Resize images in drag and drop builder

Hi I've been spending a bit of time using the drag and drop builder lately to build anything from opt-in pages to sales pages and more. And I love it.

I do think there are a lot of features - more widget ideas that could be added which I'm sure are in development already.

One thing that I do get a little frustrating with is control of image sizes in the drag and drop builder. And the ability to control size of those images whether the page is viewed on desktop/ tablet or mobile.

I am very comfortable manipulating the physical size of images in photoshop but I'm sure many others wouldn't be.

what I find I have to do at the moment is create an image the size i think i want it. upload it and add it via a relevant widget. Check it on all devices. 

If I'm not happy resize it again in photoshop and upload it again. 

But this is still always a compromise I always seem to end up with an image that works great for desktop but isnt exactly what i want for mobile.  

Before you say..."you can create a mobile only section" great i get that but that's very time consuming as is constantly having to resize images.

You also can't always maniplulate the size of the image by adjusting padding, which is a poor way to control the image in any case. 

Better control or editing of images in the drag and drop builder would mean not having to constantly flick between photoshop and leadpages and re upload new images.

    It would be great to be able to drag on the corner of an image to resize it AND MOVE it anywhere on the page without having add "padding" with other widget blocks

    Most important hing is to control the size of images on mobile. They get supersized on mobile, even if they are small on desktop view! This is really not great design!
