I will be teaching a photography course. What is the best way for the students to submit images with a high resolution? Is there a possibility that they will run out of space?
Stephanie, you are correct in wondering about whether students will run out of space or not. The following Canvas guide - How do I view my user files as a student? - shows that the default for each student is 50MB of space for files, which isn't going to be enough for a lot of high resolution pictures.
Your best bet (and what I recommended to our online photography instructor) is to have your students use a program that allows them to upload large files and get a URL link to that file that they can then submit to the Assignment. You can then click on the link to view and download the assignment. Here is the Canvas student guide on how to submit a URL - How do I submit an online assignment? - and you would want to make sure you set-up your Assignment to allow Students to submit "Website URL" - How do I add or edit details in an assignment? (this is under "Select Submission Type").
Below are a few of the most common options for uploading large files that I've used in the past, but there are others out there that do the same thing.
Something else to consider is that the default file storage limits for Canvas courses is 500MB. When the online photography instructor at my Institution was building his course he ran out of space and I had to increase this limit. You may want to contact your Institution's Canvas Help Desk/Instructor Support to check on this in case you need extra space. [Side note, last time this happened the instructor didn't get a notice that they were over their course limit, they just couldn't upload any more files/pictures to their course. You can check and see how much you've used in your course by going to the Files (navigational link on left) in your course and looking at the bottom left under your list of files. It will say something like "Storage Used: X Bytes out of 500 MB."]
Hope this helps!
hosting on a 3rd party site is the best solution. Dropbox even has an LTI that you can use within canvas!

Another great photosharing site is Flickr. You get 1TB of space with the free account on Flickr.com. Students would need a Yahoo account for this one.
