Thumbnails for >20MB photos

Thumbnails for >20MB photos

Hi Dropbox,

The V2 docs clearly state that "Photos that are larger than 20MB in size won't be converted to a thumbnail". However in practice we seem to be getting valid thumbnails for files that are larger than 20MB. In addition, this seems like somewhat of an unusual size limit since frequently DSLRs will produce >20MB files for every photo.

 

Can you possibly clarify:

1. Are there plans to increase this 20MB thumbnail limit in the future?

2. Is the thumbnail endpoint working for >20MB files currently only as a side effect of v1 support still being available?

 

Thank you!

1. I can't make any promises, but I'm sending this along as a feature for official/documented support for thumbnails for images larger than 20 MB like this.

2. This isn't related to API v1 exactly. (API v1 also only officially supports thumbnails for images less than 20 MB.) We have been working on improving our thumbnailing infrastructure itself though.
