Hi,

Photoshop imagwas to Wordpress error message "Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons".

I came across a mysterious problem today when the Wordpress media upload system decided that it would not load anything saved with my Photoshop version 19. Yesterday I updgraded my Imac to Catalina. I could still upload old JPGs created in Photoshop and other JPGs but nothing saved today. Images saved as export "save for web" worked.

I have now upgraded Photoshop to 20.0.7 and now images saved as JPGs upload once again to Wordpress media. I am running Wordpress 5.2.4.

Hopefully this is useful to others and my problem has indeed gone, but how exasperating and time consuming to struggle towards a resolution.

Good luck.

Hi

Catalina introduced a number of bugs, and the one that you saw was fixed in 20.0.7. See these pages for more info:

Excellent, thank you for this information, I wish I had checked this before I upgraded to Catalina! Patrick

I have a related problem - files saved as jpeg in Photoshop "save for web" on Catalina 10.15.7 and PS 21.2.3 now don't upload to Wordpress (hosted by Wordpress, latest version), same error as OP. If I change/add an extension ".jpg" to the file they work fine. This is annoying as it adds an extra step to the workflow. On older Mac (Mojave & PS 21.2.2) I don't have this issue. Any workaround or preference setting to force PS to save as "jpg" not "jpeg", or other workaround? Thx!
