Posting photographs. What's the update on the new system of posting photos?

There was as part of the gift subscription drive a perk listed about posting photos from our own hard drives instead of having to post them from sites like Flickr or Photobucket etc.

I was wondering when that will become available as I am posting at least 1 photo a day.

Thank you.

    This question came up previously, so I'm pasting in the answer.
    Previous Help Desk question:

    Here is the latest I have seen from Kos. Plans are that it will be up and running by the end of March:

    "And we're creating new subscriber features. The first such feature will be our image uploader and organizer, which will be ready by the end of Q1. It'll allow subscribers the ability to upload photos to Daily Kos and access photos uploaded by others (including the Daily Kos editorial team's). No more having to mess around with Photo Bucket or whatever."

    Markos' diary:,-and-Hu...

    elfling, Agathena's question has me wondering, will we be able to upload to a diary or comment from hard drives similar to how we upload an avatar? I took it to be an album, like Photo Bucket, but on Daily Kos servers rather than offsite. We would upload to this new organizer, and then paste in markup in the diary to embed the photo.

    Cool. I put in a few dashes to separate my answer from my question. I was afraid it might bold it, and it turned it into a nice separator line! :)

    Olinda, probably a bit of both. The goal is to make it very easy to add an image and for it to be easy both from your hard drive and to reuse a previously uploaded image.

    Sounds nicer that I imagined. Something to look forward to.

    Why this discussion is found on the front page at the help desk is left to careful students.
