Attach Image to Page with Uploadify

Go to End

We want to use Uploadify so CMS users can simply upload images that are then attached to Pages. At the basic level this is the code:

class Page extends SiteTree {

	static $has_many = array(
		"PageImages" => "PageImage"

	function getCMSFields(){
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.PageImages", new MultipleFileUploadField('PageImages','Add Images to Page'));		
		return $fields;

class PageImage extends Image {
 	static $has_one = array(
		"Page" => "Page"

However when a file is Uploaded through the "Upload New" tab it isn't automatically attached to the page. We thought this would be the default behaviour.

Instead CMS users have to click on the "Choose existing" tab and select/ Import the images they are after.

I'm guessing we've missed something very very simple, any help would be appreciated.
