Easy.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <head>
    <title>Client-Side Image Resize (Why?!)</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      window.onload = function() {
        var url = "http://www.google.com/intl/en_ALL/images/logo.gif";
        var img = new Image();
        img.onload = function() {
          var w = parseInt((this.width + "").replace(/px/i, ""), 10);
          var h = parseInt((this.height + "").replace(/px/i, ""), 10);

          // 50% scale
          w = (w / 2) + "px";
          h = (h / 2) + "px";

          var htmlImg = document.createElement("img");
          htmlImg.setAttribute("src", url);
          htmlImg.setAttribute("width", w);
          htmlImg.style.width = w;
          htmlImg.setAttribute("height", h);
          htmlImg.style.height = h;
          document.body.appendChild(htmlImg);
        }
        img.src = url;
      }
    </script>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>Look, I'm Resized!</h1>
  </body>
</html>
