As the title says: Is there a hook for the popup window which shows up when you click on the edit button on an image in a post?

It might be better to upgrade to 3.5 before asking media UI questions. This version will be released in some days and massively change everything. –  kaiser Dec 3 '12 at 14:53
Thank you for the comment but unfortunately I need that now. But I'll have a look at 3.5 –  Stephan S. Dec 3 '12 at 14:55
Then just update to 3.5 RC1. Will simplify your life a lot. –  kaiser Dec 3 '12 at 14:57

add_filter( 'attachment_fields_to_edit', 'attachment_fields_to_edit', null, 2 );
add_filter( 'attachment_fields_to_save', 'attachment_fields_to_save', null, 2 );

function attachment_fields_to_edit( $form_fields, $post ) {
    $form_fields['my_attachment_field'] = array(
        'label' => 'My Label',
        'input' => 'text',
        'value' => get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_my_attachment_field', true )

    return $form_fields;

function attachment_fields_to_save( $post, $attachment ) {
    if ( ! empty( $attachment['my_attachment_field'] ) )
        update_post_meta( $post['ID'], '_my_attachment_field', $attachment['my_attachment_field'] );
        delete_post_meta( $post['ID'], '_my_attachment_field' );

    return $post;

Thank you but that was not what I was looking for, I was looking for a hook to edit the content/add form fields when I click on edit image in a post and not in the media library - see my opening post. –  Stephan S. Dec 4 '12 at 13:50
