Can we change the image URL from this: http://mywebsite.com/?qa=image&qa_blobid=8419242312434086559&qa_size=52
to this: http://mywebsite.com/image/8419242312434086559.png?

I'm asking because the current Q2A setup, which stores images as blobs in the database, creates too much load on the database in case the website traffic is high. If we change the image URL to direct image links by storing the images in AWS S3 storage, there will be a significant performance improvement on the Q2A site.

Can we create a plugin or make changes to the Q2A core to modify the image URLs and store images on S3 rather than in the database as blobs?
