Comment (by azaozz):

 In [changeset:"46076" 46076]:
 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="46076"
 Media: Add handling for "BIG" images. When the users upload a big image,
 typically a photo, scale it down to make it suitable for web use. Then use
 the scaled image as the "full" size, and keep the originally uploaded
 image for creating high quality sub-sizes in the future and in case the
 users want to download it later.

 Introduces `wp_get_original_image_path()` that retrieves the path to the
 originally uploaded image in all cases, and `big_image_size_threshold`
 filter to set the pixel value above which images will be scaled. The same
 value is used as max-width and max-height when scaling.

 See #47873.
