[wp-testers] thumbnail settings

Hey Guys,

I'm working on some WordPress 3.0 Media stuff at the moment and need 
some advice.

Lets say I make a page. Add 10 images. Now when I open a Gallery, choose 
an image and then subsequently click Edit Image, there is this new 
little Thumbnail Settings box over on the right - but it doesn't seem to 
do anything (ok I haven't tried using it in anything but Chrome yet).

When I drag a selection over the main image on the left then presumably 
the thumbnail image on the right hand side should change to reflect 
whatever is in between your crop marks back over on the left. And thus 
it should kind of work like thumbnail settings in Facebook right? Just 
for that one image right.

So is this something being worked on now for 3.0? Perhaps if there is an 
open ticket for this we could look at it since I want this functionality.

Also. I work a lot on this kind of thing and I think that the wording of 
the options underneath the words "Apply changes to:" should be changed, 
preferably the first option should be "Thunbnail. In fact I've never 
ever come across a situation where you might want to crop "All image 

Right I know what you're thinking (maybe), I'm guessing that this option 
means hey lets crop and scale the big picture too so its the same but 
bigger - but its not really clear thats what you mean when the option is 
under Thumbnail Settings.

Maybe the words "All images sizes" should be changed to something like 
"Main Image" or "Big Picture too". Urghhh its too late to be writing and 
I'm not thinking particularly straight - I'm just trying to illustrate 
how there may be a little potential confusion for some people.

I know you're out there Mr Word man!! Make it better :)

Thanks guys!!
