I’m testing my proposed workflow for photo processing and blog posting via my new iPad so let’s see if this works. My idea is to be able to travel light – no laptop, minimal glass – during our summer trip this year but I’m having a few problems. Here are the tools I was planning to use:
So far, I’ve hit quite a few snags:
For the time being, I’ve configured Filterstorm to allow me to export images via FTP to a known directory on the photoblog server and, from there, I can get them into posts by manually entering the URL to the image. That’s what I’ve done here and we’ll see if it works. My worry here is that, because I’m completely bypassing the PhotoQ plug-in I use to show the main image on the page, these posts will be horribly ill-formatted. Time to press “Preview” and find out…
(Later) After a lot of hacking around, I think I’ve figured out how to do this so I should be OK to post while I’m away on vacation this summer. Now, I wonder if the thumbnails are messed up?
(Later still) Yes, the thumbnail for the post is completely absent. Since the text link is still there, though, I can live with this for the small number of posts I’ll be doing from the road. Looking back 3 years, I wish I hadn’t chosen this gallery management plug-in since it’s now apparently completely unsupported (and I’m no PHP expert).
