This is fine. We’d recommend upgrading PHP to a supported release, either PHP 7.4 or, ideally, 8.0.

We also recommend enabling EXIF support as this automatically rotates uploaded images plus it’s a nice to have if you intend to use XFMG as we use it to retrieve additional metadata.

Everything else is fine.

I'd probably increase upload_max_filesize and post_max_size if your users are uploading photos from their smartphones as your current values are too small for this usecase.

I calculate for 1 MP round about 2 MB for a not compressed color picture with 16 bit color depth.
Better compression needs less, more colors needs more.

Formula:
number of pixels (eg. 20 MP are 20.000.000 pixels) x Bit Depth (eg. 16 bit) ÷ 8 (1 byte = 8 bit) ÷ 1024 ÷ 1024 = file size in Megabytes (MB)

Example:
20.000.000 x 16 bit ÷ 8 ÷ 1024 ÷ 1024 = 38,147 MB

But many Smartphones comes with more than 20 MP... ;)
