Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Cover blocks currently show full-size images. Users upload images that are too large for the dimensions of the cover block, then have no way of selecting a more appropriately sized image. I see massive load times and resource use on large multisites with admins who have no image-editing experience.

Describe the solution you'd like
Until the overarching issue with image sizes is address (see #6177) is addressed, I'd like to add a single "Background Image Size" select.

Describe alternatives you've considered
We tell users to load smaller images, but many users do not know how to optimize their images.

Howdy @bbertucc and thanks for opening this issue.

Initially I thought it to be a good idea, options!, but then ... why would one ever select thumbnail for backgroung in a cover block? And the same case can be made about any other size. This is one of those situations where the options do more harm then good.

Adding a background size selector doesn't make much sense considering the large amount of screen sizes and densities on which content can potentially be shown.

I will close this as implementing this enhancement could potentially cause more problems than it solves, not a soution yet. Thank you :)
