UX Flow for Image Uploading and Editing

@teamadesign has created a detailed workflow chart for uploading and editing images in WordPress.

We can use this thread to interrogate the workflow and see how we can streamline it. If you’re interested please leave comments. We’re interested in the following:
1. Which steps can we remove from the workflow?
2. Can any steps be combined?
3. Are there any paths that are confusing?
4. Is their any functionality or options that we can remove completely?
