File Usage when Customising Icons?

If I import a custom icon to 1Password, that's a super-high resolution (say, a 2000x2000px 2MB image file), does 1P compress this down to a more manageable resolution and file size, or am I just clogging up my 1P database with hundreds of unnecessarily high-size image files?

    1Password for Windows does not automatically compress your custom icons, @1b_, so larger ones will technically clog your database somewhat. That said, there's some debate to be had about whether or not that's going to have any real impact on your usage/experience as that will likely depend more on your system specs and just how many custom icons you use than anything else. With an exception, of course, for something well and truly massive. That said, the ideal size for these would be 256x256, so if you're looking to stay efficient while still having nice, crisp icons that would be a great target. :+1:
