how to work around the "Upload Aborted or Timed Out." errors in iTunes Connect

Lately I've been getting this error when trying to upload screen shots of some apps running on iPad.

It seems to happen for large files, over 1MB. One of my apps does magazine publishing, as such if we take shots of the app showing the cover of the magazine, those usually exceeds that limit and the upload fails.

One way to get around that is to save the large PNG files as smaller JPEG files, of lower quality. You can do that using a tool like Gimp. If you go below 1MB the issue disappears.
