In-editor image downsizing uses HTML resizing instead of actual resize

This comes as a suggestion from Google, who wants to help publishing platforms deliver content faster.
When you use the in-editor image downsizing functionality (the percentage slider), it does an HTML downsize. This can lead to bigger image requests than are necessary. An actual resize for local images would result in a more efficient load.
