Image picker how to limit image size on upload?

what should be done ? so that I could set the maximum upload parameter for 1 photo to 10 mb?

@Flawless hello, I consider you a great connoisseur, do you know how to do this?

Hey Tony, it’s possible to compress images when users upload them, but you’ll need to use an API for this, something like TinyPNG. Then, you’ll need to use a “Text” parameter to store the image in the database, not an image parameter, as you’ll need to store a new URL for the uploaded image.

Here’s the TinyPNG dev docs: TinyPNG – Developer API

On your button, add a new custom action with a POST request that contains the image and the return value will give you a URL of the compressed image.

You can’t do this on the device before upload, the full image size is uploaded, then any compression is done server side.

The image picker needs a complete overhaul IMO, see this thread where Victor and I hash out some inner workings
