Please accept my apologies for the late reply.
After further investigation of your requirement I found that it is not possible to apply a loading animation after clicking the Upload button in the ImageManager. However there is another solution. Instead of using the ImageManager - you can use an external RadAsyncUpload over the RadEditor as shown in this demo
