Literally, a picture is worth a thousand The present invention, generally speaking, provides an words. The capture of digital images has become routine, 25 improved web-based media submission tool. As with some using digital cameras and scanners. Nevertheless, although existing tools, operation of the tool is drag and drop or the user the handling of images by website creators has achieved a can "click" to browse a directory to select media objects. high degree of automation, for the average technology user Unlike existing tools, the tool provides several unique and (the "imaging civilian"), manipulating and sharing digital valuable functions. For example, the tool provides the user an images over the Internet remains a cumbersome and daunting 30 opportunity to confirm the submission with a visual represen- process. Piecemeal solutions that have been devised for han- tation, for example by generating a thumbnail image of the dling digital images require a level of sophistication that is rich media file that has been selected. Additionally, batch beyond that of the ordinary user. For example, transferring a submission is provided to allow a user to drag and drop or digital image may require first downloading a FTP program, select a plurality of images or other media objects.
