I added similar to our framework recently.You can see a cut down version at: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/kevinjohn-gallagher-pure-web-brilliants-image-controls/
Modern Tribe's IMAGE WIDGET plug-in is also an excellent place to start.

> Any advice or pointers to plugins to study would be much appreciated.
