If I understand correctly when I want to include pictures in my posts I need to upload them separately, worry about the filenames and which directory I put the files in.
Then, in the post I link to the picture with an <img> tag.
If I ever get around to converting my pages to blog/wordpress then almost every post would include pictures and I'd find it a real hassle to keep track of where everything is and what the filenames are. I also don't want to create thumbnails or resize originals myself.
Are there any developments in a direction that would put the pictures themselves in the database ?
or, an easy upload interface integrated into the write editor which would tightly couple the pics to the post.
also, I think I might want to write my own image plugin for the way I want thumbnails to expand to bigger images, could anyone point me to a plugin writing tutorial.
thanks for any answers!
