That's a warning. The upload worked!

Salvatore - you are right- working. What is the upload limit then? My file was 15 MB and this message occurs!

So the issue is that AstroBin checks uploaded files to see if they are images. If the file is HUGE, this will kill the worker due to memory constraints. So now I've set it so if if the file is larger than 10 MB, AstroBin does not try to open it during upload, but only checks for the extension.

So for files above 10 MB you get a warning that says AstroBin could not verify the file, but it should work anyway.

So technically now you should be able to upload files up to 200 MB (not that I recommend that tho smile )

Thanks Salvatore! To save time, space and money my files are in compress formats and not bigger then 2000 pix wide ( except special mosaic etc). It helps not only to upload them but also to see them ( by viewers).
Thanks for info, I hope it will work smile
Good day!

Yes, that's the main reason. Nobody wants to download a 100 MB PNG just to see the full resolution picture. It's great for archiving purposes but makes no sense for sharing, IMHO.
