This is a bug report to determine whether we can raise the megapixel limit for
images higher than the current 50 MP limit. This would better support
high-quality archival scans and other complex media.

According to data from Tim Landscheidt
(, there are currently over 20,000
files that break the megapixel limit in Wikimedia projects, which results in a
thumbnail error that makes them unusable except for downloading. Roughly,
raising the limit to 200 MP would fix all but the top-1000 highest-resolution
images. Raising it to 100 MP would fix all but the top 5000.

I have no idea how these changes might affect site performance, though.
