The uploading part is pretty cool I think. I wish Gmail for instance would 
use something similar.

There is still room for improvements, though. I've just written an article 
with several screenshots and, while it's been a breeze to upload all the 
images and get them thumbnailed in one click, inserting them one by one in 
the post has been a real infuriating pain because the damn lightbox closes 
when you click "Insert into post", so you have to reopen it.

I think it should:
- auto close when clicking on "Insert" if there are no other images in the 
current gallery
- wait for your manual closing otherwise.
