How to set upload size limit in pixels

  • You know the situation: you have set everything up for the client who wants to manage himself the content of his website. You teached him not to copy-paste directly from MS Word, and you told him to upload images at a reasonable size.

    Of course, WP has been configured to resize all images appropriately, so there is nothing to worry …

    except that the customer will upload 10 MB images from his camera, at sizes of 5000 x 3000 px … and WP won’t produce any thumbnails for those, as the resizing exceeds the memory limit.

    Question: can we define a maximum pixel width (of, say 2000px in any direction) beyond which the user will simply get a warning message?

    Setting an upload limit in MB for any uploads would be no good though, since we should allow the upload of a 15 MB pdf, for instance.

  • Have you found a solution to limiting the pixel dimensions of an image upload? I could be satisfied with a message to the user to resize the image and try again. And also delete the attempted upload.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    No, unfortunately I didn’t.

    I guess we should either post the question on the [wp-hackers] mailing-list, or open a feature request in trac.

    Got some feedback from the list!

    For the time being, there is an advanced upload plugin that can help – it has client-side resizing capacity:

    According to @ottodestruct, Plupload will be integrated into WordPress 3.3. How cool is that? 🙂
