Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Programmatically resize photo quality for device-captured attachments

We need to add photos captured from the iPad camera to documents in a Domino app. But there will be hundreds of thousands of photos over the course of a year.  The native iPad camera will generate a 3MB file for each photo.  The database will be huge, which is a problem for replication, compact, and save & restore.  We don't need that much resolution.  Would like to be able to specify the photo quality to be captured, or else call a function to resize an already-attached photo.  You could say we want to store a large thumbnail of the captured image.

    I don't think that the size is really a problem, but yes it increases with any new device as the resolution goes up.

    My ideas how to handle this:

    1. The default can be the full size image

    2. IBM may offer an end-user selectable option to resize, like its offered today in apple mail.

    3. A Notes Policy could define a maximum resolution so that apps don't need to be smart

    4. An option for the app developer to resize before storing
