Posterous has some wicked cool image handling capabilities. Just attach an image to your email to the service and it will get embedded in your post at the top of the content (example). Attach several images and Posterous builds a sweetly simplistic gallery for you at the bottom of your post (example).
- Login, via the web interface, find your post in question and click edit.
- Once on the edit page, you’ll notice the advanced editor menu is available, click the far right blue “html” button.
- Inside the html code you will see something that looks like this: [[posterous-content:Y22oPHKFX11e6BY4miL5]]. That is the Posterous object code calling your image.
NOTE: an image gallery will also use a single object code as well, more about that that below.
- Now you can cut and paste that code where ever you want it to appear in the post.
UPDATE: Roj commented below that you can include ((nogallery)) in the subject line of your email. This will cause Posterious to generate individual image tags for multiple images attached.
- Email you post copy first.
- Upload your images to your own server, a CDN, or a service like Flikr.
- Login to Posterous and edit the post html. Adding <img src=”http://my-img-url-here” style=”float:right;margin:1em;” /> for each image you want to include. Place the image tag where ever you need the image.positioned in the post.
