We really need a way to force a maximum image size for surveys. We need a way to resize the images either on the device or after the photos are submitted so they are placed into the database at a workable size. That, or disallow these images to be uploaded and provide the user with an error of some sort.
Reason for the request: A bunch of our in-house web applications were timing out when retrieving photos from the database. After some investigation, we found out that one of our users was taking a ton of photos with a Samsung Galaxy S22 phone at 108 megapixels per photo and submitting them to survey123 through the camera roll. This caused many issues with out-of-memory problems on the server as well as web interfaces lagging or crashing completely when multiple photos were included with a survey. With recent news that the next generation phones may go up to 200 megapixel, I can see this being a major problem in the future.
