Uploads Tab

Overview

The Uploads tab allows you to control options related to user uploads.

Profile photo thumbnail sizes

By default the plugin creates three thumbnails when a user uploads a profile photo (40px, 80px, 190px). These are used to improve the performance of the plugin by serving the thumbnails instead of the original image. This option allows you to change the size of the thumbnails or remove a thumbnail from being created. However, if you have not changed the default image size of the profile photo you should not need to change the settings here.

Cover photo thumbnail sizes

By default the plugin creates two thumbnails when a user uploads a cover photo (300px and 600px). These are used to improve the performance of the plugin by serving the thumbnails instead of the original image. This option allows you to change the size of the thumbnails or remove a thumbnail from being created.

Limits

Limit file size:

  • The setting "Profile Photo Maximum File Size" limits the maximum file size* of the profile photo. The default value is 999999999.
  • The setting "Cover Photo Maximum File Size" limits the maximum file size* of the cover photo. The default value is 999999999.

Note: You have to set the maximum file size in bytes.
Examples: 100kB = 102400, 1MB = 1048576, 10MB = 10485760

Limit image width:

  • The setting "Image Upload Maximum Width" limits the maximum width of all uploaded images. Bigger images will be re-saved with a smaller width.
  • The setting "Cover Photo Minimum Width" limits the minimum width of the cover photo. Smaller images won't be uploaded.

JPEG features

The image uploader can automatically rotate images to use orientation by the camera EXIF data. Turn on the setting "Change image orientation" to enable this feature.

The image uploader automatically compresses JPEG images. Use the setting "Image Quality" to set the quality of the compressed file. It ranges from 0 (worst quality, smaller file) to 100 (best quality, biggest file). The default value is 60. The recommended value is 90.
