resize image upload
Fist important use of mattermost is sharing picture.
We need to upload a smarphone picture with a good resize for not explode server hard drive. (picture management is not easy with history)
For example when we upload a picture, a menu ask:
Choose size upload:
- original size (~4mB)
- full hd (800 kB)
- 1024px (200 kB)
(we can use mozjpeg lib)
Resize coulb be on the sever or on the app, but it's necessary.
This feature is not on slack and i don't understand WHY.

my users are sending a lot of pictures with whatsapp and to with mattermost it takes very long to upload the pictures (IOS / ANDROID)
It would be great if the picture would be resized BEFORE upload.
I have upvoted this issue too. One of the strongest complaints I get from users is that "<insert any other messaging app> uploads photos that I take on my phone basically instantly, but this app takes ages".
I should note that the general consensus from my users is that they love the mobile apps and the whole Mattermost experience - but the image uploading speed is such a bad UX for them that it warps their perception enough that they don't want to use the product.
Users are complaining that Image Upload takes much longer than in Whatsapp. This feature ist sorely needed.

I vote for this. Our users start to asking about this.
