When  you  upload an image, it gets put under <install_dir> /  wp-content/
uploads  / year / month . The image on the server remains identical, so no
resizing   or  pre-processing  is  involved.  A  thumbnail  is   generated
on-the-fly,  perhaps  using  PHP or ImageMagick. Set your  editor  to  use
quicktags  under  Users  at the very bottom (untick the box).  Then,  when
dragging  an image thumbnail onto the writing area, only its full URL will
be  copied. If you want to then make quick use of that URL, consider  bits

<p align="center">
<img src="[domain]/[path]/wp-content/uploads/year/month/example.jpg"
alt="example" title="example" />

 From  my  point-of-view, the process has been simplified  tremendously.  I
wonder  if  making this addition of code in the quicktags case would  have
merit in terms of productivity.

In  1.5 there was no rich text editor, so one could argue that 2.0 is  not
missing anything, as far as image handling is concerned.

Best wishes,
