Why is the option not available to add an image to a gallery from the already uploaded images in the Media Library? Must we continue to eat up our storage space with duplicate images? [In truth I have unlimited storage space, but I just don't like the idea duplicate images taking up space in my directories.]
I would like to be able to use the very same image in 10 different posts and 5 separate galleries [this is an exaggeration, but...]. So the way things are now, I would have to upload the same image no less than 5 times. I'd like to do this simply and without the need for a plugin or having to store my images in completely separate directory just to be able to use the URL option.
WordPress - I would like to request the addition of a new button to the Add Media>Media Library>Show module: Insert into Gallery. This would fit nicely between the existing Insert into Post button and the Use as featured image link. Please consider.
