I agree, it doesn't matter how a picture got into WP, other than whether or not it was added through the builtin media management system, and it was, and that the pictures are stored in the default WP locations, and they are.
The only thing I'm trying to figure out how to do via ATA is to format the default attachment page, which most people seem not to know about, but it still affects ATA whether one knows about it or not.
That said, in order to try and clarify, here's the steps that it takes to arrive at creating/using one of those default attachment pages for yourself:
1) I edit the post using the HTML editor
2) I put my cursor where I want the post to go
3) I click the 'add an Image' icon that is just above the post area
That opens a new window 'add an Image'
4) I click the 'Select File' button
5) I choose the file and upload it
6) I now go to the 'Link URL' area, if you look underneath it, you'll see three buttons, and the third one says "Post URL". If you click this button, it will insert the path to the attachment page in the Link URL text box.
7) I now go to the 'Alignment' area of the new window and select my alignment
8) I now go to the 'Size' area of the new window and select my size
9) then click the 'Insert into Post' button
10) I click on 'Update' to publish the changes
11) I click on 'View Page' to view the published changes
12) I click on the newly placed image
13) We should now be on the "attachment" page
a.) If you were to click on 'edit post', you would see a default "media" properties editing form.
b.) The only simple changes I want to make to this page are to unlink the picture, so that it does not, from this point, link to the "naked" image, set the image to float:left, and maybe also give it a little margin on the right and bottom so that text isn't too close to it.
