Hi we've bought another license of Frontplage slideshow and I've installed on Joomla 2.5.1
Everything looks OK but when I try to upload or select a new image (4. Upload or edit the slide image(s)), it gives me an error "This is not an image file"

I'm using:
Frontpage Slideshow v3.2.0
Joomla! 2.5.1

I've given 777 permitions to "media/com_fpss"
I've tried with several JPG and PNG, same results.

I need to have the site ready for tomorrow, can you help me?

Thanks
Joao Magalhaes

I had the same issue and the problem was a missing php library.
After installing imageGD on the server, this worked fine.
Maybe it could help you too.

I am getting This is not an image file - ERROR!.
Ubuntu Server 12.04
nginex
Joomla! 2.5.6
Frontpage Slideshow v3.2.0

I followed the previous threads and installed the php5-gd as well as chmod 777 on /com_fpss. I still get the same error.

Does anyone have any more ideas on this?

Very Respectfully

Did you check your permissions?


Please install Admin Tools from www.akeebabackup.com/ in order to fix your permissions as they should be and then reinstall the extension.

Right permissions on all joomla sites:
755 for folders
644 for files

Web server nginx/1.1.19
PHP version 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.4
MySQL version 5.5.24-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
GD Image library FPSS_DISABLED

do you know how I can enable the GD Image library ?

Thanks Again.
