 either force transcode of attachments of photo/video to a toggle of options for quality 50-100% for photos, and a resize to max edge, or "constrain ratio" and for video: 16:9/4:3 and then common sizes, or define your resize option and ratio would be FANTASTIC as an addition to the messenger module settings...   as well as an ON/OFF toggle to enable / disable these transcoding options...
i noticed that many android phone users (especially those with the samsung galaxy s series.. have a very hard time with the jot conversation once i've sent them one or two screenshots from my iPad...(only 11mb) should be fine, but it's not.. it drags their device to the dirt. so i would like to send optimization, since a screenshot of ipad only really needs to be 200-300kb, to be readable, but to have options to scale to 1:1 100% quality.
i am certain others wish for something similar too.
if its too much work to make the pref pane, then ah.. i guess one could just adjust the code, but this is a for the overall vision of the module...
it would benefit a great many especially on mobile/handi/poor connection to have this built in.

    • Hello,

      As far as I understand you mean something like pre-size of the image before to send them to the Talk. 

      By default, after uploading there are two photos are created one original and this photo you can download and second one for preview to show in chat history. So, if we resize photo's size before upload, then the users will not be able to download the original file from the talk. 

      • oh okay.  after process mapping all the use scenarios and options, that method actually is the most efficient.   i just notice that sometimes when i take a screenshot i send to my friend its 11 megabytes, and she is on slow connection in bavaria, the rest of her chat messages are slowed because she hasnt downloaded the file yet.  then this makes node have to catch up.   (are they already running multiple threads spawned on demand) for messages coming in asyc to being sent, if this situation with waiting on attachment occurs?
