TypePad does photo upload right
I really like how the 6A team behind TypePad has simplified the process of adding an image to a blog post.
In the simplest form, you just pick a file to upload, and hit “Insert Image”, and after uploading the file to the server, a thumbnail is generated server-side, and the proper HTML is inserted to display the image and have a window pop-up to show the full picture when you click the image.
The advanced options include choosing thumbnail width and choosing the align attribute.
I like it when a good interaction design manages to simplify a process such as this to a really simple form which makes you go “Of coures! That’s how to do it!” Good work, folks.
