Uploading Images (Security issue?)

  1. Hi I'm new to WordPress and apologize if this is an old question but I didn't see it listed. When I try to upload an image I get this message: File type does not meet security guidelines. Try another.

    It's a JPEG image. I'm on a Mac OS X. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for your help!

  2. The file must end in one of the following extensions (after the .) in order for it to be uploaded to

    jpg, jpeg, png, gif, pdf, doc, ppt


  3. It is a jpeg image.

  4. There are some issues with uploads today. They say to send a feedback from your dashboard with the specifics of the issues. Also, the JPEG has to be on your computer; it won't upload from the web as far as I know.

    Can you please send in feedback on this issue. Thanks.

  6. Thank you, Barry and Raincoaster. I had edited the pic in Photo Studio, the software that came with the Canon camera and saved it as a jpeg image. When I used the original pic and not the one that had been edited through Photo Studio, I was able to upload it.

    Thank you all for your help. And on a Friday night! You guys are great.
