Uploading multiple pictures in linked state

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
When dragging and dropping in multiple pictures at once into the opened document they all appear by default as full images (embedded), which is not the desired state. I then have to click each of them and set the appearance to “Link”, because I need them to take less space.

Describe the solution you’d like
I would like to be asked what would I like to do with multiple pictures being uploaded into the document. I imagine the best way would be to show a prompt after dropping in the pictures.

For example: select multiple pictures > drag over the document > release LMB > a prompt appears > select “Display as links” > upload all the pictures with the appearance of a link

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
It is possible to select multiple images and then changing their appearance, but selecting them is not that easy.

There are, as always, different preferred actions.

As you said, a prompt could help the user to get the desired action.
Though I would prefer a “default” setting in the settings. Because I think, the most users, are using the same method most of the time
