[WP 2.7 Request] Add an Image - Link Size (7 posts)

    I'd like to propose a change to inserting an image on a post.
    Don't get me wrong, i love the new version and admin tools, i just think there's room for a little improvement.

    When we are inserting an image from the gallery (regular WP gallery/not a plugin) we can choose a link URL, form "None", "File URL" or "Post URL".
    I'd like to be able to choose wich file URL i want to link to.

    Let me explain.
    We can choose how to insert the image further below, as a "Thumbnail", "Medium", "Large" or "Full Size".
    However, we always link to the full sized image, wich makes me edit it in Photoshop before uploading, so i can have an opened size standard.
    Sometimes it can be troublesome, as people who blog with me sometimes upload a screenshot of their Safari opened on a Mac, and it is usually bigger than expected.

    Setting up my "Large" size in Settings>Media, I can achieve this kind of control, showing the thumbnail and clicking to a pre-determined size i configured on my blog.
    Wich can be customized by any blogs using any layouts out there.

    What do you think?

    best regards

    I'm looking for this functionality as well. Having my clients that I build WP sites for resize their images doesn't work out too well. Actually having my clients do anything somewhat technical doens't work too well either :)

    I assume there HAS to be a plugin that changes this functionality. I'll continue my search...

    Me too, it seems like it should be easy... link to "large" image instead of full sized... I have a client who loves to upload 10 Megapixel photos... who needs that!?

    I have managed to create a custom plugin that does this, based on the plugin found here:
