Is there anyway to tweak the sizing of double pixel images uploaded from Macbook Pro Retina's to avoid them looking huge?

For example, the image from this post is double size

enter image description here

  • Retina is a high resolution device-- normal devices will use the name number of pixels, but it'll take twice the size on the screen because of the reduced pixel density. It would look normal-sized on other retina displays.

I would expect the user to just edit the files before uploading; the user could lower the resolution or shrink the entire image.

    That's partially unfair-- the user might not realize that they're subjecting normal sub-1300$ pc users to large images. I would say that SE should have a feature to normalize images based on the image's DPI (does it have a DPI flag?)
