Another way to look at this is that the authors should simply provide suitable images. 8MB for a few pieces and move diagrams is pretty ridiculous. We did not put an upload limit for no reason; space and bandwidth are not entirely free, and unlimited wasting of those resources will hurt.

The images I see now in no way qualify as 'high quality'. They are in fact awful. They contain lots of totally unnecessary detail (like an irregular texture for the background of a board) which enormously bloats them, and is detrimental to the purpose they are for (namely to convey how the pieces move). Less detail = better, and the image size is a good indication of the lack of suitability.
