Maximum file (photo) size uploading

When trying to upload a photo (1 MB or above) as my profile image, I get the error message

Sorry, that file is too big (maximum size is 4096kb). Why not upload your large file to a cloud sharing service, then paste the link?

as shown here:

However, there is nowhere to paste the link and the file size is only 3.18 MB anyway:


It does upload when I compress my image down to 1008.9 KB, but anything 1 MB and above gives me the above error.

Is the issue that the file limit should be 1MB and there’s just a typo, or is the error message right and there’s a problem with uploading the image?


I noticed this too. It must be a generic file size limit on the server or something. Either way, both the message (which suggests linking and isn’t possible) and the max size need to be adjusted.
