I am trying to upload a jpg image, crop it, and then add it as a featured image on a blog post. I am using the 2011 theme, which, if the image is the correct size, will put it as the banner image on the page.
My problem is that I cannot edit the image. I can upload it, but all attempts to edit it are met with an error message: "Unable to save the image". I have tried editing immediately after uploading, waiting to edit until after I have uploaded the image and gone separately to the gallery, scaling, cropping, renaming the file to something short and eliminating the caption, but nothing seems to work. The image is 1300 x 969, but I've worked with images in my home computer's native resolution, which is 1920 x 1080. It is frustrating because the error message doesn't tell me -why- the image can't be saved, only that it cannot.
I will say that while fiddling around, I did manage to get the image to save once--but whenever I tried to pull it up again, it was blank, so something still went wrong.
Any help would be appreciated.
The blog I need help with is ecumenicallife.wordpress.com.
