[wp-hackers] Fwd: how do I insert a photo into a blog entry from my
shacker at birdhouse.org

A bit of good WP 2.5 UI feedback from a very tech-unsavvy user.

Looks like he's (quite intuitively) clicking on the image icon in the
main tinymce toolbar, which doesn't provide a Browse function, but
expects a URL. To browse to an image (surely this is the majority use
case) you have to click the first Add Media square. I can see why
I'd suggest removing the image icon from the toolbar altogether -- the
Add Media dialog already has a "From URL" field. The Add Image button
on the main toolbar only serves to confuse.
