From the parent task: What are the vectors for how multimedia content gets added to Wikipedia articles? Is it Visual Editor, direct Wikitext editing, or bots? We have dashboards for this information for edits in general but it's not granular enough for us to distinguish multimedia additions.
We'd also like to explore whether we can differentiate media that was uploaded as part of the edit versus media that is searched for via image search in VE. See @nettrom_WMF's comment in T266067#6634887:
There's an open question about whether we should differentiate between uploads and adding media. I think that depends on how uploads are logged by MediaWiki. If a user uploads two files through VE and adds them into an article, does that show up as two file uploads and one edit in the system? Are those uploads tagged in a way that makes them easy to separate from uploads outside of VE? Depending on how easy they are to identify, we might not need to do something specific about them.
