    I want the image upload quota max file size to be set lower than 1MB, to save disk space, isn't this possible?

    No, 1MB is the minimum.

    Bear in mind that if you set a maximum image width and height then the image will be resized automatically. This is a much more user friendly way of controlling the disk space used.

    As a very general example (e.g. with one image I have on my machine right now), let's say you accepted file sizes of around 2.1MB this would be approximately 4064px x 2704px resolution. If you set your max width/height to 1280 x 1280 then this image would be resized to approx 1280 × 851 automatically.

    The resulting file size is 350KB and your end user hasn't even had to worry about having to resize images beforehand.

    I didn't know it works that way, that makes perfect sense actually, thanks.
