Drone Image Fails to Upload Due to Large File Size
When trying to upload an aerial image taken with a drone, you may encounter the error shown in the following screenshot:
Reduce Image Resolution
Normally, this error message is shown if the size of the file you're trying to upload is too large for our system to use. Many drones take photographs in 4K or even 8K resolution, but if you are able to change this setting, saving the image at 1080p resolution will often reduce the file size enough to allow you to upload the photo, while still retaining more than enough image quality to sketch the roof accurately.
Crop Image to Reduce File Size
Another possible solution to this problem is to open the image file in an image editing software that allows you to crop photos, and crop out any unnecessary areas of the image, such as neighbors' houses or land that doesn't include outbuildings. By cropping the photo, you'll also be reducing the file size.
