    Size of different attachments:

    this is so not good :-(

    .pfd needs a lot more memory than .jpg

    Better if you could set different
    for .jpg 2MB
    for .pdf 20MB

    or there is an addon?

    Typically it's .jpg files that are larger, especially when taken by 20+ megapixel cameras.

    Why does there need to be a different size setting for different attachment types? The main reason for having a size limit is to help manage server space so that it's not filled up quickly with lots of huge files. To that end, it's irrelevant what file type it is, a 20Mb file is a 20Mb file. :)

    a .pdf for resources are not usually smaler than 15 MB

    a .jpg picture is the size wtih 100.000kb good.

    I think you may be confusing measurements for file size.

    I've never had .pdf files as big as 15Mb, most are just a few hundred Kb in size. As for .jpg files, you generally can't get a decent picture size at less than 100Kb, sizes smaller than this are generally suitable for avatars.

    Anyway, there isn't an add-on currently available for this as far as I'm aware. I don't think this would be a popular add-on for the reasons I've stated before so you'll likely need to pay for custom development. Good luck with that. :)
