Quick Image Upload

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...

I don't think it would be a huge improvement. The file would have to be uploaded to th server anyway so the time would be almost exactly the same. The only solution would be that the image preview would be added to the editing area directly from your local machine while the picture itself would be uploaded in the background. It could determine many mistakes and the image would have to be checked the same way as it is now, so this approach wouldn't gain so much time.

Anyway thanks for posting. Every idea is more than welcome.

Best regards.
