Recently i'm using the awesome files of jaredatch (https://github.com/jaredatch/Custom-Metaboxes-and-Fields-for-WordPress) to create custom metaboxes and fields. I'm still learning about this part and right now i have a question about the image uploader.
The default image uploader in Wordpress is not user friendly enough for my website. So i want to change it.
I used the Advanced Custom Fields plugin (http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/) once, and the image uploader that they made is perfect. After uploading, the user sees a small thumbnail of the image with a button "select image". This is much better than the settings page of the image in my case.
I uploaded an image so you can see the difference (The default screenshot is an older version): http://oi46.tinypic.com/2wlwr45.jpg
I can't find tutorials with similar results. Do you know some? Is there an easy way to transform the image upload file? I don't know where to start.
