    We are using the built in library to manage images and was wondering if there is there a way to disallow the user from uploading images that exceed a specific max height and max width that we can set somewhere (preferably in the web.config file)?

    I was looking at the built in user control located at : /Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Library/ControlPanelEdit_Image.ascx and was thinking one way to achieve this is by adding range validators on the page that provide the restrictions. However this would be modifying the built in controls. Is there a better way to achieve this?

    Hello Damon,

    Thank you for using our services.

    You can set Max library size and through Sitefinity interface for a given library. Restricting the size could be done a handler:

    object obj = temp.GetMetaData("Width"); 
    if(obj !=null
    width = Convert.ToInt64(obj); 
    obj = temp.GetMetaData("Height"); 
    if(obj !=null
    height = Convert.ToInt64(obj); 
    if (width > 100 || height > 100) 
    // add your logic here 
    temp.SetMetaData("Width", img.Width); 
    temp.SetMetaData("Height", img.Height); 
    libraryManager.SaveContent(temp, ContentStatus.Published); 

    You can find the following link useful
