    Is there a way to reduce the size of images or compress all images to a zip file?

    Asked by Timvanaerschot on September 06, 2016 at 04:26 AM

    For a merchandising report I'd like to ask my employees to add 36 pictures in 1 form.

    As the amount of MB's will go through the roof it won't be very practical. 
    Also the form I will receive will be at least 70MB per time. 

    Is there a practical solution to either downsize the image size of photo's or to zip / file the pictures in a form?

    Regards, Tim

    You can allow your file upload field to accept multiple uploads in that certain field

    Note: you can also increase the max file size upload per file set on your field.

    Also, in concerning a way to downsize the image upon upload, there is no available tool for that, likewise there is no option to compress the files uploaded to a zip file. So if you wish for your file attachment to be zipped, I recommend that you ask your form users to zip the file first before making an upload.

    If you have further questions, please let us know.
