Support larger file sizes by compressing them before transfer to the server
Many images and screenshots captured today, are larger than 2 MB, the max allowed size on Codidact. This means users will regularly run into a barrier when attempting to upload images to their posts (or profile). Just now, I wanted to create a new post, which would benefit from some screenshots, however, that process was more complicated than it should have to be, because I was denied uploading the screenshots, as they were too large. I can still upload them, but I'll have to go compress them first. This can be automated. Codidact should accept larger image file sizes client-side (10 MB?), compress them, and then upload them to the server.
