Adding Images to Items

I'm trying to add a jpeg file to an item, and am getting an error message:

The file 'file.jpg' could not be ingested because its media (MIME) type could not be detected.

I tried a pdf to see if a different file would work, but no luck. After browsing in the forums I thought adding wiseconvert to the toolbar might help ( but no luck. Perhaps I installed it wrong?

with thanks,

A quick workaround is to disable file type validation in Omeka's Settings -> Security Settings panel.

Otherwise, this is generally a server setup problem, or potentially a corrupt or malformed file.

Thank you so much for the speedy response. The quick fix worked like a charm!
