I fired up my local server today and installed the latest version of WordPress 2.9 and was surprised to see the basic image editing tools already available in the media library. I decided that the best way to display them in action was through video which also gave me another reason to open up CamtasiaStudio. In the video, I show off each individual tool as well as provide feedback on the crop tool as at this stage, does not appear to be user friendly. But, it’s very early in the development stage so it will most likely be better once it hits the public’s hands. Check out the video.

I really need to start doing more of these if I’m ever going to improve. This screencast features a review of the Advanced Exporter plugin for WordPress and WPMU by Ron Rennick. This plugin adds the type of functionality I’ve been expecting out of the WordPress exporter ever since I learned about the process. With it, you can easily export a single category of a blog to import into another. That is something many people have wanted an easy way to do for a long time. You can also use the restrictions to create multiple WXR files in case you can’t import a single large file. Also worthy of note as that this plugin was entered into the WeblogToolsCollection plugin competition for 2009. I know this thing is going to be a big hit whether Ron wins or not, I’ll make sure it does. Thanks for creating it Ron.
I recommend watching this video in FullScreen mode in order to make out the text and such. One of these days, I’ll figure out the magic presets for Viddler publishing.
