David Anderson's Alamy Image Size Checker - Fail?

Recommended Posts

I've been using David Anderson's Alamy File Size Checker for a long time now.  A very useful final check before uploading 'rogue' files.

 

For the first time I have a 'Fail' report on an image.  The Bold/Underlined figure is in the Comp MB Column.   The previous figure 57.11 is in the Size MB column.

 

Any suggestions as to why this is showing fail?

I think there used to be a limit of 25mb compressed but it doesn't apply any more.  This is from a post by MDM last year....

The Alamy SizeChecker is out of date in that respect. That 25MB compressed size used to be a recommendation several years ago but I'm not sure it was ever applied in the same way as the 200MB uncompressed was - files automatically rejected. Since typical compressed JPEG files from a 36MP D800 series camera will often be greater than 25MB on disk depending on the content of the file, it wouldn't make sense to have a limit like this nowadays.
