Why the 20 megapixel upload limit?
May 18, 2014

Many cameras, like the popular new Sony A6000 have 24 megapixels.

The file size is not the problem, as DPR allows uploading much larger files than the jpeg files normally are.

But DPR has this ancient 20 megapixel upload limit. Why? It wouldn't tax the DPR servers any more to allow for 20 megapixel uploads, other than people using it more often...

Could DPR please consider upping this highly outdated 20 limit to at least 24, so that 6000x4000 images can be uploaded? File sizes are generally under 8MB give or take, so file size limit would not have to change I think. But image dimensions, it'd be like 2 little numbers in the code without affecting anything else...? !
