Here’s a similar discussion – TL;DR, media library is a little bit more complexed to add into the system at that point, but there are a few ways (mainly through external integrations) where you can implement some sort of media control.
I think, Ghost CMS’s worst side is this. Media Library. We have to upload and upload again the same images. May be I can would like to use older image for future posts. Why I need to upload again for new post? Yes this is complex but they say " We’ve raised $5,000,000 " . I am happy an open source project provide to gain money but 7 years left and 5 million dollars gained so there is no media library. I think this feature is a milestone. I hope this will be added in the near future.
I migrated a site off the maven network via Wordpress into Ghost and I can tell you that the hardest part of the migration was having to work with the image library. Tedious. Not fun.
I don’t have many repetitive visual elements in my Ghost site – thechocolatelife.com – so for me, snippets were/are the way to go.
What I did was create a draft post with all of the common elements, upload my library images, then assign them to snippets. This means I can add a library element to the current post using the /name convention without having to focus attention away from writing.
So much faster and easier, and I learned that having a naming convention provides assistance in navigating the snippets by arranging common elements in groups in the / dropdown.
A team developed a prototype to have a native and visually appealing file and media manager. Especially adapted to a blog content manager, which is already wonderful as Ghost, but it would be even more wonderful to have such a feature.
Hopefully you can give visibility to the proposal (giving your support with votes or with comments about it within the proposal).
