well, if its more than one pic then it gets to the page where you can set title and description of the image (Add Photos - Select Photos / Configure Properties ) but then gives this error:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 25165824 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8000 bytes) in /home/defence/public_html/pictures/image-inc.php on line 115
I have been experiencing the same problem and it started when my hosting company recently installed bug fixes to PHP 5.2.1. The first obvious problem was that most pages of all sites using PHP would not load. then later I discovered nobody could upload pictures of more than a few KB in ppClassifieds or Photopost. I have copied part of the hosting company's last reply below:
This is nowhere near a good enough solution as people have got used to uploading up to six images as big as 2mb each. I will need to make some drastic changes to what users are allowed to upload.
If anyone has a better solution I would love to know about it.
I was able to upload some decent sized images after setting the server limits to 32Mb. I had some trouble with the 650Kb image but then I cleared out their 'uploads' folder of the unprocessed stuff (as suggested by the photopost developers) and then it went through just fine. I think that this software isn't making smart use of the conversion and that's why it's wanting to allocate 90Mb just for some larger images. I'm sorry but we just aren't willing to increase the memory limits any higher than 32Mb as this is a shared hosting environment.
The reason that this would have started happening after February 21st is because of the bug fixes to PHP 5.2.1 where it actually *started* enforcing the memory limits that were in the server config. What may seem like a bug at the server level now is actually a bug fix, and is in fact the software beginning to work properly.
Your recourse would be to have your company tell you or install Imagemagick for you. We have no control over GD2 which is part of PHP or how much memory it requires to process images. Thats a server issue with GD2 and PHP so all we can suggest for those using GD2 is to increase PHP memory or switch to Imagemagick(mogrify)
Yeah it is GD2 using up the PHP memory since it is part of PHP so not much you can do other than restrict filesizes if they wont change anything or get them to install Imagemagick or move to a host that has imagemagick
