All too often when trying to paste in a screenshot from a game (print screen key, followed by Ctrl+V shortcut) the "Your files are too powerful" message appears. In other clients, for example Telegram (which is a great example for this), you are offered the option to send images and videos as-is, or you can choose to have the client resize/compress to send faster. The mobile client takes it a step further for videos, where there is a slider that goes up and down for the desired quality and output size.
If you are trying to send an image over the file size limit, it would be great if the client notified you and at least made an attempt to fit the file to the size limit. In this scenario, sending something is better than sending nothing, and would save users the hassle of opening another program just to resize and save the media for sending.
As a side note, given today's content 8 MB is absurdly small when compared to other free cloud-based chat platforms where hundreds of MB per file are permitted to be stored and forwarded.
