New Windows Live Writer Plugin

I finally finish developing the first version of a windows live writer plugin which I ended up calling “Sharper Photo” with the idea is that the plugin will help you modify you post photos to make them sharper (better).

It took me a while to get the pluging finished because I needed to create an installer package (.msi) but since I was using c# express i was out of luck so i had to learn a little bit of WIX and with the help of the SharpDevelop .NET editor I was able to use the WIX tools to create the installer for the pluging. I submitted the plug-in to the Windows Live Gallery and now I am waiting for approval, hope it gets approved soon so it can be available soon.

Hey Jose - I downloaded Sharper Photo and am dying to try it out, but can't figure out how to edit a photo. I've got a photo in my Live Writer post, but when I click on it, the Sharper Photo stuff isn't available to click on to edit. And when I just click on Sharper Photo (in Live Writer), it just says "No image found." Help! I'd love to try this, because I'm constantly looking for better ways to edit photos within Live Writer, without going to another editing program. Specifically, to reduce the size of large photos without going to a program like Picnik or PhotoShop. Thanks!

Thanks for letting me know, I think my pluging does not work with the latest version of live writer, however its a very easy fix, and I'll be posting the fixed version of the plugin very soon, I'll put it on my site first and then I'll see if I can put it up on gallery, do you still need the plugin?
