Recently, after updating to WordPress 5.3, many of us have been facing an unusual problem. The problem is that we are unable to upload images using media menu or directly via post into WordPress. Although in this update WordPress has fixed many bugs, it enhanced many features.
When you are trying to upload an image, it gives an error showing that image upload is failed. The error somewhat looks like this –
WordPress 5.3 Image Upload Error
Post-processing of the image failed. If this is a photo or a large image, please scale it down to 2500 pixels and upload it again.”
Solution: WordPress 5.3 Image Upload Error
The solution to WordPress 5.3 Image Upload Error problem is very simple. It is a conflict between your server or browser and the new updated WordPress.
- If you are using some cache plugin like W3 total cache, wp-rocket or fast velocity minify, then flush or delete the old caches.
- Clear your browser cache.
- If you are using VPS then restart your server.
I hope, after doing this you will be able to upload images using the Media section menu or via post into your WordPress website. If not then leave a comment below.
