Searchable Uploads

    I have a number of both stand-alone and hosted blogs using the WordPress CMS.

    I have noticed that when you accumulate a lot of "uploads" (images, etc) that if you want to use the same image again at a later date; you have to manually go through the uploads. Or finding the post that it was used in and getting the url. Or manually going through the database via ftp.

    What would be great is if we could search "uploads" to find the image. So a search function built into the "uploads" page.

    We are already naming and describing our images etc that we upload (I do at any rate - I live in hope) be great if we could search these descriptions and names to find the content that we were wanting to use again.

    Then again this might be totally off the mark and noone can see the point! But I know that I would find it very helpful.

    You can search from both the upload popup and from the Media Library now.
