Is the maximum size of an image still to be used as rejection criteria when GeekModding?

I saw this asked a year ago or something and the answer was "yes" ...
but I've rejected nearly every image I saw the other day and it was almost all due to the image being too large.

There isn't even a good comment to select for this, only can select Too Small...

As far as I know, it's still valid, but only for images which can function as 'scans' of materials (and thus allow high quality reproduction of them), not for general overview photos.

And yes, the lack of a checkbox for declining such images is one of many flaws caused by the 2015 geekmod redesign which were never addressed, so "Too Small" is your best bet.

Is there a document that really is up-to-date then?
I've read through all the image guidelines that were officially linked and nothing says that sizes only apply to certain types of images ?
