using Image_Gallery on clean install of SS 2.4.2 with Uploadify.

all working fine, until i tried an image over 500KB.
it either gets stuck half way (around the 500KB mark), or it reaches 100% then just vanishes.
occasionally it says "IO Error" and the box turns red.

the thing is, when it does make it to 100% it actually uploads into the assets folder fine, and i can access it via web and FTP, but it wont show up in the CMS.

my PHP.ini is set as follows:

max_execution_time = 60 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_input_time = 60 ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
memory_limit = 64M

; File Uploads ;

; Whether to allow HTTP file uploads.
file_uploads = On

; Temporary directory for HTTP uploaded files (will use system default if not
; specified).
;upload_tmp_dir =

; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 20M

so that shouldnt be the problem (plus as its actually making it into the assets folder i dont think its a server issue)

can anybody suggest anything?

thanks in advance

has NOBODY else come across this problem?? :(

does anybody even know what i can do to troubleshoot?
there's no error messages as far as i can tell (although i dont know where to look really)

is there something else i can upload via to test if its a server issue or image_gallery issue?
