Exactly. I don't want a gallery, but I think it'd be a great feature to have a user-defined maximum (or maybe with a reasonable limit of, say, 3) of pictures to be displayed on one posting time. Like having something where, on the Add Image page, you have the default dialog box where you can upload the standard one picture and then beneath that, you could have a clickable-button that says "Add Another Photo?" and then when you click it, it displays another dialog box (and so on and so forth).
Let's say I have two pictures that, for example, I want to show the cause and effect of... With photo one that I want to upload, we have a falling object. In photo two, we have the result of the fall. Now, I don't want my visitor to have to go to another page to see the result as I'd rather just show them the cause and effect right there, plus it's easier for them.
You can say to composite it in PS but let's just say that I'm not home, instead I'm somewhere where the PC I'm uploading from has no Photoshop...I want to get them up and posted, showing the cause and effect, at one shot without having to write two descriptions, etc. or deal with copying and pasting or choosing categories, tags, and so on. It'd be nice to eliminate those extra steps and just get it done all at once. It should be a feature worth considering.
Just because you want to add a few pictures in one post doesn't mean you want to--or should have to--be using a gallery script. There are better scripts for gallery use and I feel people know that Pixelpost is not for that, but that doesn't mean it can't have the ability to do a little more. Addons are great and while this idea may not be the easiest feature to add into the base code (I don't know, I don't write PHP), it's an idea that is out there and should be, again, seriously considered. (and that addon previously mentioned kind of does a similar thing but you still need to use the Add Image screen more than once, which would be nice to not have to do in certain cases)
