It would be great if 'choose file' in the image field would be able to handle other input sources than only the client's OS file manager; Amazon S3/cloud storage, Dropbox, an image folder on an intranet, another folder on the same server where PW is installed, whatever. It would be super convenient if you could just upload images to a folder/directory in the templates folder or root, without any processing, and be able to access that as a source option in the image field. Any way to make that happen? I had started a thread about this here. BitPoet posted a very helpful partial solution specifically for Zenphoto, but it would be great if there was a more source agnostic solution built into Processwire. Letting Processwire download images from any external media gallery/repository would be a good alternative to having a full centralized Media Manager. Or am I missing something that would make this impossible/a bad idea? Edit: Robin S has a module that adds one alternative input option.
Is there a way to change the input options for the images field? I am trying to figure out if it would make sense to use an external script like Zenphoto as a central media library/manager. How could I connect that with Processwire? 'Choose File' in the images field would have to be able to open that 3rd party media library or a directory on the server or some cloud service instead of (only) the client file manager. Could justb3a's field type module Image Extra be part of the solution? I will try that and report back. Other field types/modules? I know there is a pro module Media Manager that does look very slick, but would prefer to make this work with a mature, tested 3rd party script if a central media gallery is never going to be a core Processwire feature.
