Any plugin out there that uses WP’s internal image uploader?

The question:

I’m trying to use the media uploader thing from WP (the form from the pop-up with crunching and all that), and can’t figure out how.

Is there any plugin out there that uses it? It would be easier to understand…

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

The plugin Image Widget uses it.

Method 2

This is the best tutorial there is on using the (old, pre-3.3, non-Plupload) media uploader.
