"Your upload was not a usable image"

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:

When attempting to update the icon for a developer app, I only get an error message:

“Your upload was not a usable image. Choose a PNG, JPEG, or GIF that’s under 5MB and try again.”

I’ve tried this with a variety of images, including some I have used in the past and none have been accepted.

Steps to reproduce:

Browser version:
Chrome Version 74.0.3729.169 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Hey @Kothar, sorry to hear you’re having this issue. We will look into it and get back to you. Could you attach the exact file you’re having issues with? That will help us repo it.

Yep, I’ve just checked and this png fails:


It’s only 70x70 pixels, but I’ve also tried other images and larger versions of this image with no success.

For example, the same image resampled to 120x120 pixels gives the same error:

As does this logo which I have used in the past and is already assigned to an existing developer app:

Same for me with this image. PNG, 8Ko, 128x128px
