Real-Time Mouse Resizing of Images and Tables in Composer

All embeddors of the HTML editor can also enable or disable this feature. If an image is selected or if the caret is placed inside a table, eight resizing handles appear and allow to resize the image/table with a simple click/drag/release. In the case of an image, the resizing is done real-time and a semi-opaque shadow of the image at its target size is shown during resizing. A tooltip shows in real-time the target size in pixels, and the relative change in pixels too."

Even if you never use Composer or HTML mail composition, you'll want to try this out at least once because it looks really cool.

"Is there a setting to maintain aspect ratio whilst dragging (or is this enabled by default), as some of us have difficulty judging this sort of thing by eye whilst dragging."

The four corner handles maintain the aspect ratio. Personally, I'd like to be able to over-ride this (perhaps by pressing shift?) as it can be nice to do freehand resizing with just one handle.
