Excuse my ignorance, but every once in a while I get the error message: Flickr API returned an error message (function upload, message Filesize was too large)

What export preset can I use that will avoid this message, but still give me the largest size possible. I assume it's something about "Image Sizing" but last time I did that, I put 5MP and it ended up exporting as 3MP. What am I not understanding?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Okay I uploaded Jeffrey's plugin and I like it, it even let me skip over the oversized pictures, but it didn't say how to make those oversized right sized, so if anyone knows let me know.

If you have the free Flickr I believe you are limited as to you file size and dimensions...?

Yeah when I uploaded, even if I did the resize to 20mb, which is what the limit is (pro, not free) it was still saying it was too big. It finally worked with 14mb

I uploaded images that were 1024x pixels and average 250k in file size which did not degrade the image when posting the link here on this forum . To me that's fine but if you need larger files for other reasons then you may want to go Pro on Flickr and pay for an account .

I have pro, there's still a limit on pic per size. I don't think I phrased the question right since people are misunderstanding. Anyways, it's fixed, thanks guys.

If you are uploading to Flickr to just to post here etc.. try uploading lower resolution. I usually finish all my PP, and open the folder in PICASA and export the whole folder with 1024 as the largest dinesion and Automatic compression. I end up with 150-250 KB files that display nicely & load fast... and no one can steal your hi-res images..

Seems to be a technical limitation with the back end processing of the images:

From the sound of it, Flickr is not the only site that has this issue.

Is there a reason that you need to upload giant photos? Are you using it to share the original full-size files for others to download?

If you're just using it as a way to share images on the web (posting them to this forum and others), then have Lightroom resize them during the publish process. Since the limit for POTN display is 1024px on the long edge, have Lightroom resize to that size upon upload. You won't lose any image quality when you do this... in fact, it's likely going to look better than if you uploaded the full-size file, then let Flickr resize it to web display size.

If you're using Flickr as a storage device for others to download your full-size photos, there are other resources (Yousendit, Dropbox) that are better suited to that type of task.

Yes to share, yes it's the best option for me and for the people who are getting it.

Thanks all, it's figured out.
