Error adding image to card cover

I'm getting an error trying to upload an image to a trello card cover.  It doesn't matter which Image I'm using. When I try to add the card cover image trello responds with

Unable to use imagename as a card cover..  


See this screenshot for ref -


Also, all the images I attach to the card look like this - and don't offer a preview at that level.

It was a bug in Trello and it should now be resolved.

I'm having the exact same problem right now.  Maybe it's not our fault...

All of my attempted attachments are on my local machine.


I'm having the same issue. Making an image into "Cover" is not an available option.

I've restarted, used different browsers, and different file types, all without success.
