Just wanted to share/discuss some thoughts on the new media library manager. Let me paste from a comment on Peter Westwood's blog:
I'm not very fond on the new media library. I just wanted to insert some thumbnails on a post. Now, i have to:
1. Upload them. Nice feature this one, the bulk upload.
2. Click on gallery
3. Choose the last one (how can they be ordered by name???), click on image, check thumbnail, click on insert into post
4. The “media manager” closes. Ooops. Still have to insert 6 more images… :S
I guess this feature is nice if you want to use the gallery functionality. But for those posts where you just want to add images, now it takes more clicks and time… :(
About the gallery: I think it isn’t configurable enough to be usable. For example, i’d use it if i could link from the thumbnail directly to the original image, without getting the intermediate (medium size) thumbnail. Is it doable?
