thanks. it’s also interesting to check whether if you download it from the Sanity, can you able to reproduce the said issue?

, Hm... actually not only for .png it doesn't work.Try download this .png image from sanity using this link
And upload to some your sanity dataset, I do it using node.js like below

const uploadedAsset = await client.assets.upload(
fs.createReadStream(path.join(__dirname, originalFilename)),
{ filename: originalFilename }

I have a feeling somehow in the backend side of things, the binaries got messed up. I’ll try this in a local setup I have but it’ll be for a while.

Are you using Vercel or Netlify or something similar? I would check whether
is available.

One way your file is intact is if you try different size of images . The image sizes should also be different per upload.
