Windows Live Writer Gets Image Editing Capabilities
By on June 2nd, 2008

It feels good to be back after a break of 5 days, but in those five days I had a lot of work to do, including finding and moving to a new Apartment to live in. Everything went smoothly and here I am back again blogging from my new apartment which has much more light and is spacious enough to setup a desk so that I can blog comfortably.

Getting back to business, Window Live Writer one of the most widely used blog editor (and my favorite too) has released a new Technical update which includes features like image cropping and tilting, more border styles for your images and support for centering images.

In addition to that you can also add image previewing effects from Lightbox right from the editor itself.
