 Realized that we had a long discussion and I didn't summarize here. Not
 sure if anybody is actually tackling this at this point, but in short I
 think the biggest problem is that having multiple image controls visible
 at once is extremely overwhelming and we should at least make some kind of
 overture at how that could be addressed. The placement within that panel
 almost doesn't really matter at the moment because it's a lot to process
 visually in any order. I think there are some pretty solid ideas for
 changes to image controls to make them more compact, including #35943, but
 recognize that it would be a broader change than one would hope to be
 making at this point.

 Excerpting part of the conversation here for easier reference:

 > helen: Sure. I still think image controls look pretty wild and are maybe
 even overly large for something you are allegedly live previewing.

 > melchoyce: I think we can definitely simplify
 > Do we need full buttons for “remove” and “change image"

 > helen: Do they really need to be so big when it’s being displayed in
 context anyway?

 > melchoyce: Also true
 > Though horizontal logos at least won’t look so big

 > helen: Full buttons: possibly not? That’s perhaps a change that needs
 testing done.

 > melchoyce: Yeah, I’d want to redesign image controls totally
 independently of this
 > I think an X suffices for remove (like when you add a header image, and
 your old ones show up below with X to remove)
 > And my gut reaction is to always click an image to replace or edit it

 > helen: Sure, and we have the pencil/X paradigm in the editor already,

 > celloexpressions: I agree on the x and click-to-edit (edited)
 > header images also use the X to remove in the customizer

 > helen: Maybe not really a controversial change
 > Anyway, I know that we’d rather think about it independently, etc., but
 I’m not sure about shipping this in an overwhelming state.
