I noticed that there was an informational message in the past few days about imgur having issues. Now I see that that message is no longer appearing, but when I try to upload an image I get:

Failed to upload image; the image format is not supported

Here is a link to the error message: https://i.stack.imgur.com/JaTXa.png

I am trying upload PNG files from a Mac, generated exactly as I have in the past. I checked the imgur web site and they still list PNG as supported format.

So, is this an issue with imgur still experiencing problems, or is TeX.SE no longer allowing PNG files to be uploaded using the official method? If PNG is not longer supported i think a lot of Mac users are not going to be happy.

  • I uploaded a .png yesterday with no issues - not sure what you are seeing

  • @JosephWright: Yes I did yesterday as well. Just not today. I'd do am image capture to show the exact error message, and post it but can't :-) Oct 20, 2011 at 19:02
  • See chat, please!

  • Was this resolved? Or, if not, is it still happening?

This is now fixed and seems to be working well for several days.
