I am trying to upload an image into Free Study. I am sure it is correctly sized. I have tried uploading it from Workshop and from my files but it is rejected with this:
File exceeds the 700 kB limit.
Does anyone know if there is a glitch or I am doing something wrong?

Try changing the date of the photo when you upload it.

I have often found that if I resize my image to just under 700kb it becomes a little over 700 on uploading. I have to go back to the save for web stage and reduce the quality. Maybe that is the problem?

check again your sizing if necessary resize to slightly smaller than 1200....

I have tried resizing it but nothing seems to work. Thanks for your suggestions. I thought maybe there might be a glitch and
others were having trouble. This image is so tightly cropped, I cannot imagine the size is an issue.

Also try re-saving with a different file name; perhaps go a step back to your full-size image and re-sample/resharpen again. Sometimes there's just a glitch in the file.

Also, even kb is a rough measurement. Get the Info//Properties for the file and see exactly how big it is in actual bytes -- the limit is:

716,800 bytes

Thanks..Adobe Customer phone support is 24/7! The problem was I was editing Raw in "Photo" not LR.
It's fixed and the image is in.
Thanks everyone for your help!

This is how I do it in Photoshop when editing a Raw image:

Create a Duplicate (Image -> Duplicate) and flatten the layers
Resize the image so that it's 1200px on the long end
Export using File -> Export -> Save to Web (Legacy)

In the upper right corner of the export dialogue there is a drop-down menu that has an option in it for Optimize to File Size. I use 693KB as putting 700KB tends to create files that are slightly larger. Note: you can also do your resizing as a part of this dialogue by putting in 1200 for the long end of the image, but I like to actually see the results of the resize in Photoshop first before exporting.
