If a media file is too large to add to a shared document in Pages, Numbers, or Keynote

Learn what to do if you want to add an image, video, or audio file that's larger than 50 MB to a shared document .

If you're collaborating with others and the image, video, or audio file you want to add is larger than 50 MB, here's what to do:

  • Stop sharing the document, spreadsheet, or presentation, add the file, then start sharing again. 
  • If the document is in a shared folder, the owner of the shared folder can drag the document out of the shared folder, replace the large media file, and then drag the document back into the shared folder. 
  • Reduce the size of the media file so that it's smaller than 50 MB.

If your shared document has a damaged media file that's larger than 50 MB, you should stop sharing the document, replace the file, then start sharing again.
