What do you set your Maximum Attachment File Size to?

    I noticed the default is 1024KB but that seems kind of small. A lot of cell phone pics are bigger than that. What's a good practical limit? The upload_max_filesize is set to 2MB in php.ini by default. I'm thinking that seems more reasonable but I may go even higher than that. Disk space is pretty cheap. What do you find is a good limit that will allow most images and only block the very large ones?

    Mine is set at 10mb, but as I have all images resized on upload they tend to be around 500k most of the time.

    As you say disk space is cheap!

    300MB, but that's because i needed for things other than images.

    I also have $config['maxImageResizePixelCount'] = 70000000;

    I run radio shows and there are times where people make remixes and uploads wav files for me to do audio mastering. Disk space isn't an issue at all.

    My settings are:

    Maximum Attachment File Size (KB) = 3000

    Maximum Attachment Image Dimensions = 1600 x 1600

    How do you get the images resized? Is that an add-on?

    No, it's default XenForo functionality. Set the maximum image dimensions to do this.
