File is not an image when using wp_get_image_editor

  1. Hello,

    I'm saving an image via File Upload field and it's path is stored in user metadata. So far so good.
    I now need to grab that image and resize it. I'm trying to do it with wp_get_image_editor() as following: $image = wp_get_image_editor( $file ); where $file is the correct path to the image.

    However, this returns the following error:

    [0] => WP_Error Object
                                [errors] => Array
                                        [invalid_image] => Array
                                                [0] => File is not an image.
                                [error_data] => Array
                                        [invalid_image] =>

    Any idea what might be wrong? Maybe I need to pass mime type to wp_get_image_editor()? I don't know how to do it.

    I would hugely appreciate any help.

    Many thanks,
