With Media in D7, it looks as though there are two big options for storing information in additional fields with images:
- Use an Image Content Type with an Image field and media file selector, together with fields for title, description, location etc and store as content nodes
- Use an Image Media File Type and add fields for title, description, location etc but store as file nodes
So I'm wondering what are the main advantages and disadvantages of each approach - especially with regards to future-proofing the site?
At the moment, I can see an advantage with option 1 in that you can set publishing options to create revisions etc
However, there's an advantage to option 2 in that you can upload multiple files (using plupload) creating a single node for each image, that can then be edited with information for the additional fields.
