This Should Be Fun

So as I’ve decided to move away from Flickr I though I’d better test if writing my blog posts in this new regime was actually going to work. I’ve always used Windows Live Writer for writing my posts, for once Microsoft have created a tool that actually works, even if they don’t support it anymore. So like I said “this should be fun”

My main objective in this post is to see if I can WLW to embed the photographs, that will be uploaded to the WordPress servers instead of Flickr. So here goes.

First up is a photograph I took in Germany whilst travelling on the River Rhine.

Now for another one, this is all about getting those photographs on, so not much talking today. This time we are on a canal in Amsterdam, Actually I’m standing on a bridge above the canal, but you get the idea.

Let’s try a night scene this time from Koblenz in Germany

Finally another one back on the river

I’m not sure, there’s a lot more work involved doing it this way, well not that much but it does seem slower. Also I have to cut the file size down, otherwise I would soon use up the measly 3Gb allowance that WordPress give us for hosting our photographs, so it will be interesting to see what the quality is like. That’s if they even get to the WordPress server.

Right then, here we go, I’m pressing that “Post Draft To Blog” button to send everything from my computer to WordPress. See you on the other side……

I’m on the other side, using the on-line editor from WordPress. Looks like the photographs transferred successfully. So time to go Publish and see what the final quality looks like.
