Another fix we've been meaning to implement forever is, I believe, taken care of. The maximum file size for uploaded photos (and other files) has been greatly increased. Previously it was 2Mb, so attempting to upload any photos larger than 2Mb would return an error. I'm not certain where the cap is now, but I believe it's much, much bigger.

As before, photos will be automatically downsized and compressed to keep our storage sizes manageable.

Does this also apply to avatars? I've never been able to find a picture with the postage stamp dimensions required.

It doesn't, but I might have a bead on an auto-resize mod for avatars... let me see if I can get that installed.
