No error message in UploadWizard for files exceeding MP limit
Open, NormalPublic


Author: mcdevitd

For UploadWizard, files exceeding the megapixel limit only display the broken thumbnail icon in the preview, but there is no error message telling the user that the thumbnail failed to generate due to megapixel limit. This might cause someone to think that the upload failed and try to go back.

Even if you know that the upload did not fail because you are used to the shortcomings of UploadWizard, if it's a batch upload where you need to name and describe each file this may still become a critical failure: you don't know which image is which, so you have no usable way to correctly name and describe the files.
