Images in quoted posts

I had a thought the other day when messing around with images in posts.

There is nothing more annoying than seeing a huge image quoted by someone, but it is also very unclear sometimes what image they are referring to if they don’t quote it.

I had the thought that if everyone would post their images one quote level deep, it would have the benefit of being collapsed on subsequent replies. however this requires the original poster to know what they are doing, so although it is neat, it isn’t a solution.

Two things that i think could provide similar levels of “neat”

  1. assign a new style to any images within a quote block. this style can behave similar to the double quote block, where it collapses the image
  2. assign a new style to any images within a quote block. this style can scale the image to thumbnail size (HTML 5?)
  3. some variation on the above

Is it necessary to make all images thumbnail size? I understand why you wouldn’t want them huge, but about medium size or a little smaller?

They would only be resized in the quote, the original post would have full-size images.
