Warning: I’m not completely ignorant to the ways of the interwebs, but I’m not fluent in tech talk.
I’m hoping to find a quick solution for blogging images I find online. My website is dedicated to savings… couponing, freebies, samples, local businesses, daily deal sites, etc. This requires LOTS of individual posts every day, spread across multiple categories and even separate blogs under separate subdomains. So if I find a coupon for a restaurant, I’ll need to store an image on my hosting (so as to not “hotlink” or whatever it’s called), then make a new blog post and stick the image in it. You can imagine how time consuming it’d be to do this 10-20+ times per day.
Firefox has a thing where you can right click an image and click “Add to PicasaWeb”. I’ve been using this and it eliminates the process of saving the image to my computer and then loading it. But this has its drawbacks- 1) it’s not on my hosting (I don’t think I need to explain why this isn’t good); 2) the image url doesn’t include my domain and all that jazz (I want the image location to be mysite(dot)com/images/blahblah/storelogo(dot)jpg
Is there anything - either through dreamhost or elsewhere - that would make storing images on my hosting any quicker? Something that would allow me to right click and load it somehow? Or save a copy of it using the original image’s location?
The ideal product I’m looking for would work like the Firefox/picasaweb right click add-on except save the image to a specified location/folder on my hosting. Are there sites similar to picasaweb that allow you to save images to your own host while using their system to access/manage it? They’re much more user friendly and easier to navigate.
PS- feel free to tell me the proper ways to convey what I’m trying to say…for my future reference.
