I'm at a bit of a crossroads and very confused, which image module should I use?
Here's what I (Ideally) want to do:
Users of the website should be able to go to post an image article (a type I created with cck) - add the title, choose the taxonomy terms, add the body text and hen "Upload image" from their own desktop with the help of a button.
Img package:: http://drupal.org/node/230614 has helped me do this.
However, the images people attach are rather large, and really need to be viewed that way as well, so that there should be a small image in the post, and a larger image when you click on it (in it's own page, navigation not needed for this display but it would be nice if it was a page rather than the way I do it now, which is simply create two image manually and link the larger image as image.jpg)
Looks like image node does this: http://drupal.org/handbook/modules/image
But, image node also creates galleries and now I no longer have that neat "Upload image" helpful (from a users point of view) button. Instead the have to create an image (node) and then the article node they wanted to create? This seems rather cumbersome, and users would be lost (though administrators may not be).
Ideally, I'd want a watermark on the images as well, which I see image node can do, though I have not tested it yet and I feel this is a less pressing matter as long as I can find a user friendly way of attaching images to a certain type of node without having to first create the image node.
(Does that make any sense? I'm lost in all the image options available.)
This snippet of code here, make images clickable to original size seems like exactly what I wish to do - however, again the image module is not like the img package with the super-helpful "attach image" (from an end user point of view) so I'm not even sure that I can use this information.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Also, I want to move to Drupal 6 as soon as the modules I rely on allow (there quite a few missing for me). Might this be a totally different headache once I get there? If that is the case, perhaps I should just wait?
