So WordPress 4.7.3 can’t upload JPG format for me. I tried a lot but nothing happen so I decided to change the format of the image. When I uploaded it in PNG format it’s uploaded just a few second. I don’t know why it’s not working. If you are facing the same problem like me you can try to upload an image in PNG format. If you don’t know how to convert an image to PNG format then you can use snipping tool which are available in all the windows machine.

If error not fix following previous steps then, i recommend you Increase your Max upload File size through your server.
