Have tried to load a jpg but seems to have failed

Nick, this is weird, I'd like to understand how it happened and potentially how we can replicate it. Are you able to click the EDIT button and try to re-upload your images? Cheers Aaron.

Hi Aaron
We've been having a few of these errors. Eg see one from Ryu on CNM, which I fixed:
https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sightings/Details/3395460
This was a reasonably large file, 1.8MB if I remember correctly.
Another one I fixed was:
https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sightings/Details/3394756
These were small jpg files, less than 200KB.

Thanks Michael B. I want to get to the bottom of this and get it resolved. They all seem to be web uploads as opposed to via the app.. cheers Aaron

All good now, thanks Aaron

Great to see a new group up and running!
Another thing that may be consistent with the errors is that none of the images seem direct from a camera - mine had been edited (with a watermark) and that program unfortunately doesn't retain the file info, the button quail was I believe a web upload of images taken on a phone, and this one doesn't appear to be from a camera?

Yep that was exactly it Ryu. The affected files contained no EXIF meta data information. I had a very small part of our code that got caught up on this but is now resolved. Cheers Aaron.
