So far implementing my new site in Drupal is going well. Each time I think Drupal is too restrictive I find that I just didn't know how to use it. So far I'm using the following core modules and contrib modules:

contact
help
image
image_gallery
img_assist
menu
page
path
profile
search
story
taxonomy
tracker
upload
views
views_rss
views_theme_wizard
views_ui

I'm runinng Drupal 4.7.3 so it's hard to tell what's core and what's not. I know I downloaded and installed the following contrib modules:
image
img_assist
views

Very impressed with img_assist and the flexibility to use it with all different input formats. I had trouble at first because I'm using Full HTML input format for several key pages. At first, images uploaded using img_assist would display only with input format Filtered HTML. Finally I took the time to search drupal.org which solved my problem.

You have to manage the input formats too.
Go to
administer - input formats
To see img_assist images in Full HTML, click configure to the right of the Full HTML in the list of input formats.
Check the box Inline images in the Filters section et voila! Pics and Full HTML.
