Adding Photos

I wonder if anyone else has ...
... clicked on "Choose File"
... selected their photograph
... clicked on "Open"
and then gone off to do something else while the photo is uploaded only to come back a few minutes later to find that nothing has happened because they've not clicked "Attach this photo"?

I've done it several times: obviously a slow learner ;)

Is there any reason why "Open" doesn't start the downloading process?

And while we're at it, there are times (for example when a download hangs or when you realise mid-download that you've made a mistake) when it would be useful to be able to cancel a download. Would a "Cancel" button be possible?

Me, too...

... I have often wondered why we have to choose the pic, then choose again to upload it, when it "feels" as though the uploading has already been done, ie it takes a while, and you can see the thumbnail.

Presumably the original coding allowed this second check to be the "cancel" facility but, as Ian says, it would be far more useful to be able to cancel an upload that is "hanging".

And yes, I have also sat there waiting... waiting... oops, press "upload".
