Up to now, I've been using the Insert + WYSIWYG + CKEditor to insert images with specific Image Styles in a wysiwyg interface. This works well, and it's very easy to select and apply image styles (including colorbox variants) using Insert.
I'm currently testing Media (7.2x) + WYSIWYG + CKEditor as an alternative, and want to make sure I understand how to best use image styles in this context.
Based on a great write-up here (http://www.58bits.com/blog/2013/03/06/how-to-add-captions-to-images-in-drupal), it looks like one way to use Image Styles with Media is to do something like this:
- Create desired image styles to use in WYSIWYG editor
- Add view mode(s) as needed to the Image file type
- Set view mode(s) to use desired image styles under Manage File Display
- Choose "Format" (view mode) when embedding Media
Ultimately, this is more powerful than Insert, since the view modes can manage more than just the image (i.e. other fields like title, alt, and more) but it's a little clunky. For one thing, you'd need to add a new view mode for each image style that you want to have access to when embedding (?)
My question: is this currently the best way to use image styles when embedding images using Media (7.2x) + WYSIWYG + CKEditor?
