    Before I go reinventing the wheel, has anyone gotten to this point:

    * Take a picture. After clicking "Keep", the picture is automatically uploaded to a web server OF YOUR CHOOSING.


    Thanks,

    Closest I've seen is
    http://www.mobog.com

    with the following:

    http://www.mobog.com/syndicate.cfm

    which allows you to display the last picture taken in a script that works just like an <img>...

    You have to 'share' to pics@mobog.com --but if you register, it'll know who you are, and you can log in and change picture attributes, and display the last image taken on a web page.

    I know, I know, not too automatic.

    For instance :

    <script src=http://www.mobog.com/syn.cfm?username=yespinky> </script>

    Nets you: http://www.yespinky.com/fish.jpg (only an example, not actually the latest for TC reasons)...

    Oh, and it brands the image with mobog.com

    If you're talking moblogging and such ... On YOUR website you would need to have Movable Type installed.

    Then you can use mfop2 (search Google) and it's easy. I use it every so often.

    another vote for installing movable type and using mfop2. Movable Type version 3 is in alpha or beta right now, and they say there will be more support for this kind of thing..

    There is no way to upload the picture just by saving it. You'll always need to go through an intermediate step of emailing it or uploading it somewhere.

    Supposedly, the next version of MovableType will have features for mobile users, so hopefully they'll have some sort of way to import emails or have some kind of mobile version of their page that allows uploading...

    I use MT, but not with MFOP2. Someone else here (I want to say metsfan, but not sure) had written up some Perl scripts to be called by procmail or another mail processor that takes a JPEG attachment and saves it as a file, then takes the message body and creates an entry, using the MT entry number as the image filename. Some creative templating, and voila, you've got a blog entry with a photo!

    I pursued this route because I don't want to have to depend on a service provided by a third party, when my site is fully capable of doing it by itself. Ya never know when a third party is going to disappear, not to mention that I don't then have my web site login info sitting on someone else's server.

    I do this with WordPress and a simple script that I modified to work with the T600. It does require sending an email so it's not exactly what you are looking for, but I don't think there are any shoot2blog in one step tools out there.

    You can see it in action at my WordPress Blog

    Am I missing the obvious here?

    How about taking the photo and saving it to the sd card so it's a JPG, then use one of the palm FTP proggies to send it to the server of your choice?

    I have actually done this long way around, I have used Snappermail to send a photo to myself, used Mocha Telnet to log into my server and used Pine to read the email and detach the photo.

    Lots of obvious ways to do this unless I am missing something...

    mk3cn4 uses a Treo 600 with ReqWireless Web Browser (others are useless IMO), Snappermail, Xiino, PalmVNC... and is a big infone fan. Cheaper and magnatudes better than Sprint's 411 ripoff, www.infone.com.

    FTP is the straight way to go... Or Buzznet gives you script to add to your webpage...

    I snap, attach to email and send to my buzznet page, and simultaneously the photo is posted to my website via a bit of code that Buzznet provides...

    Here's what I'm thinking: Is it possible to hack the Pictures program, so when you click on the third button (with the globe on it), instead of uploading to SprintPCS's servers, it'll upload it to your server? I don't want to have to go through all the hassle of:

    1) Take picture
    2) Save to SD card
    3) Email the picture to myself (sheesh! You would at least pay the speed penalty of mime-encoding)
    4) The rest could be automated with a procmail script (keying off a certain subject, for example)

    I'd rather:
    1) Take picture
    2) Click globe icon
    3) There is no step 3!


    Thanks,

    Yup, it was me. The scripts can be found at: http://www.geekandproud.net/stuff/photoblog/

    They have hardcoded author IDs, blog IDs, and pathnames that you'll have to change if you want to use them. If anyone else tries them, let me know if there are any problems.

    Do you mean custom software on the palm which will allow you to post to a website directly? If that's the case, I don't believe so. I haven't seen any PalmOS applications which integration with the Treo 600 camera that offers this functionality. I've done an exhaustive search, but haven't really come across anything. I would definitely like to see it though, as having to send via email gets annoying after a while. A simple http post would work wonders...

    ... so I started looking around with Filez, and the only thing I could find was the ImageLibrary in ROM. Here's what I found:

    RAM ImageLib_image: Where the images are stored
    RAM ImageLib_mainD: Information about the images (filenames, etc.)
    ROM ImageLibrary: The actual Picture program(?)
    ROM ImageLibrary_e: Contains default categories / "Card"

    I've looked through all of the above, and never found something like "http://pictures.sprintpcs.com" (which is what I'd like to change to my server).

    Any ideas?


    Thanks,

    Hi,
    I am looking for something that will make uploading pics to TextAmerica faster. It takes way too many steps to send a pic after taking it. I saw this thread which was similar and wondered if anything was out there that makes this process faster?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I use an FTP program on my phone and upload to my webcam image so i can update it ever hour or so.
    Only problem is that the FTP takes about 3 min to upload a picture >< not sure why so long.

    I read somewhere in the Treo Ace hype that it will finally add this functionality. It would be great if someone could add this to the Treo 600.

    I too, just wrote some perl scripts that are associated to an email address. It strips the email of the files and puts the files on the web server for the world to enjoy.

    Emailing is as close to "automatic" as you can get. Second choice is ftp.

    Mark, use Snapper ail to get photos quicker to text america. With it, text america will use your Re line on the snapper email as the title, and the text of the email as the text on the website. Much quicker than using the email app installed with the phone, at least with my sprint phone.
