I'm using cloudinary's transform url https://api.cloudinary.com/v1_1/demo/image/upload to optimize my images. It works fine for images smaller than 20MB but when I try to upload an image >20MB it fails.

After researching I found out that that's the maximum image size which is allowed for paid plans. But the sdk's provide some methods to upload large images using upload_large methods and so.
So is there any alternative like this in transform url as well?

    Hi @DevNaya ,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Yes, so the Plus plan has max image file size of 20MB ( https://cloudinary.com/pricing/compare-plans ).

    The SDKs do provide upload_large method and this is relevant for assets greater than 100MB so in your case this is not required for images as it's capped at 20MB but you can use it when uploading videos greater than 100MB as Plus plan comes with a max video file size of 2GB.

    Can you please clarify what you mean is there any alternative like this in transform url as well?

    Please look at https://cloudinary.com/documentation/image_transformations regarding various ways you can transform.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Kind Regards,

    Thomas
