There’s also, sadly, one very bad thing. The approach to image embedding is lousy.
- Create a SP blog that will hold the images that will be referenced in the wiki.
- Use Windows Live Writer to post to the wiki-image-blog. Drop your image into WLW, resize it as needed, etc. If you like, use WLW to write your image associated wiki text first draft as well.
- After you post to the Wiki, copy and paste image and text into the Wiki editor rich text field.
This takes surprisingly little time, far less than any other option I've read of. I admit, it is convoluted!Update 1/11/09: I've been doing this for a while now. It's bloody brilliant, even if I have to say so myself. You can take advantage of the wiki-image-blog to attach a bit of metadata, including labels, to help with image reuse. If you read this and know anyone using Sharepoint 2007, I suggest send this on to them. They'll be forever grateful.
