I've been working on an iPhoto plugin to upload images to Scrapbook. Its currently in beta: you can download it at:
http://www.filmgold.com/downloads/LiveJournal-iPhoto-Exporter-1.0b2.dmg
(requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and iPhoto 4)

It will currently upload photos at full size, or at a choice of reduced sizes. I know there are plenty of features I should be adding, but at the moment I'm keen to make sure the basic functionality is solid.

To install it, download the disc image. Make sure that iPhoto is not running. Select iPhoto in your Applications folder, select "Get Info" (from the File menu or from the contextual menu), open the Plugins section of the info dialogue and click on "Add...". In the file dialogue, navigate to the mounted disc image and choose "LiveJournal.iPhotoExporter". Close the info dialogue, and launch iPhoto.

Updates will be posted to filmgold.

Someone should do one for Picasa. That program is amazing.

After I mount the disc image, should I copy it somewhere? I presume this needs to be maintained on the system, but I could be wrong.

No, once you've added the plugin to iPhoto, you can safely unmount the disc image and delete the .dmg file.

Are you using protocol v2? Take advantage of the UploadPrepare method?

Do you have any screen shots or anything? I'm curious and don't have iPhoto.

No, I'm just using the regular /interface/upload protocol (cribbed from the Perl code on the Scrapbook site) - but I'd love to know more about protocol v2. Is there some documentation or sample code?

The new protocol is heavily preferred, and the old will most likely become deprecated in the future. Docs are at: http://pics.livejournal.com/doc/protocol/

For code examples, if you update from latest fotobilder CVS you'll see that fotoup.pl has been ported to use the new protocol, and the old fotoup.pl has been moved to fotoup_old.pl.

Let me know if you have questions or need anything from me, it's great to see clients like this! I'll actually be posting in lj_dev at some point too announcing docs and requesting clients. If you need more disk quota for testing / etc, let me know as well.

Lovely. I'll get it converted over to use the new protocol early next week.

Is fotobilder_user the best place to talk about Fotobilder clients, or is lj_clients more appropriate?

Fotobilder_user works just fine. We all watch it and such.
