I'm quite new to LogJam, haven't found options for uploading pictures to livejournal from PC. How can I do it? And if LogJam cannot upload images, is there any client that can?|
Thanks in advance.
Sorry, that's just not the LJ client's job. I'm not aware of one that has the functionality built in.
can do it easily, but it's for Windows. I'm new to Linux, too, and looking for a similar client. How do you upload images, if not with the help of the client?
Didn't know it could do that. I tried Semagic once. It was ... an interesting experience. I abandoned Semagic after about two weeks of use, after it hopelessly corrupted one of my posts (it garbled it so badly it was almost easier to rewrite it from scratch than to try to repair the re-ordered paragraphs and mangled HTML).
Um. To answer the upload question, well, I don't actually use LJ's picture hosting — I tried it once and found it unreliable for my journal style chrome. But LJ Scrapbook clients exist, and in a pinch the web interface to Scrapbook, although clumsy, works.
(I'll freely agree it could be better designed. I found it complex, obscure and confusing.)
I have used Semagic in Windows for almost two years, it never corrupted anything.
And more about images. You simply drag-and-drop your image into the post draft in Semagic — and you get it, the picture will be uploaded and inserted into the post when you click Send.
I'm surprised I can't find anything similar for linux O_o

What kind of pictures? I don't know of any client that can upload userpics, but there are a few Scrapbook clients
I mean uploading photos and other images into posts. Is there any Linux tool both to write posts and upload images?
You don't upload an image into a post. You upload it to online storage space, and then use IMG tags to make it appear in your post. If you don't have other storage space, you can use the LJ scrapbook
Yes, I know that I upload images to some storage space. Maybe just couldn't make it clear, English is not my native language :)
I mean, in Semagic I use to browse for an image on my PC, select it, specify aligning and some other options, and the local path is inserted into my post draft. When I send this post, the image is automatically uploaded to Scrapbook (and the path is changed to URL). So I don't need to upload this pic before writing my post in order to insert its address into img tags.
If English isn't your native language, your English is excellent!
That's very useful! I didn't know Semagic would do that. The other comments have linked you to everything I can think of; I hope they help!
Thanks :) I'm Russian, actually.
I hope the answers will help. I'll try image uploading clients. Thanks to everybody who replied!
If you're talking about uploading to LJ's scrapbook, then you can use one of the clients
available from the download page.
If you want to upload to another site (e.g. flickr, etc...) then you'd need to go there and see what clients they have available.
