Some phones are now starting to take photos above 20mb by default in their camera settings.
We currently do not compress images before upload like other services and we have a file size upload limit of 20mb.
However it’s inconvenient for a user to not be able to upload a photo they just took of their car, or a document to the platform without them compressing it themselves beforehand.
We must investigate a soluton to enable users to select larger photos for upload and not just block them if they are above 20mb.
In the meantime we encourage users to compress their images before uploading them if they are above 20mb.
It’s worth noting that for viewing purposes this is an unnecessarily large file size and doesn’t serve to offer any beneficial quality improvements when saving images for historical reasons.
