When you upload an image, it gets put under <install_dir> / wp-content/
uploads / year / month . The image on the server remains identical, so no
resizing or pre-processing is involved. A thumbnail is generated
on-the-fly, perhaps using PHP or ImageMagick. Set your editor to use
quicktags under Users at the very bottom (untick the box). Then, when
dragging an image thumbnail onto the writing area, only its full URL will
be copied. If you want to then make quick use of that URL, consider bits
alt="example" title="example" />
From my point-of-view, the process has been simplified tremendously. I
wonder if making this addition of code in the quicktags case would have
merit in terms of productivity.
In 1.5 there was no rich text editor, so one could argue that 2.0 is not
missing anything, as far as image handling is concerned.
