Images getting compressed

Hi guys,

On our application, we ask users to upload a high-quality image of themselves. However, upon saving to Bubble we realized that the quality of the image had dropped significantly.

Quite recently a user uploaded an image the original size was ~10MB, however, this image was compressed to ~10KB.

We would like to know if there is a way through which we can avoid this?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @ancil5199,

That’s actually a feature. Bubble “automagically” optimizes images for display on the web using a service called Imgix, and that’s the desired behavior in most cases.

If you wish to bypass that feature, you can append a simple query string parameter to the image URL as explained in this note in the documentation.

Thank you, Sudsy. I tried this out and it worked.
