Error Handling for Image Fields

I would like to see some type of error handling on the Image field.

Currently, this field will accept any type of file with no error being returned to the user. The result being that no one can see or access the attached file when it is not an image.

The Image field should only accept images and nothing else.

        This happens to us all the time. Emails or PDFs are mistakenly saved in an image field and are unable to be opened. No error message is given.

        Hi John,

        The system should actually be recognizing the file type and rejecting it from even being uploaded. I have logged a ticket with our engineers to identify and implement a fix for this issue.

        You will be notified by email when this issue is fixed.

        Thanks,

        Justin
