I have a node type that uses Fuploader image field widget. When a user creates new a node of this type, I want them to be able to use the fuploader widget to upload images. When the user edits that node at some point, I want to switch to the normal imagefield widget. How can I accomplish this?
I would suggest creating two different content types. One would be shown when the user creates something new, and the other when they want to edit. They could share most of the data using the Add Existing Field option, but I think you might need to run Rules after the new content is created, to create a duplicate node of the other content type, using the same information.
