Image Size, Format and Quality

Hey guys,

I’m having a problem with Media Library/Upload.

  • I can’t upload images bigger than 1Mb (I want to put 5mb, but if it gets bigger, it’s okay)
  • The quality gets worse when I upload a good image.
  • It’s only accepting JPEG/PNG.

I already look at almost all of Strapi forum posts about media library and still didn’t find a solution for me.

When I am developing on localhost, I can upload an image bigger than 1Mb, but when It’s deployed, the server doesn’t accept anymore.

Maybe it’s something with the deploy? With docker or nginx?

My configs:

  • My config/plugin.js
  upload: {
    provider: "aws-s3",
    providerOptions: {
      accessKeyId: env("AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID"),
      secretAccessKey: env("AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY"),
      region: env("AWS_S3_BUCKET_REGION"),
      params: {
        Bucket: env("AWS_S3_BUCKET_NAME"),
      sizeLimit: 5000000,
    breakpoints: {
      xlarge: 1920,
      large: 1000,
      medium: 750,
      small: 500,
      xsmall: 64,
  • My config/middleware.js
  settings: {
    parser: {
      enabled: true,
      multpart: true,
      formidable: {
        maxFileSize: 5 * 1024 * 1024, // multipart data, modify here limit of uploaded file size
  • My .plataform/nginx/proxy.config:
   client_max_body_size 100M;

** I actually do not understand about nginx or docker, this config was another guy who did it.

  • Strapi is deployed in AWS Elastic Search
  • Images are hosted in AWS S3

Hi @davidsondefaria . Did you find a solution?
