MSCRM 2013 Image Data type Storage

  • On upload via the web application or SDK, images are validated, resized, and stored as a common binary data format in the CRM database.
  • Regardless of upload format, all images are all formatted to JPG on create or update. On average, this puts most images at about 5k at max.
  •  The uploaded image is always resized to the minimum size necessary to support CRM 2013 and a smaller sized copy with the same aspect ratio as the original gets stored to the database.
  • The bounding box in CRM 2013 is hardcoded for all image fields: 144pixels x 144pixels. This value will be stored in attribute metadata as Height and Width
