The photo above was uploaded via a powerful plugin called PhotoPress 0.3. The plugin is soooo simple to use. Just download it from the link provided above, unzip into a temporary folder in your hard disk, then FTP to the appropriate folders in your wordpress installation. It adds two buttons to your quicktags, namely "upload" and "browse". A couple of clicks and it will write your code for you in the editbox. By default it centers the photo in the post. But you can override that by replacing the class="centered" to "alignleft" or "alignright" to get the effect you want. A few tweaks in the photopress-inc.php file also allows you NOT to use the photoalbum which will screw up your layout (it put mine so out of whack I disabled the album feature right away). It accepts only .jpg files and not .gif’s so you can’t upload any animated stuff this way. The developer is working on this, I think.
This is Donald, left aligned. Notice that the thumbnail defaults to 100 pixels in width, but you can change that in the photopress-inc.php file as well. A rather disorienting behavior in Firefox is the way it inserts code always at the end of the editbox, even if you put the cursor at the beginning of the post. The same thing happens in IE, so it’s not a browser thing. The most useful thing about it is that it saves you from writing code to insert photos into your WordPress blog. Aint life grand? 😀
