My first reaction was "What image??" then my tired old eyes found the 
near invisible "preview" label. It would have to be a lot more 
pronounced for me to see it easily. Differences in screen brightness, 
contrast, and gamma settings may make an image this light effectively

The "popup" preview that Hans has created makes this less likely 
because you can still see the edit form behind the preview. I think 
the original problem was users scrolling down to the bottom of the 
preview where the edit form is no longer visible and forgetting that 
they were not on the real page.

However, someone determined to lose their edits will find a way no 
matter what the admin does.  ;-)

I just want to make it harder to do.
