I have noticed a number of postings coming through lately without images but with descriptions that suggest the user thought their image would appear. (If a user is posting an observation without an image I would expect them to add a fair amount of description, rather than just a few words. Some titles also suggest what we might see in a missing image (e.g. 'Short life of a butterfly'.)
I suspect that users may be browsing for their (single) image in the Add Observation page but then failing to click the 'Attach the photo' button, filling in the rest of the fields then clicking Save. I don't know if it's worth the site admins asking a few posters of non-image Observations whether they had intended to upload an image?
I think it would be useful to add a check to the saving of an observation to check the 'Select a photo' field and if it has the text for a photo either add the image automatically or inform the user that they haven't attached their image yet (allowing a save anyway override).
