Course card images over 10MB and up throw a 400 error in the console. This happens with all accept file types (jpg, jpeg, gif, png). The images load within the course settings page.

Manually setting the geometry parameters to a larger size(eg geometry=2620x1460) on the inst-fs/cdn call allows the file to download without the error.

Expected Behavior

The files should load on the course card.


Make the file size smaller or use another image.

Steps to Reproduce


Prerequisite: Have a course.

  1. Add an image (jpg, jpeg, gif, png) as the course image that is over 10MB. Notice that it does not load and instead returns a 400 error in the console.
