View Full Version : File size upload limits

I tried to upload a GIF, but the limit is 19.5 kb. Can we increase this to 150 kb for all image types, and make it 500+ kb for PDFs?

Raised to 153600 for images and removed w&h.. pdf's to 512000. I removed the H&W limits but mabe we should have something like 1600x1200 max??

That's probably a good idea -- I hate it when the browser gets super wide because of giant images. My 5 megapixel camera shoots at 2592 x 1944 -- I would never upload a file that big to a forum. I think 1600 x 1200 is very generous. (How does it handle it when the picture has been rotated? Maybe it should simply be 1600 x 1600, to allow for portrait pictures as well as landscape).

Please increase the allowable size for ZIP files to 512,000 bytes as well.

I think it's amazing that PSD files are allowable. Next thing you know, we'll be having our own Photoshop contests. Pretty cool. :D

Also, is there a per member file attachment limit? I've uploaded 3 or 4 pictures so far, and I now see a little status bar that shows about 1/3 red, 2/3 green. This might be a feature that we disable for RS members -- i.e., members can upload unlimited images.

I set the zip the same as pdf's and set pics to 1600x 1600... we can see how that works out...

Rising Sun Members and Cruiser Moab Committee Members don't have a limit on uploads now, for the General registered user like 100kb
