It would be awesome if Magento had a better form of image management for both product images and content images. So view/edit existing images or re-use a previously uploaded image.
And also providing some form of editing for last minute cropping, rotating etc.
Maybe use something like Aviary for this, instead of building it - https://developers.aviary.com/

Hello @bsstaveley. thank you for your suggestion!
We are working on improving Image Management. We have already discussed about sharing media across whole system and ability to edit images. These use-cases were added to our backlog for implementation.

Please consider adding entropy based smart cropping too. The linked example requires ImageMagick 6.7.5 which is slightly higher than Magento's own requirements, perhaps there are other open source options.
