    Can I limit Jpg Size on PDF?

    Asked by LoveLeabhar on June 25, 2015 at 10:30 AM

    I have a form created in which publishers fill in information about their books. I would like them to be able to add the books cover too in the form of a jpg. However, I would like to limit the size that appears on the PDF that I get.

    With the file uploader it shows the full size, which looks a bit messy. I do like the link to the image online that it produces though. Ideally I would still keep this, however, I would be quite happy to just be able to get smaller versions of the images that are uploaded appearing on the resulting PDFs so as to look a little neater.

    Is there anyway I can do this?

    Thank you! :)

    You can limit the size of the file uploads themselves but they will be full size once uploaded.  There is not currently any conversions that can be done after the upload to change the file size.  The limit for file uploads can be changed in within the file upload fields settings:


    The is the only limit you can set for file upload size.  This would depend on your users having files smaller than your limit.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
