Images size reduced even when picked from camera roll

Hi community,

I am aware that when adding picture to forms, taking them within the app reduce the quality size but picking them from the camera roll should not.
However, whether I use an R script to download media or download a single image from the website, the size is reduced to a maximum resolution of 768 × 1024pixels. So the images size are about 200-300kb each while the original file is 3-6MB.
Am I doing anything wrong here?


Hi there,

From the User Guide at Platforms and media - Epicollect5 Data Collection User Guide

Photos taken/imported to Epicollect5 will be resized to a resolution of 1024 x 768 px (landscape or portrait, aspect ratio 4:3).

This applies to any photo added to the Epicollect5 platform. You could export the original photos you have on your device and link your entries to them in the post-processing of data.
