I’m testing out the WordPress Android app to see how easy it is to upload photos from my phone.
I install the app, but am not happy that I have to sign in to WordPress.com in order to use it.
There is a new beta editor so I opt to try that. I authorize the app to gain access to my photos.
I’m happy to see an image optimization feature – this is so darn important!
I am curious to see what size images these are, as I am not sure where the dimensions are stored.
I like being able to take screenshots and insert them into my posts.
I’m having fun trying this out. I learn how to directly upload to the media area.
I find out the size of the images I am uploading.
These are a decent size, close to my recommended 100kb, but the image above this one is 835kb, too big if you want a fast-loading site.
I’m not clear if images added directly to the media area are optimized or not.
So far, this is a cool app, available for iPhone or Android and I will continue to explore it. I’ll be interested to see what this post looks like on desktop after it goes live.
