Two things to beware with large files:
- timing out: set max_input_time to large number or -1 (no limit) 
- memory running out: to make a thumbnail, PHP needs to create a full 
color image, which may be a lot larger than the uploaded file, if it was 
jpg. <http://es2.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.memory-limit>

If you don't have access to php.ini, you can set these in your .htaccess 
file, for example:
php_value max_input_time 1800
php_value memory_limit  96M

> and if PHP has an
