 WP.org Themes: Use Photon for theme screenshots.

 The Theme Directory feeds off of images to illustrate themes, so we will
 have a sizable footprint. In listings, screenshots are retina, so four
 the size they could be, on single they are over 700px wide. No reason not
 try our best to keep it managable though!

 Using Photon will cut page weight to about half of what it is now.
 We're adjusting the size to only what we need and remove all meta data.
