How can we improve the Windows Azure Service Bus?

Increase the 256K Maximum Message size limit of brokered messages

256K Maximum message size limit of Brokered Messages on the Service Bus Queue is really nothing, this means when I want to send a picture over a Queue (to do decoupling between a mobile App and the backoffice), I have to split the message everytime. This is awful..

    Thanks for the valuable suggestion. We do have an on-premise offering with the message limit of 50Mb but for the cloud service the current limit remains 256K as that meets most scenario needs. However we do continue to work on features to eventually increase this limit but that will likely be in a dedicated/reserved resource model.

        I believe the recommended approach for this exact scenario is to upload the photo to Blob Storage and put the ID of the Blob into the Queue instead.
