Just when things were starting to go so well, flickr has changed its embedding options so I can’t copy and paste my own photos onto this blog any more. I should be able to post one photo per post through the flickr/WP thing, but one Miao Photo is hardly adequate for most Miao Posts. Months ago, I had left flickr because I found the new set-up to be obnoxious, but in an effort to start posting again I went back. 500px is good but embedding photos is inconvenient because you have to specify the dimensions in the code for each photo (flickr did that automatically) and some of my photos have different proportions so there isn’t a one-size-fits-all number. It’s hard enough to find time to post and turning each photo into a math problem isn’t my idea of fun. And now with flickr’s new change, which appears to have started just this morning, 500px with all its inconvenience is better.
Even though I linked my blog to my flickr account, the sharing to WP option doesn’t even work.
I could just upload photos to WordPress, but alas, I don’t have enough space.
So I am quite frustrated and even though I have Miao photos to post, I have been wasting so much time trying to post and failing that I am quite grumpy and discouraged.
