The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

PicApp does Reuters

[picapp align="none" wrap="false" link="term=Facebook&iid=8860787" src="b/3/9/7/Supporters_of_Islamic_c0f9.jpg?adImageId=13007283&imageId=8860787" width="500" height="340" /]

When Snapped Shot tried PicApp's service ages ago, their product consisted of a buggy Flash plugin that loaded a rather uselessly undersized image.

Apparently, they have improved things quite a bit—And now, according to their official blog, they allow public access to Reuters images!

Could this really be "Game On" for Ye Olde Snappy once again?

We'll just have to see if the above image works.

Supporters of Islamic political party Jamaat-e-Islami protest in Peshawar against an online competition to draw pictures of Prophet Mohammad on Facebook which Muslims deem blasphemous May 20, 2010. Pakistan has blocked the popular video sharing website YouTube indefinitely in a bid to contain blasphemous material, officials said on Thursday. The blockade came hours after the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) directed Internet service providers to stop access to social network site Facebook indefinitely on Wednesday because of an online competition to draw the Prophet Mohammad.

Update: I broke down and wrote a rudimentary PicApp module for Drupal. It's lazy, it doesn't support 100% of the features that PicApp offers, but hopefully, it'll make it trivially easy for me to make sure I'm fully in compliance with their Terms of Service.

In short: booyah!
