Inline Edit Default Image Scaling

I think I lean towards scaling being a non-default feature.

BTW: Have you considered an SVG image for non-IE browsers (to support smooth zooming)>:
( As of 2009, all major desktop browsers, and many minor browsers, have some level of SVG support, except for Internet Explorer. Other browsers' implementations are not yet complete; see Comparison of layout engines for further details. As of 2010[update], only Opera, Safari and Google Chrome supported embedding via the <img> HTML element. Mozilla Firefox and some other browsers that can display SVG graphics currently need them embedded in <object> or <iframe> elements to display them integrated as parts of an HTML webpage.[46] However, SVG images may be included in XHTML pages using XML namespaces.[47]
