moderated Please change photo pixel size restriction to photo file size restriction #suggestion


 

Hi,

Would it be possible to do this (change photo pixel size restriction to photo file size restriction)?

It make much more sense to do it this way.  Examples of what users may upload:

iPhone original photo 3264 x 2448 px jpg:  1.5 MB
iPhone original photo with 25% jpg quality setting:  0.25 MB
iPhone photo reduced to 1024 x 768 with high jpg quality setting:  0.78 MB
iPhone photo changed to 1024 x 768 uncompressed TIF:  2.4 MB

Most often, a large pixel size photo will be a lot better for viewing even if the jpg quality is set lower, while other photo formats may be accepted in a smaller format size that give a reduction in viewing quality with taking 3-10x the storage space.  This makes no sense.

Seems like the change may be pretty easy since you already offer that restriction in mail attachments?

Thank you and HNY,
