Currently once you upload an image it just leaves you back at screen. We should consider on success offering next steps. We could use this as a chance to add encouragement:

Mhmm, actually I like the way, that it stays in the same screen, because its easier to procced woth uploading more media. But indeed, it would be a nice idea to add a success message, behind the progress bar.

I feel like there should be a better way to allow copying the data for the uploaded files.

In its present state, to copy the media's URL, you need to right-click and copy the Image URL and that URL is for the thumbnail size (150x150 by default) which involves one more step of editing the URL manually.

To copy/edit any other attributes of the media, you need to click on the "Edit" link which is a _blank link.

While the use for direct URLs might not be very popular for images, users do need direct URLs for media such as PDFs and ZIP files.

A good solution IMO would be to divide the media-item div into columns of data (URL, ID, SIZE?) for the uploaded media

Here's a quick mockup of what I'm thinking (not a designer, so pardon the inconsistencies):
