I want to upload a picture to one of my questions, but I keep trying different forms of the picture, but none of them work.

Failed to upload image; the format is not supported

I have tried PNG and JPEG. What formats are acceptable?

    What happens when you try uploading? (What do you mean by none of them work?) – WELZ Jun 13 '18 at 14:27

    images with http link are not supported. – Nog Shine Jun 13 '18 at 14:44
  • What's the size of the image? There's a 2 mb limit. – Catija Jun 13 '18 at 15:21
  • @NogShine Thanks, I just needed to save the image instead of using the link – PotatoLatte Jun 13 '18 at 15:22
  • @Catija when the image is over 2 mb it shows a message that it's over 2 mb. – WELZ Jun 13 '18 at 17:04
  • @WELZ it doesn't always... I had it giving me a generic error message the other day when trying to upload a GIF... making it smaller fixed the problem but it never told me that the size was bad. – Catija Jun 13 '18 at 17:06

PNG, JPEG, GIF are all supported formats, your particular images were likely not encoded properly.

I would suggest trying to open them in MS Paint (or any other basic image editing software) and then saving it through there.
