Micro.blog

@matpacker I've just added 4 images to my Love Waikawa Beach blog via the web interface and it was hard going. I uploaded the 4 images, grabbed the URLs, used an Applescript in BBEdit to code the images as I wanted and add Alt text, then switched to Chrome to create the post. I should have used ME but for various reasons didn’t.

@Miraz ouch, that is hard going!

I found that using the micro.blog app on Mac, I could drag a load of images into a new post and they would all go through together. No control over the layout, linking, etc. but better than nothing. I'm sure it will improve in the future, though.

@matpacker I might have done that, but I use the Mac app for this account. I don't think I can also use it for an entirely separate account (as opposed to a second blog off this account) so use Chrome for the other one.

@Miraz Ahh, ok. I think in one of the recent-ish mac app updates, you can add a second account and then choose where you're posting to. I've not tried it myself, I probably should so I can post to my Son's account more easily.

@matpacker OK, I've just done that. I didn't go ahead last time I tried because I had to sign out of the account I keep on a pinned tab in Safari and sign into the other. Now I've just done sign out, in, out and in again and it might be set up.

@matpacker @Miraz Sunlit should also be an option for multiple photos, if the images are/can arrive on an iOS device (aside from the multiple accounts issue, I think). Not too long ago, I believe Manton mentioned the future possibility of allowing us to edit the post template that Sunlit uses, too.

@smokey ahh forgot the Sunlit option! Thanks!
