I have written a plugin for uploading and embeding images easily in posts. Photos are zipped up, upload, thumbnails and links are placed in the posts easily.
Go to my plugin page
This is an example, (and walkthru)
Out of frustration for an easy and quick way to insert and display pictures in posts (without crudely hacking Exhibit or PhotoPress plugin).
Out of some influence by userfriendness/competition shown in PhotoMail(yahoo), MSN Spaces(microsoft), Hello to Blogger(google) on how you could share ur photos easily.
Out of some inspiration by some gallery plugins - Exhibit, PhotoPress.
This plugin is not created for setting up a gallery. It comes from my need for inserting photos into my post quickly and simply in the least amount of steps.
In short, PhotoZip is a quick and dirty method for uploading images into my post.
Love to hear comments.
