I tried to upload a mineral ID request to Earth Science. It's probably an 8 megapixal image. Stack reloads the image upload progress button to zero again and again. It can't upload and there is no error/status message after 5 minutes of the upload button not doing anything.

  • What browser and OS are you using, including versions? What's the image file format and size? – doppelgreener Oct 5 '18 at 15:52
  • How big is the file? Imgur only accepts files that are 2MB or smaller. – ale Oct 5 '18 at 18:34
  • it's chrome on android 6.01 it's a raw image file, i thought that imgur could compress big pics. that's probably the issue, although there should be a size error message. thanks – com.prehensible Oct 5 '18 at 22:22
  • imgur itself can, not their API. – Shadow9 Oct 5 '18 at 22:34
  • RAW files can't be displayed in web browsers. Convert it to JPEG, PNG, or GIF as appropriate. Then upload. – ale Oct 12 '18 at 12:04
