Strange uploading problem
« on: November 10, 2008, 02:48:36 pm »

Hallo, I have already posted this in the main board for uploading, but I think the issue is related to watermarking so I post it again here (I apologize if I am doing wrong)

I have a gallery with many inmages, i'm using 14.19 with stramm modepack watermarking pictures.

Today I found a problem uploading pictures:
The uploading process works fine, untill I add the picture to the album.
When I try uploading a big picture (2000 x 3000 pix) Then I get:

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 41156608) (tried to allocate 2008 bytes) in /home/tinorebe/public_html/website/gal/include/ on line 442

If I upload a smaler picture (untill 2500 pixels longest side) everythings works fine.

Could this problem be related by the maximum memory my account is allowed to use on the server?.... I have been using the same configuration and did not find problems since now... possibly the watermarking process takes a lot of memory....

The fact is that since last week I never faced this error and I have uploaded many pictures in the same big resolution (2000x3000 pix and bigger)

The memory  limit I have on my server for PHP is 64 MB, wich should be fine for a picture of 2000x3000 pix -
(2000x3000x3)/1048576 = 17,16 MB - Ther memory needed to handle the picture. + a simple watermark (i dont know how much memory is needed to handle but i supppose not more than the picture itself)

Suddently I am facing this problem and I wondered if it could be caused by some bad config or else....

Anyway I'll continue investigating and I will post the solution when (and if) I find it .... just to help if someone hase same problem.

Live long and prosper!

2000x3000 pic needs ~30mb mem. Then in addition to that the watermark image. Maybe a resized copy etc.
