I just posted Exporting an office document as single, flat, plain-text XML file?, where I show three images, and correspondingly a little less text.
I would have loved to be able to resize/scale the images in the text I’ve written - however, as far as I know, Markdown does not support width/height attributes of images (there may be some dialects that do, but most sites I’ve known that use Markdown don’t support that option).
So, I was wondering - could Ask.LibO consider creating automated thumbnails, similarly to how Imgur (as a behind-the-scenes service for StackExchange) does it? Basically, when you upload an image there, you get the link back for full size image - but when you add
m to the filename, you get “medium size” - and when you add
s, you get a “small size” (or thumbnail) of the same image; then the full-size can be easily linked.
Here is an example image hosted on Imgur (originally in Webcam microphone input in Gnome/pulseaudio - Super User):

Link: http://i.stack.imgur.com/LRn0um.png (medium)
Link: http://i.stack.imgur.com/LRn0u.png (full-size)
Is there such a facility already - and if not, could it be considered for implementation in Ask.LibO? I think it could be a tremendously useful feature…
