Lately I've been seeing more and more e_grayscale transformations throwing a 400 error, has anyone come across this issue? For example here's a headshot image of me that cannot be transformed:


And here's the transformation:


Anyone knows a way around this?

    Oh my gosh. Thanks Loic. I knew it was something I was doing wrong, because Cloudinary has always delivered top notch product, but just in case there was a bug I figured I'd ask here. I was doing resizing, but it seems I was doing it out of order... first grayscale, then resize, so it appears the order does matter. Wow. Thanks so much. As always, best software and best support community.

    You are welcome @tomasz :)

    Effectively sometimes the order matters especially with large originals.

    All the best,
