Image upload size limit


#1

3072k, or something?

I’m just trying to upload photos from my phone, which I’ve done loads of times without any size limit warning, and suddenly I can’t? what’s going on? has @system gone rogue?


#2

3 megabytes seems more than enough for a photograph tbf


#3

seems like mine tend to be around 4mb at least.

never had any issues uploading before though, cows. has someone leaned on a button?


#4

edit your photos and save as smaller jpegs, maaaaan. nobody needs to be uploading 4mb phone photos


#5

He’s right, something has changed as I’m in the same boat. It’s not that 3MB is too small just that it’s definitely smaller than the average phone camera size. Possible @sean has put a limit in to save on server costs or maybe the package has changed.


#6

What app are you using for this? Standard Google editing app doesn’t seem to do it in Android


#7

i’m on a galaxy and you can do it within your phone’s camera app.


#8

Ah right, Samsung apps are probably a bit better. They take up. More space :wink:


#9

3072 is the limit on the forum. It doesn’t have any obvious signs of having a different value previously. Odd.


#10

i’m sure you can set your phone to take lower quality photos anyway if you cba


#11

Oddly not really that I can see.


#12

Only way you seem to be able to on a Samsung is via email- gives you an option to reduce file size when you send.


#13

I could do it on my old galaxy alpha. On my S7 you can turn HDR off and crpp in a bit and hope for the best.


#14

Actually, HDRa has got turned on on my camera. I thought that just took a longer shot to get more light? It’s off again now so maybe that was what changed?


#15

Found the picture sizes on the S7 but the smallest is 3.7mb and theyve totally removed the resize feature which seems bonkers. Hohum.


#16

I haven’t had time to touch anything.

If it’s bigger than 3MB just upload it elsewhere and link to it.
