Skip the "Use this image" button step, and skip the "General settings" step. Just add the image in the content after upload is complete.

Removed "use image description as caption" as that is a matter for the parent bug.
I agree we shouldn't have the image metadata page, but currently the upload flow shows no preview. I didn't plan for that to stay the case though. If we show a thumbnail on the 2nd page we can definitely skip the image metadata page.
So I've marked this as blocked by T53032 but our case is slightly simpler because we're dealing with a new image so we know the description won't contain a bunch of templates and tables yet. I think we have an opportunity here to explain the difference between description and caption and make it simple for the user to fill them out (including the case where they are the same).
I agree completely. Lets try and tackle the image preview (F2797201) step first as it is more straight forward.
With T115860: Show image thumbnail in both steps of mw.ForeignStructuredUpload.BookletLayout resolved, should we remove the Use this image step?
I think we can use the description for the caption and maybe even alternate text. If we keep the text selected its easier for the user to completely change it too, if they so wish.

The field description is currently hidden behind the information icon. Are we ok with changing that?
Noting that the image description may be used as the caption during the upload process might be helpful too.
I like the direction that @Esanders is heading here in terms of providing simple and contextual support text. Is there are pattern for this happening elsewhere?
