Have you tried looking for a plugin that sets a maximum upload size? I know
that PHP can set limits on the biggest file you can upload, so you could
use that as a way of stopping users from uploading enormous photos, though
you'd also be blocking uploads of other filetypes that actually need large
file sizes. If you can control the server configuration then you can
definitely set maximum upload size directly in the PHP ini files.
