    Edit by Cola_Colin:
    @wondible mentioned issues with attaching files and this discussion resulted.
    I've put it here because it was extremely off topic

    orginal posts follow:
    for screenshots don't use PNG, png is lossless and makes the file size too big. You're safe saving to JPG with a 7 to 8 quality on the slider (in Photoshop).

    It's 287kb. I've uploaded at least one over 500 before. I was also having issues putting a file on S3 the other day.

    You may want to check out tools like Hyperdesktop that allow to make a partial screenshot and instant upload it to imgur, placing the link in your clipboard.

    I have the same experience, the fact of the matter is it won't accept that size anymore. Mayhaps Uber are running short on HDD space?

    After restarting my computer, router, and modem, I was able to get it to upload.
