New Windows Live Writer Adds Easy Image Editing

Written by Amit Agarwal on Jun 2, 2008

Windows Live Writer, your favorite blog editing software, just got better.

You can now crop pictures and screenshot images right inside Windows Live Writer without requiring external software. There’s a new tilt feature that lets you rotate pictures by a custom angle.

The new version also adds some new visual effects for your photos including Reflection and Rounded Corners. They are simple things but definitely help in making your blog entries more appealing.

With the new Windows Live Writer, you can also upload videos directly to MSN soapbox though we would like to see support for YouTube as well.

Available at Writer Zone. It’s a technical preview but pretty stable. I also find this release a bit faster than the previous version.
