I was looking at doing some blogging. Do I have to post my photos to an online site to be able to install them into the blog? Or can I pull them out of my iphoto application on my mac?

I have to upload my pictures to my website, so it has a link to go to, besides that it’s pumped me up to page 1 on a google search for The Cabinet Shoppe and Ye Olde Cabinet Shoppe

The photos need to be hosted online somewhere… I copy out of iPhoto into my space with my .Mac acct. If you have a .mac acct, you have 1GB of online storage space already. and if you save your jpegs down to web resolution, you’ll probably never run out of space. Several others host there pictures in the lumberjocks Flickr group. There’s also photobucket (my wife uses that one, doesn’t ask for as much personal information as Flickr when you register. If you link to a pic on your harddrive only you will be able to see it (unless you open your computer for the whole world to see, which, of course you shouldn’t do.

I upload at Allyoucanupload.com Then I copy, & paste from there. It took me awhile to do it right though.

If you have a yahoo account then you have a geocities account and you can load them up there.

Todd, I’ve been using ImageShack for years. They provide a good service at no charge.

Good question, Todd. I recommend using Imageshack or Photobucket because they are very easy to use as the 3rd party picture hosting service.

We’re working with Ethan on the formatting How-tos.. right now we’re close to finish the work on the initial one and I believe it will be great guide that will teach all LJs how to format their posts properly. Other two will focus specifically on inserting pictures and videos using 3rd party services.. I will even make some changes in the code to make it even more easier. Stay tuned ;)

I use Picassa and you can choose whether albums are public or not.

More thanks. I was wanting to blog the Festool Domino, I got to use it a few days ago but I have to jump through too many hoops at the moment to make it timely.

ooooooooh the Domino.
I’ve never done any kind of joints like this (just simple box joints, whatever they are called) but when I saw the Domino (WoodWhisperer’s podcast) it went right on my “yup,, gotta have one of these” list.

I’d love to hear more about it.

Woodspar, no, you can upload six directly to lumberjocks. Just like with the projects.

However, If you want to add more photos within the text portion, then yes. Those would be the same as in a regular blog.
