This is the first in a series of screencasts and video clips demonstrating how to capture and upload digital content to Lumberjocks. The ultimate goal is to add to your skill set and your ability to enhance your LJ Projects, Blog entries and Forum topics. The first episode focuses on uploading photos to photo hosting site, in this case Photobucket, and subsequently posting the photos to a LJ forum entry. I will be correcting some broken photo links for my forum entry on the Kreg Miter Gauge.
I got right to business after reading the current isssue of Lumberjocks Comic. Even though the price is a bit steep it is a great value . . . although 10 of these is a new plane . . . tough choices! Great job John!

Why am I doing this series? Other than an interest in photography and videography, I do not claim to be an expert. This is a series that will give you a look into my digital workflow when posting content on Lumberjocks or my own website.
Since joining Lumberjocks I have posted a number of short video clips, including a collaborative video effort with a good cyber friend, Tom (aka Mot the Grand Festoolian Lumberjock Super-Hero). At the urging of Wayne, another cyber-buddy, I was encouraged to make a podcast of my Lumberjock video clips. Now I have Wayne to thank every time I am caught in the shop by myself talking to a video camera . . . I am sure he is chuckling at this very moment somewhere in cyberspace!
Of course I do have an ulterior motive here as I very much enjoy the rich digital content on Lumberjocks. I get a kick out of looking into everyone’s shop and seeing different ways of doing things. I just want more photos and more videos!
Here is what you can expect from the series. The basic layout will be Lumberjock text blog entry with a screencast / video clip for each episode and a PDF download with episode notes, resources & links, my tips, and what I call ProTips. I took the liberty of contacting some podcast type folks that we all enjoy and asked what they would pass on to us novices . . . I am not going to tell you their names as that is the subject of our Digital Pre-Test! So take the test and join me nest time for another episode of The Digital Lumberjock.
