Featured photo in tools, not gallery settings

Please make it possible to feature a photo straight from the tools menu, under Use As.

In legacy we could choose the featured image right from the gallery:


In new smug, we have to leave the page we're on (staring at the photo we want to feature), go into gallery settings, and try to find the same image from the tiny thumbnails:


Yes, I know there is the preview button that appears when you click on a thumbnail, but this is still a much slower process than it was in legacy. Why the change? There's a perfect spot in the menu for it.

Also, please put everything else back into the tools menu that has moved elsewhere. It's just not as efficient as it used to be.

    The worst part is just about everything in organize is using very tiny thumbs/images and no file name/image No./info.

    Yeah...I tend to upload a gallery and then as I'm scrolling through it, decide on the photo I'd like to feature...and it makes a whole lot more sense to do it right then and there.

    To Allen's point, I wish the organizer looked something like a variation on smugmug gallery style so that you could either hover or click a thumbnail and have it appear in a slightly larger window.

    FYI, in Firefox/Windows, I can double-click on the photo to go into the Lightbox mode to get the larger image (which is faster than going up to click the "View" button, but I'd still prefer to stay on the same screen.
