Ticket #905 (closed New Feature: wontfix)
Quick Image Upload
|Reported by:||hunkymouse@…||Owned by:|
My problem is with the slow uploading of new pictures. I've used several Web CMS packages for my news site, and the most recent was the "Soditor"; and it shared a feature with yours of assuming that the picture I want to use is already on the site.
In fact, I almost never use an old pic, and five or six times a day AT LEAST I want to upload a new one - usually, a small 200 pixel wide picture.
What I want, more than anything, is a "one click upload" button.
It has in the past taken me very nearly five minutes to get a single new picture uploaded, because of the number of operations I have to go through before I can get to the magic "browse your system" button. That would be on an evening when there were no interruptions. If the Internet suffers a temporary glitch, I can do it several times, and have to start over.
What I want, is a button which opens a window onto my pictures, and lets me pick one. And if it's the right size, I then want to pick "upload" right away and see it appear in my HTML.
Is there a reason you don't do it this way? And even if there is, can I plead for a simple one?
Have a look at the way Typepad does it...
