Starting with WPResidence v.13 we introduced a image size check for images. We did that since many times users upload small images that gets stretched or simply don’t look good. The scripts check if the image is at least 500px x 500px.

If you want to change the size we check (or simple disable it) you need to go into ajax_upload.php at line 47 and there you have

if( intval ( $file['base']) ==0){
if( intval($file['height']) false,'image'=>true);
echo json_encode($response);
exit;
}
}

Change the 500 value with the size you you want. If you want to disable the check just delete that code.
