There are a lot of images in the database, any idea how can I find the mentioned image?
However, the iOS build works great.

The problem is solved

Fortunately, most of the uploaded images were jpg, only 20 was png.
I converted and optimized all the png and replaced them on Adalo.

Glad it’s solved and thanks for reporting it. I have created a ticket about this for the team to look into so we can determine the cause better.
