Photo resize on upload?

Is there an option to resize photos on upload?

Often a user will take whatever is in their camera or on their disk and upload it even if it is a huge image (in size and / or disk space consumed). In gallery software I have manually implemented, I have used the GD library to resize photos on upload so that they are no larger than some pre-defined width and height that I specify. This allows for a good image but without consuming lots of storage space.

The powergallery does resize the images. It creates 4 different versions for the different sizes shown in each gallery view. It doesn't conserve size however, since it keeps a copy of the original image so that it can show the full size view, and so that if it needs to create more size variations in the future it can use the original instead of using a copy of a copy.
