I'd certainly pay for an app that used RSS (or similar) to aggregate photographers' streams. Heck, I'd even exert pressure on my own favourite photographer to create a dedicated photo stream. I've kickstartered less promising pitches. h/t @chrisaldrich
I just backed Bokeh: Private, independent, and user-funded photo sharing on @Kickstarter
Still trying to work out why a photo that includes a hashtag (from Instagram) fails to show as a photo on micro.blog, while a photo without any hashtags shows up just fine.
Anyone have a clue?
I stopped sharing photo posts to micro.blog because they were being duplicated. Pretty sure now that's because the RSS contains the image twice, as part of the CDATA and again as an enclosure. Not sure whether to fix in @WithKnown or ask @help at micro.blog to ignore enclosure.
Updated to latest HEAD of WithKnown and hoping that might solve the multiple-photo problem. Better create a multiple photo post on Instagram, then.
Oh rats. I thought I could use Omnibear to post a photo, but it doesn't seem to do that.
Still puzzled by why some photo posts in Known go through to micro.blog with an image and others don’t. Almost all are PESOS from Instagram. I thought I had an explanation, but it doesn’t hold up.
Narrowing things down. I can post a photo to Known from my desktop with OS X.
I don’t expect it to show up on micro.blog because that gets a feed of selected categories only, and Photos isn’t one of them.
How about an image in a post?
