Photo Blogging

I’m playing with the ability to post pictures quickly and semi-automatically — not all pictures I take, just ones I select. Photos posted this way will appear in snapshot gallery entries named “Photo Blog mm/dd“.

Vertical pictures are currently being presented on their side.  Other than that, the current collection of hacks seems to be hanging together a little bit.

We’ll see.

The underlying tech: the cheapest Eye-Fi card, home, hotel (Fourth Street) or Sprint Overdrive Wi-fi, ftp upload to a special user under my Dreamhost account, a cron job to pick the photos up and post them to the snapshot album.

Other than bug fixes, planned changes include: RSS feed, latest photo thumbnail in main blog sidebar, possibly creating a blog entry when a photo blog entry is created (but not updated), web access to set photo caption and description (or delete some).
