Attachment size in our Airtable base

Hello everyone,

More than 3 years ago, we started using airtable to keep track of supplier invoices. We basically enter some invoice-related information and at the end we attach a photo of the invoice. Previously, this was a great solution, but phones are getting better, so our invoice uploads (photos) are getting bigger and bigger. I have spoken with Airtable support and this was their response:

Thanks for writing in! Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to optimize the image size; however, I would recommend using an external source like dropbox and upload the link there to upload it in Airtable for storage space!”

We primarily use iPhones and our database now contains more than 1500 records. We use an iPhone app and enter the invoices manually. Opening attachments is slow, so we are trying to find a solution. It would be great if Airtable could have an option to optimize photo attachments, but that isn’t the case at the moment. Could you please share any ideas on how to resolve this issue without interfering with our existing workflow? Thanks for your help.
