Are images compressed before they are stored in blobs or they are compressed only when we display them?

If I uploaded a 2M image file, will it be stored in the blobs or drive with the same 2M or say, 525 kb?

Yes, images are compressed. Firstly they are resized to 600px wide if too large, and are saved as JEPGs with 90% quality.
Hello Scott, all the images are now getting uploaded to disk, but images in answers still remain in the database, I think . Why does this happen  ?
