Multiple uploaded pictures' thumbnails
When multiple pictures are uploaded, they should be uploaded in one message with small thumbnails, instead of being uploaded below each other in separate messages.
I agree with this a lot, one thing that I love about Messenger is how little space images take up, but on Discord as it currently stands this isn't the case.
I like this. Could even make it an option - so in text-based channels it does this so there's less screen real estate, but ones in an art channel post the current/classic way. Depends on needs.

Agreed! Do it. Its a AMAZING idea that I love
How about showing collections of images as horizontally scrollable galleries?
(Sorry for fantastic English) The ability to upload multiple photos at once and to display them as a gallery that you can scroll through. Now if you select to download multiple photos, they will be loaded one by one.
I need this feature so bad right now. Really limiting the bot I'm trying to make.
This would open some many possibilities to bot functions as well
This would certainly need a server-wide on/off option (or be entirely client-based), or this could cause potential hassle for users moderating channels. Example: A user could upload 5 images, but only 1 of them may be inappropriate for the specific server/channel, many server admins would still want the ability to remove just the 1 inappropriate image, or they'd have to delete all 5 at once (and that may not be ideal or what they want to do).

Or give us the option to choose one of the display modes :D I personally like to see them one by one but others might prefer to see thumbnails like OP.
When I drag n' drop a bulk of photos, after having to individually click to submit each one, I am then faced with having them all appear as large individual messages.
Facebook manages this by making them thumbnails and grouping them together in a grid as one message. Can we pretty please have something similar to this?
Also, when a photo has been selected and brought up for viewing, pressing Left/Right should cycle to the prior/next photo respectively (For the entirety of the photos sent in that channel, not just that one bulk uploaded message)
Bonus if you add a toggle-able scrolling frame in the right-side panel at the bottom gradually displaying all photos ever uploaded to that channel in a grid as you scroll.
Left/Right keyboard arrows should go to the previous/next photo when viewing.
