I tested this with a sample image. It worked without any trouble. Could you kindly send the file you are trying to upload to email@example.com ? May be some file format issue. We will look into it.
Thanks--I reloaded one image in higher resolution, after I had uploaded some others. Now I cannot figure out how to delete the first two low res images(?) On a second note, the copyright info appears in a bad spot on a couple of my images. I'm sure this is a boilerplate thing, but I recommend lowering this mark as it would be common to have important content in this particular spot. Thanks!
Thank you too! Smallest side of image should be > 400 px. In terms of file size in bytes, an image file size should not be more than 50MB. However since higher resolution digital files allow larger print sizes, artists and photographers are advised to upload the highest resolution images they have. For good digital prints, smallest side of image should be > 1500 px.
[Source - Wikipedia] Sir David Wilkie (18 November 1785 – 1 June 1841) was a Scottish painter. Wilkie was the son of the parish minister of Cults in Fife. He developed a love for art at an early age. In 1799, after he had attended school at Pitlessie, KingsKettle and Cupar, his father reluctantly agreed to his becoming a painter. Through the influence of the Earl of Leven Wilkie was admitted to the Trustees' Academy in Edinburgh, and began the study of art under John Graham. From William Allan (afterwards Sir William Allan and president of the Royal Scottish Academy) and John Burnet, the engraver of Wilkie's works, we have an interesting account of his early studies, of his indomitable perseverance and power of close application, of his habit of haunting fairs and marketplaces, and transferring to his sketchbook all that struck him as characteristic and telling in figure or incident, and of his admiration for the works of Alexander Carse and David Allan, two Scottish painters of scenes from humble life.
