Here it is! The official Snap.as browser extension. Just open it, drag a photo in, and the Markdown will be copied to your clipboard. Paste that in any Markdown-enabled editor (like @write_as) and there's your picture!

Profiles just got a lot better 😍
One minor change and a new feature tonight:
- Navigation bar now sticks around when you're logged in and navigating profiles and albums
- Users now have an RSS feed of their recent public photos! Right now, "public" means any photos added to an album; in the future, per-album settings will let you choose exactly shows up in the feed.
To access your feed, just add /recent.xml to your URL, e.g. https://snap.as/matt/recent.xml
What other feeds would you like to see?
Snap.as photo albums are live!
Just open the uploader and click the "Create photo album..." button to learn more, including what's coming next. If you'd like to unlock photo albums, it's just $10 -- a one-time purchase that will include all updates to this early feature.
I'm excited to launch this to everyone, and if you try it out I'd love to hear what you think so far!
Do you have any favorite quotes or sayings about photography? Would love to hear them for a tiny feature I'm adding in the app.
Migration complete! Not as smooth as we imagined, but we shouldn't ever have to do that again.
You can now upload photos again -- and please let us know if you notice anything weird happening with your account.
Okay, disabling new uploads for a few minutes.
For example, some requests were taking several seconds for some reason, according to our stats here: https://status.snap.as/780014127
Now response time is under 500 milliseconds. As a bonus, cached photos will stay online when the main application has some downtime for this upcoming data migration.
Some potential downtime coming over the next few days as we do a one-time database migration to a new system.
Won't take long, but I'll update you here when I know more.
