Trying out Windows Live Writer

I’m trying out a third-party blog post composition software called Windows Live Writer – I want to see how it does, whether it posts accurately, how the plug-ins work, like this sample photo attachment (my breakfast on a flight to Dallas).  IMG_0147

The options for word-wrapping and tilting the photo are interesting, but I want to see how they translate to the actual page.    I don’t like that they’re not using CSS to tilt, but instead recreating the image, so that it’s rectangular.  It doesn’t allow the text to tightly wrap around the image like I would expect or want.  Of course, beggars can’t be choosers, and this is a free tool. Interestingly, Windows Live Writer did not pick up the last blog post in my blog when it imported them.  Now that I’ve edited this post and re-published it, let’s see if those changes are implemented.
