I'm developing a web site, not documentation-related, in Drupal 6. I agree
that image management is a mess. It takes several modules to get stuff to
work the way you think it should out of the box; I hope 7 is a lot better in
that regard.

Here's a list of modules I have installed:
ImageField
WYSIWYG
WYSIWYG Image Upload (I think they're two separate modules)
Image
ImageCache & ImageCacheUI

If you have other questions, let me know.

Hope this helps,
-=Ed.

I'm hoping there are some other Drupal users out there who can help with an
image-management question. We just started using Drupal 6 for creating user
guides. We're using the Image Picker module (
http://drupal.org/project/imagepicker) to upload images, but the process is
tedious when you have multiple images to upload. With Image Picker, it looks
like you can upload only one image at a time.

If you're using Drupal, which version are you using? I've heard that the
core functionality in Drupal 7 is better for uploading images.
Unfortunately, we can't upgrade to Drupal 7 for a while. If you're using
version 6, which image-uploading module are you using?
