Article Image Selector

Here is a nice light weight image selector that actually works, just enable the plugin and goto the write tab, you will see a select box in place of the article image input, choose a image and see a preview of it below the select box.

Updated Image Selector to display all kinds of images, as well as display the name of the image on the selection list.
