Why would imgur reject an image upload request? Temporary problem, or a problem with the particular image? I've tried several images, all small (<100KB). The error message is not very informative...

  • $\begingroup$ Yesterday I had the same error message containing 'imgur', while working on a very long answer; I don't know what the reason is, bt eventually I attributed it simply to having gone over the character limit, i.e., my interpretation was that it had nothing to do with the properties of the image proper. Looking at the post you cite, of couse, it seems that for your problem this is not the reason. So my interpretation of the error message might be fallacious. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 10, 2017 at 13:40
  • $\begingroup$ And I did a similar thing like you describe: compressing an image more and more (I think I tried four times) to smaller and smaller file sizes, yet this did not help with the imgur error message. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 10, 2017 at 13:42

    $\begingroup$ @PeterHeinig: It had nothing to do with the size of a post or of an image. See Emil J's link for resolution (but no real explanation). $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 10, 2017 at 22:37
