creating link to large/medium image while inserting in text (6 posts)

    When I', inserting image in text (inline through visual editor) there is text field for "Link URL" with three buttons (none, file url, post url).

    I want to make a link to resized image (medium or large), because original is usualy to big.

    I know, I cau use "Post Url", but I need just image url, to show images in lightbox.

    As I understand the code I think I need function similar to wp_get_attachment_thumb_url (wp_get_attachment_medium_url), but I lost myself while trying to make it.

    thanks, for you help

    Found the solution ... you need to edit wp-admin/includes/media.php

    function image_link_input_fields($post, $url_type = '') {
    	//$file = wp_get_attachment_url($post->ID);
    	$aFile = wp_get_attachment_image_src($post->ID, 'large');
    	$file = $aFile[0];
    	$link = get_attachment_link($post->ID);

    Problem with this solution is if you modify image (reupload image with different dimensions) the link will become invalid.

    Is there an update on this matter? Does anyone know a plugin or something enabling us to choose to link to another image than the full size one?

    How is it that there's still no plugin for this - or better yet it's not a built in WP feature??

    There is an easy way to add an additional button with a filter in your functions.php template file...

    I'm playing around with this filter to make 'medium image' and 'none' the only two options.
