I'm trying to create an image repository with Drupal, but I face some problems.
I want to create a node with several images attached, but since the relation between images to nodes can be many-to-many (an image can be attached to more than one node) I don't want to duplicate the same image on the server.
I've tried different solutions but none of them can really fit my needing.
I can easily attach multiple images to a node, but it's hard to reuse the same image.
The best solution would be using filefield_sources, but it's a bit buggy (I can't find a way to use the IMCE integration in a proper way).
It has an image browser, but without search or folder tree, it can't be used with many images.
Did anybody face the same problem and found a good solution? Thanks in advance.
Product-1 - I can attach Image-A, Image-B, Image-C and Image-D (with image module or imagefield)
Product-2 - I can attach Image-E, Image-F, Image-G and Image-H
Product-3 - I want to attach Image-A and Image-F.
I need to upload them again or I can use Image Browse (part of the Image module) to display an image picker with ALL the images uploaded before (without any search filed or filter).
I see 8 images, I can pick Image-A and Image-F and attach them to the node.
What about Product-1200? At that time I could have 4000 images displayed in Image Browse: it would be really hard to find the one I need to attach to the node! I would like to find a better way to select the images!
I created two content types: product and image.
Image has an imagefield field.
Product has a nodereference field. I mass imported all my images with imagefield_import.
I use nodereference_browser with a custom view with all the filters I need to search between Image nodes and select which one to reference.
