully, why this doesn’t work as it should.

    Please ask your Web hoster if you are allowed to change the php.ini

    i did. they won’t.
