I was attempting to upload a picture to add to my question here but I kept getting this message box (which I've never seen before across StackExchange):

enter image description here

Which, after clicking OK, lead to this page, which I've also never seen on StackExchange.

enter image description here

Now clearly, I'd like to add pictures to my question. And I can tell that the error message says its not my fault, but...

What is "framing"? I've never heard that and had no idea my pictures had this. Is there an easy way I can remove the framing from my pictures before attempting to upload them so that StackExchange doesn't crash when attempting to do it?

For what it's worth, the picture is one of two images created when I did a Cmd+Shift+3 screenshot on a dual-monitor setup.

  • I've just tried, it did work for me. Can you try again? If it fails again, please try with a different browser, disabled extensions etc.

The maximum image size you can upload is 2 MB. If you try to upload an image greater than this size, you receive this error.

Framing is regarding the error message that Imgur provides, not the image itself. Stack Exchange does not allow framing in general and Imgur trying to do this will cause this error.

  • If this error scenario comes when the image is too big, then it is very cryptic for the user. Jan 31 '15 at 10:56
