UploadField thumbnails?

Hi All, as per this tutorial:

I've included an image field in one of my custom page types. However, when one clicks "Attach a file" -> "From files", there are no thumbnails in the list view. Also, UploadField seems to automatically create an 'Upload' folder, which is not something that I want.

So, my questions are:

1) How can I show thumbnails when users are using UploadField to attach images that already exist in the assets folder
2) How can I stop UploadField creating an "Uploads" folder? Further, can I set UploadField to default to a specific subfolder in assets?

Think the Uploads folder always exists by default. See if setFolderName below helps.

function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

      // Image
      $imageField = new UploadField('TeamMemberImage','Team Member Image');
      $imageField->getValidator()->setAllowedExtensions(array('jpg', 'jpeg', 'png'));
      $imageField->setConfig('allowedMaxFileNumber', 1);
      // Add
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Images', $imageField);

      return $fields;
