The plugin allows you to set the maximum size of the Upload File, make it a requirement to attach files, include attachments, specify the size of the attachment image, and more.
You can also allow users to attach different file types, such as document, PDF, PowerPoint presentation, Excel spreadsheets and more by selecting the file type option.
There is also an option to select all users or allow only registered users to upload attachments in WordPress comments.
therefore all images uploaded by users are stored in your WordPress media library. If you want to delete a photo uploaded by a user, you need to go to the Media /Library, locate the photo, and then delete it.
