“Cool Live Writer Features

  1. WYSIWYG editing – Live Writer downloads your blog’s HTML and CSS so that it can render your blog WYSIWYG style. This is particularly useful when inserting images, graphs, maps, or other objects.
  2. Image Publishing –   Live Writer makes it easy to insert images from your hard disk or from the web, modify size, set text wrapping options, apply borders, and other graphic effects. Writer makes it easy to insert a thumbnail and link it to a larger image.
  3. Maps – Live Writer allows you to insert a Windows Live Local map directly into a post. Writer can customized the map to show different views and automatically links to a larger view of the map on the Windows Live Local site.
  4. Plug-ins – The Windows Live Writer SDK allows developers to extend the capabilities of Writer to publish additional content types and utilities. I am sure lots of developers will come up with great plug-ins and add-ons.
  5. Compatibility – Of course Windows Live Writer works with MSN Spaces, but it also works seamlessly with TypePad which I use for this blog. In addition LW supports WordPress, Live Journal, Movable Type, Community Server, Blogger, Radio Userland, and a bunch of others.”
