with v2 of WordPress, a new upload feature has been included to the 'Write' page.
When I upload an image with that feature and add the iamge to a post, WordPress always adds the picture as a small preview thumbnail - I was unable to find a way to insert the image in its original size.
Maybe I am missing something, but even the functions of an uploaded image's context menu do not help - whatever settings I choose, WordPress always inserts thumbnails instead of the original image. Tried it with IE and FF - no difference.
Also: it would be cool if the path of an uploaded image (or file) would be displayed in the new upload section.
