When i upload pictures on this forum, the size is limited to 500kb as you know.

In my opinion, it is too small, so people might feel inconvenience when uploading pictures.

If possible, I hope the limit goes away.

Thanks for the feedback.  I assume you would want to directly upload a large picture from your phone or camera without resizing it? Nowadays the cameras have tons of megapixels and for many purposes, they are just way too big. To display on a web site, photos that are 3000 pixels wide (~6 megapixels) does not make much sense.

With a JPG of 500kb, you can get a pretty decent photo size for web viewing, but I understand the concern.  How big are your photos anyways? (in terms of X and Y and also in terms of bytes).

The size restrictions won't go away for sure. It might be adjusted to a higher number.  I'll forward your suggestion to the site owner (Drew).
