Topic: Too large to create thumbnail


I have a problem regarding uploading a image to an existing gallery.
I keep getting the following error:

"imagename.jpeg is too large to create thumbnail in gallery.php, line 774"

I made sure that the memory_limit is set to the same number as i find in my phpinfo.php

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Re: Too large to create thumbnail

How big is the image in pixels? Does it need to be this big? Have you tried a smaller one?

JPEG images are compressed. In order to create a thumbnail the server has to expand the image to its full size, then resize it and then compress it again. The full size of your image may be too large for your server's memory.
