Hi, I have encountered this issue with several websites that I have been working on recently.
Some of my sites have a sub-header image which sits in the middle content column, so for each top level navigation section there is a different picture. When I use the ImageFeild and save and publish, i go to the next page to add the image and a new file appears called 'new image' and when i am dealing with a fairly large site I get a huge long list of these building up thus slowing down the rate at which I can work (dropdown takes longer to load each time) and it makes it tedious scrolling past them all.
See attached image
Why is this file being created and how can I stop it? Do I just have to clear my cache every so often?

Don't have the answer, but I ran into this same problem with the last site I just built which was the first time I used the image field like that.
I was also getting 404 errors in that area after attaching an image from the file store.
There might be a ticket in the bug tracker, though I'm not too sure. If not, there should be one.
*Edit* What I just did was delete the files in the images/files tab. It's not a fix, but it's something to help clear them up.

I have experienced this also.
Some sites it does it and some sites it doesn't.
I have no knowledge of what I am doing different to cause this problem.

I found a way removing all the "New image" in the dropdownlist by flushing the image:
-> Flush all of the generated images.
If you find were in the code you can add a fix...
