[Feature Request] Image Resize And Editing

Hi Developers,

I have been using Bear as my only note app since I got the beta release. And it is FANTASTIC!!!!

But for a better improvement, I think some operations on images are necessary:
a). Resize the image after inserting it into a note.
b). Use Apple Pencil to annotate the image. For example, we can draw highlights or handwrite some notes on the image we have inserted.

    Hi Rocky,

    thanks for the feedback, we have plans for both image resizing and annotations but right now we are focusing on other tasks.

    Another supporter for resizing images, definitely needed much more than annotation. A simple sizing box feature would be so helpful. Thank you! Loving the Bear.

    +1 must have feature! For me simple crop would be enough. App is great. But this is the only reason I still didn’t buy sub.

    +1 to that. A resizing option is absolutely fundamental to any note taking app.

    Please add image resizing! I want to transfer all of my note-taking for school over to bear but without this feature it's not really possible for me to use bear at all
