Suggestion: Picture adding (download from URL, upload to blog as from file...) RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Many times, i find some nice picture on web, and if i want to use it in my blog, i have two options...

    First is to link to it from my blog (which is hotlinking and is percived bad as it steals original hoster's bandwidth), and problem is that original hoster might remove it, and my picture dissapears as well...

    Second way is to download it to my computer first, and then use it in WLW, add picture "from file" and upload it to my blog.

    It would be so great, if WLW could automate this process.

    This could be simply done by adding another checkbox when adding picture "from web" ie (store locally and upload to blog).

    What do you think?

  • Thanks for the suggestion. In the meantime I'm sure a plugin could be developed for this... hmmm.
