Is there a module or some other way of attaching an image to an image field by selecting the image from existing files on the server rather than upload a new image?
I'm working on a project where many nodes have an image field. That image is displayed in various places at different sizes using image styles.
The users are migrating from another system and they're very used to the "image library" concept. They like to upload images that they will later use in various places around the site. The standard image field on a node only lets you upload from the local file system.
Ideally we'd like to have a "browse server" button instead of the upload button but end up with the same resulting image field.
The Media module comes tantalizingly close and I'm sure we'll use it for videos etc but it creates a media asset field, not an image field which I don't think can be resized with image styles and used so easily in views etc.
I tried the image picker module late last night. Maybe I need to try it again but I don't think I quite understood it. We don't really want resizing and create thumbnails etc on the node edit screen. We really just want a way to create an image field where the path points to an existing file somewhere below /sites/default/files. The files will be uploaded with something like IMCE.
Thanks for any ideas.
