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).
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.
