Lannis, Honestly it will be a problem to say yes to it all.
right now its possible for me and no one else to upload 8MB photos. I'm not all happy as there are two ways to do it. its the way the files are being compressed. the best way is not best typically. The best way I can do it compress a 8MB file down to 1,5MB in size but the worst is that it don't resize the pixels down.
So this option has to go I cannot allow ea image to be 1,5MB.
second option resizes the pixels to what I prefer and it compresses the image much more. So this is the way I have chosen for now. If you recall large images has screwed up the layout if to big. Therefor I have had the setting for a long time to maximize the shown image to 800px width. Therefore all uploaded images will be no bigger then 800px and between 100-200kb as end product.
The other thing to consider is which amount of file size in KB/MB should be allowed and how many in one post.
Some members are annoyed that one cannot upload large images so if I allow 8MBthan I would not probably allow more than 4-5 images in ea post.
Right now the Gallery is set to 6 photos for upgraded members per post and for forum posts its 10. There is no limit for linked photos from other sites as before.
