File size upload recommendations
There is no limit to the file sizes that can be uploaded, however we do recommend keeping uploads to under 20GB.
Personal collection storage is limited to 1 GB per user and 100 GB per institution. If you previously met the limit and your storage limit was increased, we will respect the increased limit. If you are continually exceeding the limit, you may want to consider using JSTOR Forum at your institution.
Upload messaging for Personal Collections
When adding content to your personal collection, their appearance in your collection may be delayed due to local network speed and system-traffic. A lag between publication and display is common with larger uploads and slow networks; expect a shorter lag between small files and faster connections.
You may see the following message when selecting files to upload:
There may be a delay of up to 30 minutes before recently uploaded images will be ready to view and share.
The appearance of uploaded files depend on file size, network speed, and system traffic.
You may see the following message immediately following an upload:
Processing Delay We're sorry, there was a processing error. 1 image was re-added to the publishing queue.
The files have been placed in the publishing queue and will appear in your collection when processing is complete.

Personal Collections uses JSTOR Forum to manage your content. You can catalog and share larger collections, plus publish to additional locations when licensing the full program. Learn more on the JSTOR Forum about page.
I'm having a problem with uploading images to the personal collection where I upload the image, add the metadata, press "save" and then check the collection and it says that the images are processing--but when I check back hours later it's still processing and then eventually disappears without depositing any images into my collection. I tried again on different days and with different WiFi connections but the images still never show up. Not sure if others are having this issue but I would really like to know if there's a way around this because I would still really like to use Artstor for my project. Thanks!
Hi Lily! I'm happy to help with this. I'll email you so that we can get this sorted out--it definitely sounds like something our developers will need to take a look at.
Hello! I am trying to upload images to my personal collection and it is saying it's uploading but even if I leave it overnight, it doesn't import the images. I am having the same problem as the user Lily Windsor, above.
