In Magento 2 I see that the REST API only provides the path to the originally uploaded images. I would like to be able to use Magento's scaled thumbnails directly in my headless store front.
Ideally I want to modify the API so I get a path to the cached, scaled version of the thumbnail in addition to the original image. If the image is not already scaled, I would like it to happen automatically. I wonder if anyone has done anything like this before?
I don't really understand why this isn't a part of the API. Do people usually download the original image and scale/cache it in the front end system?
