Image is scaled down

Hi There,

I noticed when I upload a large image size WordPress is scaling it down automatically.
This is happening only on large scale photos when I am uploading a photo 2880x1920 px. After upload, the new size is 2560x1707 px and this “-scaled” automatically added to the file name.

I tried this in one of my current projects and a newly setup WordPress and I got the same result.

I appreciate it if you can help me to solve this problem.

Thank you,

Hello @sasanmoradian and welcome to trac!

This is a new feature in WordPress 5.3. You can find out more about it in the Make.Core blog post summarizing the feature.

If you'd like, you can turn off this feature by adding the following code to your child theme's functions.php.

add_filter( 'big_image_size_threshold', '__return_false' );

In the future its best to create a thread in the WordPres.org Support Forums instead of Trac for issues like this.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that there is also a plugin you can use if that'd be more convenient for you. https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-big-image-threshold/
