PicApp Plugin for Movable Type

PicApp LogoThe PicApp Plugin for Movable Type puts one of the broadest and highest quality image repositories right at your finger tips. With this plugin users can quickly and easily enhance their blog posts with professional photography and imagery -- all of which has been pre-approved and licensed appropriately for you to do so. You never need to worry again: "is it ok to use this image on my blog?" The answer is, "YES!"

Once the plugin is installed, a PicApp button is added to the entry editor. Clicking it opens up a dialog which provides a window into the PicApp image database. Select the image you want, the size you want and then insert it into a post. It really is that easy.

What's more is that images inserted into your post via this plugin will automatically be added to your Movable Type Asset Management system. This allows you to track which photos from PicApp are being used where and easily re-insert photos previously inserted.
