I just used the upload feature to upload this photo of me, from the local paper's article on blogs. I'm wearing a suit because they sent the photographer by with about 15 minutes notice, right before I went to a law school dinner. I don't generally dress up for blogging. . . .
The photo-upload feature is much the same as Movable Type's. It's very easy. I don't use MT's photo-upload feature on my InstaPundit blog, though I've played with it a bit -- I upload using an FTP program. I'm not sure why. Habit, I guess.
TypePad supports post-via-email, but I haven't tried to figure it out yet. I've been doing this for about 10-15 minutes, which demonstrates how easy it is.
UPDATE: Went to look at the post-by-email instructions. Looks pretty easy.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader "Mac" comments: "How about a rule - for every pic of you, one of the Instawife!" Fair enough, I guess. This one was taken with the Toshiba using natural light, and just a bit of the Photoshop "fill flash" effect to lighten the shadows.
Hmm. You have to click the link to make this work. Every time I tried to upload the file using the TypePad utility, it took me to a new post, so I just cut and pasted the HTML it generated. But it's not showing a thumbnail here for some reason. Go figure. It's easy to use, but it's not foolproof, I guess.
Anybody got any suggestions on what I did wrong?
ANOTHER UPDATE: Followed the advice of a commenter, below, but it's a workaround. If you want to see the photo full-size, you'll still have to click on "view image."
