I really HEART images in my post.
It is a rare thing indeed to find one of my posts that doesn’t have an image. But sometimes I just wish that WordPress would bring back the old school version of the image uploader instead of booting up the modal-window every time.
I found the best WordPress Plugin for the month of February: Faster Image Insert.
Essentially it has your image uploader right below your posting area instead of having to click (and wait) for the modal-window to pop up.
