i couldn`t upload small images (under 150*150px) as well with the new version until a few days ago. then i re-downloaded the latest version from my account, and it seems that it is fixed – now i can upload any image without any problems.
try to do the same. Maybe Elliot fixed the bug but forgot to update the version number of the plugin.
