[Mediawiki-l] Image Scaling on Upload?

Is there a quick and easy way to automagically re-size uploaded  
images so they fit within some maximum size? If so, a quick "RTFM"  
pointer is all I need.

I have a bunch of folks with 8 megapixel cameras who want to upload  
images. They aren't sophisticated enough to re-size their images.  
They're used to flikr.com (et. al.) websites that simply deal with it.

I can accept the one-time hit of the initial upload, but don't want  
to have to re-size it every time a thumb is generated, or pump the  
whole thing over every time someone clicks on a thumb.

I have ImageMagik installed and working.

Thanks for any thoughts or ideas!
