Re: Hey, Upload size limit issues please help!

TBH you should be addressing the file itself if it is 5MB as 5MB for a web graphic is not simply ‘pretty big’ it’s far too big! I would be editing the file and compressing before attempting to upload. An avatar for web display is generally around 80px x 80px even if you double that size and whether you are talking gifs or jpgs a file of those dimensions at a web resolution of 72dpi should come out at around ~10k even a large jpg image at say 600px shouldn’t really exceed the ~50k mark and you would have 100 of those for your 5MB.

Uploading large files unnecessarily just drains data transfer, soaks up bandwidth and asks the server to have do do more work in compressing and resizing the image than it need do.
