Warning: technical post. Some may not find it of interest.
Yes, this is a picture of someone taking a picture of a cartoon. Don’t ask how many takes this took.
One of my aims in life (I haven’t set my sights that high) is to be able to post cartoons on this blog from anywhere. I am fortunate in having the technology that should enable such a feat to take place, but am continually blighted by technical problems and ineptitude. So any advice would be welcomed.
I have a mobile telephone and a tablet which can both ‘scan’ cartoons – ie take pictures and then turn them into reasonable black and white line drawings. The problem is getting the image onto this WordPress website. I use Flickr to store images, or I FTP them straight to the site, but have found the following problems:
- On an Android phone I can post to Flickr, but it isn’t as easy to edit the cartoon on the phone.
- On an iPad I can edit them scan very easily, but I can’t find any app that posts to Flickr and actually works. [Update: This might be a temporary problem - will try again soon.]
- No mobile apps seem to post to WordPress effectively.
- Ideally I want to have the image at 678 pixels, the width of my blog theme, but something like 640 is fine.
Can anyone think of a way that I can do this – perhaps a better method / app than I have been using.
