Resizes and/or compresses an image. Larger images will be scaled down to fit the maximum height/width value. Aspect ratio is preserved.

The resultant image will be stored in the device's temporary files folder, with an autogenerated unique ID for its filename. You can use the Move/rename file/directory flow function to move it to a permanent location.
