Does form Attachment control compress the file prior to upload?

I am wondering if during the attachment upload process from a mobile powerapps form app, does the size of the file change or is it compressed? For example, if I took a photo on my iPhone that was 1.2 mb, and upload it through the form as an attachment in a sharepoint list, is it still 1.2 mb in the sharepoint list? Or has it been compressed prior to uploading? It is hard to tell since from what I can see, you can't view any metadata about your attachment in the sharepoint list? 

 

I have downloaded the attachment after submission and it reduces down to about 311kb. But I can't tell if it is being stored in sharepoint as that size or if my computer is reducing the size upon downloading?

Hi @asAdmin,

 

I cannot reproduce your issue. I just tested and the size of the file does not change after attaching and downloading. Would you please test with multiple files to check?
