We know it's not ideal, as is. We're currently stuck between an
orphaned preview image and a hard-to-use interface.
Future (large) changes will allow improving the UX without leaving
orphaned previews. The idea of allowing orphaned previews to improve UX
here has been mentioned.
Overall, the most I can say is that it will be improved, eventually.
