You are correct, you cannot dynamically resize. :-(
Please feel free to file a Feature Request. I would love to see that option there.
If you hover over the image, do you get the icons for styling? See attached.
Yes! I did find the icons… eventually (after intense scrolling in several directions)
I sort of fixed the problem myself adding a rule to the themes/cp_themes/default/css/global.css limiting images to either a percentage or a number of pixels I yet have to figure out.
I wouldnt be surpriced if this is method is considered backwards or something but its the best I can come up with right now. The trick will be to remember adjusting this stylesheet as soon as there is an update.
I am very keen on input on how to accomplish this in a smarter way.
Clicking the icons seems to add inline styling to the figure- and img-tags. Is there a way to have those icon apply a class of some sort instead?
Is there any way to use addons like CE_image and Imageresizer on images published via the RTE?
Ah! while working on the language in this post, some cabbage pie (yummie!) and a few diaper changes I see some interestin contributions to this thread. I’ll definitely try Boyinks take on this.
