In addition to this post where extra info is added to the image URL on posting.

I'm also finding that my images are stored in my LJ_emailpost gallery with security private, even when I send the message with the tag "lj-security: public" as the first line of the body.

Note: This is for MMS posts from my new Nokia 6800 phone with ATT mMode service.

I'm seeing this as well, and also seeing it on email posts with custom and generic friends locking.

The image security is a different beast than your Livejournal post security.
Images -should- be posted publicly by default, and only switched to private if you specify a lj-imgsecurity header. However, we've got a known bug at the moment that forces all picts to private when uploading. We're working on it. :)

Doh!

I even saw that report and didn't make the connection.

Pardon my ignorance, but where can I find information on posting images via email? I've got a camera phone that can take/email pictures and would like to try this.

TIA


PS: What about video clips? My phone can also take/email short (15 sec) videos as well. Are videos supported?

It's not a faq yet, so it's tough to find.

Go to your manage account page:
http://www.livejournal.com/manage/

Click on the email gateway settings:
http://www.livejournal.com/manage/emailpost.bml

Then click the instructions link:

Maybe I'm just too dumb to figure it out, but I did all of that and, when I make a post from my phone, I get nothing on the site. :(

Does this only work with specific phone providers?

1) Send yourself email from your phone.
2) Copy the From: of that email to a Address field.
2a) Set the "send error" box.
3) Set the pin.
4) Send a message to:
quecojones+pin@post.livejournal.com

If this doesn't work, I suggest you open a support ticket.

Looks like I may have to do that... followed instructions and managed to get a text post to show up in my journal, but when I try to email a picture, nothing. :(

No error message or anything either.

Are the pictures I send via email supposed to show up in my journal, the fotobuilder, or both?

Send a pic message to yourself and see how it arrives.

Some phone companys don't send the photo, they send a link to the photo.

also make sure the message doesn't have a pair of dashes as the first and only thing on any of the lines before real content.

check in fotobuilder to see if they still have the autopost as privete bug.

Well, when I get the message, it is a small image that links to the full sized image so that may be the problem. There aren't any pair of dashes though.

AFAIK, the autopost as private bug was taken care of... unless you mean a new one.
