9. Image & Video Size Limit

There’s a 5MB limit on the image size and for video. There’s currently no limit on how many images you can upload. However, uploading too many images might cause issues such as slow loading speed of the page, or making the page harder to scroll through/read. Please be mindful of viewer accessibility!
