Is there a limit on the size of an image that we can post in a thread?

I've been trying to upload a gif but this error appears:

bitcointalk.org image proxy
Invalid image

here's the image btw:

I have tried many times to post an image on the forum but I did not find any issues so far on forum. I believe this issue may happening because of the gif image with high pixels.

Other than that there will not be any issues on this image as I checked. Once again check the forum code on imgur and then post to try whether it is working perfectly or not.

Your image:


I don't think it's a file size and more than it won't fit in a post. I imagine it might show up normal in your post history and that'll be about it.

EDIT, I was wrong about the post history thing, but resize your image to be the size of a post.

Use :
Code:
[img width=300][/img]


Oh sorry, I thought you are talking about size of the image but not the file size.

Imgur converts large gif to MP4 files if I'm not mistaken, so actually you are posting not gif but mp4 format. That's why it is blocked.

Test, it's a temporary link of the converted file, it will expire in a few hours:


Code:
[img]https://im5.ezgif.com/tmp/ezgif-5-66cf920a0c.gif[/img]

Imgur link :

It's a gif. It ends in dot gif.

If it were an mp4 it ends with something different and also has a scale at the bottom to tell you how long across the gif/mp4 you are.

According to this thread max image size is 2.5mb. Guess you have to resize it.

Yeah, it seems that it ends in .gif but if you download it it's actually a mp4. You can try it yourself. Now I have fixed it see the post above. Now it is completely converted to gif.
Just for reference :
Imgur begins converting GIF uploads to MP4 videos with new GIFV format

ezgif link was only temporary and expired in a few hours, so I have uploaded converted to gif to imgur too so it's permanent. See my post above.

Awesome! Thank you! I also tried changing the image width but it doesn't work. And I even tried uploading on a different hosting site, no preview appears.
