posting photos

I cannot insert photos. Am I missing something? I've checked everywhere for a possible answer so I'm punting and putting it out for the rest of you.

There's not enough information in your post to really troubleshoot your specific case.

But the basics are that the photos have to reside somewhere on a webserver and then you use an <img src> tag to embed them into your entry.

lol. I closely monitor this community for new versions because I can't wait to switch to iJournal from xJournal since it's been abandoned. It just takes several eternities to open because of my user pictures. I really wish it wouldn't.

ewf... I've got a version I haven't checked in, but I'm waiting for it to be able to build on xcode3, which I probably shouldn't do since Leopard isn't out for a few more months (I was waiting because I had -hoped- it would be out for WWDC... what a slacker I am.).

Will the new version automate uploading to ScrapBook galleries of images dragged and dropped into the entry?

I haven't looked at the scrapbook protocol yet, but that is my intention unless someone else beats me to it and submits code (or a patch).

Does anyone have a library to wrap the protocol yet? Moving the gritty details of the protocol into some external component might make it easier to integrate later and unit test. I didn't even know that LJ offered such a service (let alone a protocol to interact with it) so I guess that shows how out of touch I have been.

I don't think there's a framework, but I saw a java thing somewhere and the perl examples. I agree with compartmentalizing this, so that it doesn't get any uglier in the source tree. Fraser has an iPhoto plugin, but I don't think the source is available/open(?).

Ah. I didn't know I didn't know so much. I'm talking about simply adding an image to a post. Most of the photos I insert reside on my hard drive. Since there is no "insert" option on iJournal, I've tried the Mac drag and drop thing which puts the pic on the iJournal page but the image does not load in LJ. It reads as a blank or with a strange little glyph.

Unless you've got a webserver on your computer, you need to upload them somewhere so others can see what you're embedding.

So I have to upload the pic somewhere else (flickr, photobucket, etc) and then link to it? Is that right?

Right now I'm using iJournal to get the text formatting options, uploading the post, then going over to LJ to edit the post so I can insert the pics directly from my hardrive.

I'm not sure one method is more of a pain than the other. Any chance this option might be added to future versions of iJournal?

LiveJournal has a photo hosting service called ScrapBook that works pretty well.

The only LJ client that automatically handles uploading and linking images that you drag and drop into entries is Semagic. I don't know why none of the Mac clients can handle uploading to ScrapBook. :(

You mean the <img src="http://someurl/someimage.jpg"> thing? or do you mean trying to upload to livejournal's scrapbook and show the link thing? or something else?
