You can have a look in the mediapool in the WordPress backend.

Yes, there is a function ‘wpp_picturehoster()’ which is basicly the same as the shortcode.

I plan to do an extra management page beside the normal mediapool.
Also there gonna be a plugin page with some settings, i.e. expiration date and so on.
