Another photo from the 2004 trip to Britain. I have to remember, until I figure out how to get the text to flow properly on photos posted from Flickr, that I need to write enough text to clear the bottom of the image, or the problem posed by having a floated image within a floated center column will keep screwing things up. I keep fiddling with the customized CSS at Flickr; images blogged from Flickr look great over at the Blogspot photoblog, but they’re are handled differently there (no CSS drop shadow) and the layout is a simpler 2 column one. Picasa/Hello, another photoblogging tool, had some clearing divs in their markup that I tried over at Flickr, which looks fine on Razzberry but like hammered poo on Blogula.
There, is that enough text to wrap around the image? If not, I can blather on about using both Flickr and Picasa/Hello. One is by Yahoo and the other is by Google. One is used to build communities around photos, and the other one is more person-to-person, while both have decent “send to blog” tools. Both are easy to use, in totally different ways. Both have organizer capabilities. Picasa’s raaawks, because as soon as you load a flash card full of images, Picasa detects them and loads them up in a way that makes it really, really easy to flip through them, cull the crap, put them in a folder, rename them in a batch, and even add some effects. The only thing I can’t seem to figure out how to do is resizing, because that happens “automatically” if the image is sent to a Blogspot blog. I seem to have to fire up Photoshop Elements to do a little custom resizing if I want to put an image up on MT.
Anyway. Photos. There you have it.
