I have been using a content type Article with an Image field to allow users to upload images. I have decided that I want to use media image entities instead because the images will be re-used on multiple nodes, so it would be better to use a module like Entity Browser to allow admins to pick the images they want to use.
Following this tutorial, I set up Media Entity, Media Entity Image, Embed, and Embed Entity on my site. I can now add entities from the
But, with using this set of modules, the workflow has changed.
Image field on content type workflow
- User uploads images in the field when creating a node.
Media entity image + content type/embed workflow
- User uploads images.
- User creates a node.
- User embeds the images on the node.
So actually this new workflow has more steps than the old one. Is there a way to "embed" creation of media entities as if it was just an image field attached to the content type?
