Topic tags/keywords: question

I would like to post a blog about a project .. complete with text and photos .. and have it done in MS Word and in a PDF document. Is there a way to simply copy and paste to the blog .. complete with text and photos? I have tried and it only brings over the text. Hate to have to load each and every photo and then place where needed in the text. Any helpers out there?

I’m the resident complainer about the image interface. I’m not sure how that could be achieved outside of linking it somewhere else. Good luck, though.

LJ does not have a blogging interface other than the web interface. text CAN be copy pasted, but images have to be either manually uploaded, or if you have them hosted elsewhere you can copy paste the links to them.

It’s a pain, Horky, but it’s all we’ve got. Just post some pics! You can complain about it while you do it. That’s what I do;)

There are online services that will allow you to convert your PDF to an Image, which you should be able to post that way. I have used them before for work. Cannot remember the names, but google convert PDF to image, .jpg, etc.
