[#1540] Add API Route for Creating Categories

Add an API route for Admin's to create new categories. A GET to the

Category dropdown.

Images are passed in with base-64 encoding. The route decodes, saves,
scales, & optimizes them. When the operation is successful, it inserts
the Category into the database & returns the new Category's ID.
