Check this out! The image editor and upload improvements have come a huge way since we last showed Mateusz's work back in July. The code is currently publicly available for download via Subversion and will be released in SilverStripe 2.2.
Beautiful, powerful image editor
Will collaborated with Mateusz to provide a slick design to the image editor, which allows image rotation, cropping, resizing, and undoing your actions... (all using HTML, CSS, AJAX, PHP5; not Flash)
Allow multiple file-uploads, with progress bar
I often find when managing the silverstripe.com that I need to upload serveral files at once. Uploading them using a normal HTML INPUT field is slow and tedius so Mateuz used a tool we found on Ajaxian to add a bulk-file upload feature to SilverStripe, including progress bars...
Streamlining uploading photos into the WYSIWYG editor
Past time constraints had meant the means to upload photos into the WYSIWYG page editor required you to jump into the Files and Images section, and that made it a longer process than necessary. It was just a case of finding a volunteer to improve it, so I'm incredibly thankful to Mateusz who squeezed this great improvement into his busy schedule!
You'll note the new add folder option, as well as being able to upload multiple files at once.
Usability and garbage collection
Mateuz also fixed a number of usability issues with the Files and Images section, such as improving pagination. He also put considerable work into a feature that allows you to determine which images you don't use on your website, so you can delete them with confidence!
