If you want to continue editing images ad infinitum that’s up to you and there’s nothing wrong with that. Not everybody has the skills, knowledge or time to do that and seeing as how modifying core code is no longer recommended (since 2007) in phpBB an extension would be the way to go. The OP asked:

Is there a way to fix this through a source code modification?
hence my reply.
No. Your immediate default answer was to direct him to the Extensions Forum and if he couldn't find anything, to then request an Extension. You made no reference whatsoever to core code changes in your response.
You are correct though, not everybody has the skills to resize images, but there are plenty of online resources that will do this for free and in batches. Doing that would be a lot quicker than having to request an Extension that most likely nobody will create anyway, espcially when it's a simple fix that doesn't actually require an Extension in the first place.
As mentioned earlier, I asked the question previously in 2017 and got so much "support", I actually sussed it out myself, it was quicker.
