Mobile Photo Taking, Whatever Next?  
I've finally made it into the 21st Century, I think - photo taken on my phone and emailed to myself so I could blog about it ... of course, if I wasn't such a cheapskate with my phone contract I'd probably've been able to upload it somewhere directly, rather than sending it as an email, but I'm not letting the phone know there's much of an internet out there to play with ;)

J at The Moorish Lounge, with his favourite cushion

And whilst this pic looks a little crappy quality, that's partly camera shake and partly coz I switched the flash off. It was big enough to edit the size down for the "large" version you'll get by clicking through, too! My, hasn't technology come on these days ;)

Took the pic at The Moorish Lounge, just before we had our lunch there on Thursday. J was really rather fond of the big gold cushions, the littler patchwork ones may've looked nicer (not in the pic sadly) but the gold ones were the comfiest :)

On Facebook you can send pictures to a personalised email address, which puts the pictures straight in an album called "Mobile Uploads" :-)

Taken from : http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=822
To see what your personalized upload email is, please take the following steps:

1. Go to your Publisher, located at the top of your Wall, and click the Photos button next to "Attach."
2. Select "Upload a Photo."
3. Click the "upload via email" link.

A dialog box will appear with your personalized upload email and further information about using this feature. Be sure to save your upload email address as a contact for easy access.

Thanks for that - I should set it up for future expeditions away from my computer! :) Mostly tho I don't think I want to send anything to facebook direct, I'd rather it ended up in my normal email account coz then it's easier to get it out & edit it etc.

Good point - the version that ends up on FB is obviously reduced down and you don't have access to the original picture. You could mail it home & FB if you wanted a quick upload but also your own copy :)

And you can email a pic straight to Flickr, and also add an extra bit to the email address which will automatically blog it on LJ:


And with the new (free) version of Ovi Maps on your N5800, you can upload a photo, a status update, and the GPS details of your current location:

Ahha, I should've figured flickr also had an upload email address, set that up now, too :) Thanks! So now I've multiple places to email my photos, but I probly still won't do it very often ;)
