I dearly love the free Photo Dropper plugin for WordPress. Although I compose almost all my blog posts offline in MarsEdit, I often use a temporary post on a different WordPress blog just so I can use Photo Dropper to readily find Creative Commons Flickr images. Photo Dropper provides resized as well as properly attributed HTML code I can copy into my posts. This is an example of a Photo Dropper formatted CC image:
I would LOVE to have access to Photo Dropper blog posting functionality natively within MarsEdit, or as a lightweight freeware application running on my Mac. Does anyone know of a client-side program which offers functionality similar to Photo Dropper? This would not only be handy for blogging, but also for creating photo-intensive multimedia presentations in PowerPoint or Keynote. As it stands now, I end up using the Flickr Creative Commons Attribution-Only search site and copying/pasting from my web browser into my presentation software repeatedly to capture the image as well as source URL for each slide which needs an image. It would be great if a software program could streamline this process, as Photo Dropper does for blog posts written within the WordPress web environment.
