Optimize Image for Upload Setting - Android



We are finding the optimize image for upload is not working for Android devices.  For iOS, pictures attached to a SharePoint list item are consistently under 1MB when uploaded through PowerApps.  For Android devices, the images are in the 7 - 12 MB range.  Is this a known issue?

Hi @JonathanM ,


Are you talking about the Picture column or the Attachments column? Currently there is a limitation of uploading a file attachment size to max of 10 MB in PowerApps. 


There is one idea submitted where you can vote on:

Hi Mona,


Thanks for replying.  No, I'm talking about this option in the mobile app:



On iOS this seems to be working, as images uploaded are under 1MB.  On Android, this does not seem to be working as similar images (photos) are uploaded at 7-12 MB.  Due to these large sizes and cell phone connections, we've found sometimes the attachments do not make it to SharePoint.
