Earlier i raised this question, and it's possible,
that message was considered as test message.
Thus i try to raise question once more.

When you fill server by pictures from browser, it will be reasonable,
that browser will display content of graphic file (attached to form)
instead of path and filename.

Let attached picture will displayed as octagon to differ it from usual picture, i.e.

  ----------------
 /                \
|                  |
|      There       | 
|        is        |
|      image       |
|                  | 
 \                /
  ----------------

And i offer to avoid programming on JS.
Let widget <input type=pic> will used (instead of <input type=file>) to avoid.


Let this widget will displayed as empty octagon before attaching, i.e.

  ----------------
 /                \
|                  | 
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  | 
 \                /
  ----------------

User press to empty octagon to attach picture:
when user press, browser show explorer for filesystem.

User press to "filled" octagon to change attached picture:
browser makes the same.
