If the image uploads (both the single image and the multi-image uploads) start giving http errors when you try to upload images to the media library, please follow the steps below in order to troubleshoot the issue:
Step 1: Try to activate the default theme. If this resolves the issue, reach out to your hosting company and follow step 2. If you still experience the same issue, please go to step 3.
Step 2: Please ask your hosting provider to increase the max execution time for this site to minimum 60 - 100 sec. Ordinary the uploads fail because the request times out while the thumbnails are being created. WordPress generates all registered thumbnails when you upload the image, and since this theme uses a number of different sizes it takes more time to generate the thumbnails than it takes when you use the default theme. This would explain why the issue disappears when you switch the theme.
