Publish via email
You can easily publish an entry to your journal by sending us an email. Here's how:
1. Compose the email
To get started, compose a new email (the steps below may vary depending on the email program you're using).
- type the entry title into the email's Subject: field.
- type the entry description into the email's body.
- attach the JPG file you want as the entry's image.
2. Send the email
Now you're ready to send.
- make sure you're sending the email from the address you use to sign in to Blipfoto.
- send the email to email@example.com
3. Check your inbox
Once we've received the email, we'll send you a reply containing instructions for what to do next. Normally you'll simply be asked to confirm publication.
Tags & descriptive text
To add tags to your entry, just create a new line and type 'tags: ' followed by your list of tags, separated with commas.
Just like publishing from the website, we'll read the date of the entry from the image's EXIF data. If you know your image has no EXIF or that it is incorrect, you can specify the date manually by creating a new line, and typing 'date: ' following by the date in UK format (dd/mm/yyyy). Manually providing the date means your entry will be added to the moderation queue.
My email program attaches company logos to my messages. Does that matter?
We automatically find the largest JPG attachment, so other images won't be a problem.
Can I make parts of my text bold or underlined?
If your email program uses HTML, just format the text as normal. We'll convert any bold, underlined or italicised text, and create links from URLs too.
If your program uses plain text, you can use "BBCode" style tags (e.g. [b]...[/b], [u]...[/u]) instead.
I've sent an email but didn't get a reply!
You may need to wait a few minutes before we send a reply. If a reply never arrives, it may be stored in a junk or spam folder. Alternatively you may have sent the email from an address not associated with your Blipfoto account.
I received a reply saying there was no image attached. What am I doing wrong?
We have tried to cover as many email systems as possible, but there's always a chance your system attaches images in a way we haven't anticipated. Use the Contact page to tell us more.
