MarsEdit 2 Supports Flickr!

July 23rd, 2007

Last week I gave a sneak peek of the post editor window in MarsEdit 2.

This week it’s on to the new “Media Manager” window, which replaces “Images & Files” from MarsEdit 1.2. You might notice a new tab…

Browse through all your Flickr photos, or filter by matching tags or image name. With keyboard shortcuts, you can bring up the window and insert a photo link without ever touching the mouse.

    Very awesome feature! Thanks and looking forward to 2.0!

    (wow, I just realized I’m a MarsEdit fanboy…)

  2. Buzz Andersen Says:

    Super slick!

  3. Scott McNulty Says:

    That’s what I’m talking about.. well that’s what you’re talking about but you know what I mean.

    I can’t wait to get my bloggerly hands on MarsEdit 2!

    I love this app! Thanks for all the teases.

  5. EDIT-XTREEM Says:

    Looks great! I really cant wait!

  6. Julian Cheal Says:

    Oooh, that looks good! Can’t wait now for MarsEdit 2. And at your current price, and with the exchange rate what it is it only works out at £12.12 ($24.95)

    What a bargin!

    I love the idea! Unfortunately, it won’t quite work for me. Let me explain my goals and workflow, which may be odd enough that they’re not worth supporting, but that’s up to you.

    I love the frames that galerie wraps around pictures. I think they make pictures look better by adding separation between the photo and the text. (See examples at my blog, Emergent Chaos.

    The way I do this is I get images from Flickr, frame them in galerie, and upload them with Marsedit. (Galerie’s author was kind enough to add a ‘save image’ to the preview window to make this process faster.)

    So it would be awesome if Marsedit could support some sort of pluggable transform function around images.


  8. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Adam: I hope to move MarsEdit in the direction of being able to manipulate images in some future release. It’s a good idea.

  9. Mike Says:

    Very nice!

  10. Steve Says:

    You can please make it a one step procedure to insert photos into a blog post, rather than first uploading, then inserting.

    This would be my number one feature request!


  11. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Steve: request noted. I will put that on my list of things to consider after 2.0.

  12. Jeff Johnston Says:

    Wow! I was gonna ask for that, but never got around to…

    This rules.

  13. Chris Karr Says:

    I’m eagerly looking forward to throwing away Flickr Uploadr. Thanks for the great work!

  14. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Chris: I’m glad you’re excited about the Flickr support, but I should add that for the moment it will be for browsing/linking only. I hope to add Flickr Uploading support in a later release.

  15. Alastair Rankine Says:

    Hi Daniel, the media manager looks good.

    Just a request: can the markup be customised? For example, instead of outputting an img tag, I might want it to produce a macro. Mephisto supports flickr macros as described here.

  16. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Alastair: that particular feature is high on my list of things to work on after 2.0 ships. So it won’t be in 2.0 but hopefully soon after.

  17. fallenrogue Says:

    I want it now!

  18. Mathias Says:

    Woooohooo! Nice work, Daniel/

  19. Peter Says:

    MarsEdit2 looks really good!!! I like the “without ever touching the mouse” announcement!

    But i hope you will never “move MarsEdit in the direction of being able to manipulate images” that smells bloatware ;)

    Can you give a hint about release-date?

  20. alenm88 Says:

    I add a comente in the Sneak post but you havent answerd.

    what about two views? one HTML and one Visual.

    Like Qumana or Ecto. I love Mars Edit but something i am tired of ,is to have to write all the HTML.

    Besides a i am the owner of a mac website and i always recommend your software.


  21. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    alenm88: It’s definitely something I want to do, but I am very careful not to do it until I am sure I can do it extremely well. The reason is that nothing is more frustrating than a “visual” view that is only 80% or even 90% right.

    I will be looking into doing direct “WYSIWYG” editing for a release after 2.0.

  22. Ben Yates Says:

    Looks awesome. Will 2.0 be a free upgrade? Probably not. I’ll end up buying it regardless, but hey.

  23. Daniel Jalkut Says:

    Ben: It won’t be a free update but it will be a very affordable upgrade price all registered MarsEdit users.
