This is absolutely a brilliant idea! If you blog, you know that finding and adding pictures to your blog post can be a tedious process. It starts with a search on Flickr Creative Commons copyright friendly image, followed by some size adjustments so the image can fit your blog, and continued with attributing back to the original photographer. So many steps to only do one thing!
Introducing Wylio, a new FREE service that finds, resizes, and attributes back to the photographer all at a click of a button. When you are done simply Copy and paste the chunk of automatically generated code into your article and voilà, you just made your life much easier.
The only grievances I have is the HTML part. I had to modify it a bit to fit the script, which actually defeats the purpose of saving time. However, Wylio is a couple of weeks old Startup so I am sure once enough people get to test the product, some adjustments will be made. Maybe the option to choose where to place credit?
All in all, I think it is a welcomed idea that will definitely make life easier for bloggers.
