We would like to add it in a future release. Automatically adding it the post brings some tricky issues and we haven't come up with a way to implement it so it is intuitive for users.
Some of the issues with this are:
- How is the image added? What markup is used? Every blog is different, we can't just take a one size fits all approach. Do we just make it the first item? Do we align it left/right/center?
- What happens when you have multiple Post Image fields on a form? Where do those images go? Do they just stack?
It's not as simple as just automatically inserting the image... each blog may handle them differently as far as markup, orientation, etc.
It is something we would like to add if we can solve for the usability issues. Our first priority is making the plugin power AND easy to use, we don't want to just cram features in and risk cluttering up the admin. So we will always take that into account when introducing new features and functionality.
If you have any suggestions, we are all ears... we would love to figure out a good way to do it.
