Adding an effect bumps up the image size past the allowed size

jamesg Member Posts: 5

I have an image that is 7.66 MB. If I go in to quick edit and attempt the following transformation:


I get an error 'Maximum image size is 25 Megapixels. Requested 53.7 Megapixels'.

I would not have expected a show effect to bump up the image size.

Are there any workarounds, bearing in mind I need to keep the original image size? Thanks.
