    Honestly, simply upping the limit to 8.5MB would probably be sufficient to alleviate the problem for most users.  With an iPhone, you only need to crop a few pixels off of any dimension to get under the 8MB limit, so it is already very close.  But given that this is such an extremely common use case, "buy a premium account in order to upload anything from your phone" is not that compelling of an answer.

     

    Alternatively, you could have the server down-res the image slightly to get it under the limit.

    Should be 20MB imo, enough for a couple seconds of good quality video.

    I think it’s absolutely unacceptable to ask users to pay for the ability to seamlessly upload screenshots taken on the same device that the discord app runs on.

    If you don’t want to increase bandwidth costs, fine, have the client compress the images before uploading them. iPhones have very fast SoCs these days, put them to use.

    Instead of asking discord to increase the upload limit, discord could try to implement compression for the image if the image is larger than the intended file size. Or provide user difference setting between low, medium and high preset of the compression

    this is very problematic for sharing screenshot from iPad Pro 10.5 or larger, they exceed 8mb so i usually have to compress it sending the same screenshot to myself in Telegram, saving it again and sharing.

     

    Another solution could be automatic screenshot compression when > limit (8mb for free, 50mb for nitro users)

    When I take screenshots with my iPhone XS Max the file size is over 8mb....can't even send screenshots in discord.  I am so close to getting my buddies group chat to discord, raise it to like 15!! :) thanks, love the program.

    Considering the world of HQ Screenshots, videos and file formats, 8MB has very little hold for most small captures on PC. This also carries over to audio remixes that you have made yourself. I myself have made my own boosted versions of songs and have been unable to send them afterwards due to the file limit. While Discord was meant for GIFs and other image formats, new downloadable formats of images and videos make this limit have no fit. This also includes older formats too with how updates change the functionality of these file types and size requirements. Telling someone to pay for something that is a standard of most other messaging apps is like trying to sell the IPhone 8 for the price of the IPhone X.

    Yes please! Its very annoying where I cant even send a screenshot from my phone unless I crop it just a little bit. It just barely exceeds 8 MB! and i really don't need to spend money just for a 50 Mb upgrade I don't need all of it. I don't even care if they only increase it to 9 MB! I just want to send screenshots easier.

    @meme that caching is for a limited time and will not being saved permanently on the servers of Discord.

    I have trouble promoting discord to friends, because of this. When they see that they can't even share a picture or a video, they are directly turned off and go back to Skype, Viber, Whatsapp, etc. Today's phones generate pretty big files and these limitations will prevent Discord from winning some new clients.

    I see a lot of discord apologists here saying “just get nitro” or “cloud storage isn’t free.”

    However this issue can be very easily solved simply by having the client compress the image before uploading it. This solution would not burden Discord’s servers with any additional compute, bandwidth, or storage demands whatsoever. There is absolutely no excuse for why this problem exists.

    I agree. I have a 4k laptop and I can't send screenshots at all since they exceed 8MB. It's really annoying having to constantly go on image sharing sites, and shady resizing websites every time I want to share any sort of screenshot to my friends. Sometimes even pictures I take from my phone is too big to be sent on discord, and it can be very irritating.

    I am a full time student, and can't afford nitro all year (which is nearly $70 per year for me, even without the gaming version of it) so even discord compressing images to 8MB for free users would be fine, as long as my friends can see my screenshot without going out of my way to make it smaller.

    I do understand this may cause issues with storage and bandwidth, but it is something that I feel like the team should at least keep in the back of their mind.

    +1 I can't even share a 11 seconds 720p video! 
    I could use H265 but Discord doesn't support it yet, so... convert down to 360p? lol

    Must be idiots with Nitro Negating my comment..... so here again.... NOT EVERYONE CAN AFFORD NITRO....those of you with NITRO that are DOWNVOTING what I say are SNOBS. Snobs don't belong here. Upvote because What I say is right.... Nitro is discriminatory.... They got the increase and they promised an overall increase in file size and didn't do it..... GET RID OF THE NITRO PERK OR CHANGE IT WITH AN INCREASE IN FILE SIZE FOR THEM AND INCREASE THE AMOUNT THEY HAVE TO PAY PER MONTH!

    Reminder that this issue could be trivially solved with absolutely no additional burdens on Discord servers by having the discord app compress the image on-device, before uploading it.

    Rather than drastically improve their app’s usability for a large category of users at no significant cost, Discord opts to inconvenience them in the hopes of up-selling them on Nitro.

    Slack has 1gb file size while Discord is being kinda lame not increasing file size.  Here is another idea Discord should partner up with a file like Letsupload and files would show correctly on Discord kinda like Twitter has 2 image host and when you post images they show correctly in tweets.

    I think i'll post my Problem here aswell...

    With my Phone Huawei Mate P20 Pro and P30 Pro, im not able to Share Pictures over Discord, because in any angle i take a picture it is "too powerful" and i wanted to ask about automatic compression which would let me share my pictures directly over discord...
    if you want uncompressed uploads you could either use a upload provider or upload directly a file over discord, they should stay same quality as they cannot further compress... lets say a .zip file

    What are your Experiences on this, have you met this Upload Limit with normal Pictures too yet?

    Pretty annoying you can take a Picture without any Option to lower Resolution, and then it tells you it won't upload it since they are too powerful. I can't really share a Picture without tremendous Efford - so a build in Compressor would be a cool thing.

    Agreed, this is ridiculous that nearly any photo I take on my s10+ won't upload to share on discord, very frustrating!

    The 8MB limit is normally OK for most screenshots while keeping things balanced in terms of resource usage. Discord Nitro does let you have uploads of up to 50MB per file but I'm not sure that the current limits will be raised

    In the meantime, Nitro or Nitro Classic would allow you to upload files up to 50 mb. Alternatively, you could upload to an external site and link it

    The 8mb upload limit is set for non Nitro users, however there is a 50mb upload limit for Nitro users. I believe the limits are set up this way to help manage server load and resource usage. Discord isn't really meant to be a file or video hosting service, but there are ways to share videos into Discord without running into limits

    Not to mention discord supports playing youtube videos in the client itself (on desktop), and youtube allows almost any size or length of video.

    You can always upload it to giphy or imgur or whatever u want. They do this because people can very easily fill up discord’s storage and probably also other people’s.
