Trying to upload my first images and I'm getting this error.  They are admittedly large image files.  Does Coppermine have a size limit?

Coppermine itself doesn't have specific size limit... But there is a practical limit where your server will exhaust resources (memory,CPU, time out).

Unless you have a need to store/download large versions... It is typically best to resize to a reasonable setting before uploading.
Remember to create thumbnails, GD or Imagemagik needs to load and manipulate the picture...

How large is large?
