Need to reduce file size. Not sure about iphone but do you have an image editing app on it ?

Make a copy of your photo (keep the origonal) edit the copy and reduce the photo dimensions (width) to about 1000 pixels and the height auto if it has the option (maintains the dimensions proporsionaly with height auto)

that should make the file small enough to be uploaded if not look for an option to reduce the jpeg quality try -10% or reduce dimensions to 800pixels
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

Btw check the sticky on the photography forum about removing gps data if yours is on.
