Troubleshoot Uploading Error

If you have problems downloading an image, try the following:

  1. For static images, the file must not exceed 20 MB and must be in JPEG or PNG format.
  2. If you publish an animated GIF, make sure it is less than 3 MB and does not exceed 540 pixels.
  3. Try saving a brand new version of the file with the photo/image application of your choice. This can sometimes help to solve coding problems that may be in the original file.
  4. We do not support CMYK files or other non-RGB image files, so save the image in RGB and try again.
  5. The largest image supported by most blog topics is 500 pixels wide and 750 pixels high. Respect this limit to avoid resizing your image.
  6. By clicking on an image in a photo message, you will get a larger version of the image, if available. This larger version can be up to 1280 pixels wide and 1920 pixels high.
  7. Upgrading to a larger version is only possible if the blog image does not have a clickable link to another website.
