Nokia N95 + Blogger + Post Pictures

Got a mobile phone, + Wifi or 3G; but how to post images to Blogger. In the end it turned out to be quite simple but it still took a week to find the best way to get my mobile pictures to blogger.

The first method I tried was Shozu. Even thou, its one of best mobile software I found for posting to various ervices together, it didn't really solve my posting problems. I configured blogger but when it posted pictures, it also posted a tiny shozu logo image along with it - which sucks and also the image didn't scale properly, too small. Mebbe there are some settings to solve these 2 issues but I couldn't get it working. Hence shozu was out.

The second method was to use Lifeblog service provided by Nokia. Worse part, it has no settings to post to Totally useless you might think. There is a work around for it, link: post to blogger, basically you use the flickr settings for lifeblog and configure your blog in flickr and post directly to your blog and flickr also. The reason it turned useless for me was it was also posting the image to flickr and I didn't wanted to post camera images on flickr all the time. If you don't mind that, its pretty good.

Then I tried using Blogger Mobile, it looked good but somehow I couldn't get it working for me. Mebbe becoz of proxy, not sure!!

Finally, I configured my email account on the phone for emails. And setup Mail-to-Blogger under Settings -> Email and you can make a private email account and just send the pictures taken from phone to the specified email address with 'Title of post' in the 'Subject line' and if you wanna add info, just write like an email. Hit send and its done. And it also scales the image in decent size.
