Currently I am working on “upload while in the editor” as Sigurd called this.

[url]http://www.ii.uj.edu.pl/~ujma/upload/imageUpload.htm[/url]

It’s not done but I want to give demo to ensure myself that I’m on good path.

> 4. When image is inserted, downsize it so its not way bigger than the width of my editor (e.g. over say 800px?). Chances are I don't want it this big, and its a pain to reduce the size!

Sigurd: I couldn’t reproduce situation that you have written about. As I looked in the code the max size of image inserted to TinyMCE can be 600x600 [px].

(Automatic insertion into TinyMCE is the next thing to do)

Wicked, that is much more streamlined than our current process.

I think it would be great to be able to get into the crop/rotate editor here too. For instance you could right click on the thumbnail and have "edit photo" as an option.

Mujma this is really awesome stuff.

I also support Sig's idea of having cropping and scaling in the editor. Further I would like to see contextual toolbar icons for image operations, (which would be possible if we get [url=http://www.silverstripe.com/google-summer-of-code-forum/flat/2536]Tim's idea[/url] implemented) rather than having so many icons in the editor.

Nice work! No more having to drop into the Files & Image section to upload an image! :-)

Finally code landed in repository (r39615) for now there is one small issue in IE6/IE7 I spend almost day on it but I couldn't fix it :(, I will work on that later this week. Thanks for feedback I will try to implement your ideas as soon as I will finish my scheduled work.
