If I want to be able to upload images in Payload CMS, will a DO Droplet suffice, or do I also need Spaces (Object storage)?

    Droplets come with a set amount of storage already, the lowest being 10GB I think, but you can add Volume (block storage) that will automatically mount to your droplet. If you're going to use a droplet anyway, that is likely gonna be the easiest solution for more storage. With Spaces, you would have to write the functionality for uploading files yourself, since they don't attach directly to your droplet.
