I've been running Drupal on a number of non-work related project for more than two years. I'm now currently working on implementing/promoting Drupal for the Intranet at my "day job" which will be used by employees of various levels of skill in IT. One of the most confusing aspects about Drupal is finding the right suite of "image" modules from a usability point of view for my users. I'm not new to Drupal, but with regards to images I still feel like one confused newbie.
Most of my experience is with the Image module and/or IMCE (though still fuzzy whether they compete or complement one another). Image Picker and a host of other contributed modules also intrigue me.
So I have some questions for those with more experience in this matter, what suite/combination of image modules would you use to support a Drupal-based intranet? Which combination of modules makes the most sense from a usability point of view, especially when the user needs to upload images to the server, display/link to images in a post, and or display the images in a photo gallery? If someone asked you to produce a Drupal Installation profile for handling images, what image modules/configuration would you choose to include in that profile? If it helps to know, we will also be implementing a WYSIWYG editor, more than likely TinyMCE or FCKEditor.
