My understanding of those settings is that:

"upload_max_filesize" determines the maximum size of a file and 
"post_max_size" determines the maximum size of the post which is all the bits 
of a form -- all the inputs, the textareas, the files etc.

Thus the settings you have above would limit your max file size to 2MB.

Try increasing the "upload_max_filesize" and see what happens
