Introducing WorklogCreator
This is an application I wrote to help simplify and automate the creation of worklogs, as well as manage and store them. I originally started writing this app for myself, but then I realized others might find it useful as well, so I am posting it here, for the community. The app is 100% FREE and freely redistributable in unmodified form.


WorklogCreator allows you to quickly organize your worklog photos, comments, and site settings, and will build the worklog output at the press of a button. Since worklogs are saved as separate projects, you can Save and Load worklogs at any time, coming back at your liesure to add or edit items. when you are ready you can generate the web output, and post your worklog to your favorite website (like overclock.net) In fact, I am using the app right now to make this posting

Here are some screenshots of how you would use WorklogCreator to easily build a postable worklog

First you create a New worklog by filling in the necessary fields in the New Worklog dialog

Then you can use the Add Images dialog to pick and choose the images that you want included in the worklog, in the order you want them included (a preview of the images is included in this dialog)

Once you've added the worklog items, you can add the associated comments/descriptions which will appear before each image in the final output. There is a 320x240 preview of each image in the worklog, as well as a button that lets you see a full size preview of the image, so you can see things in full detail as you are authoring your comments and descriptions

Clicking on the Full Size Preview button opens that image in a scrollable window...

Once you have all of your images and comments in place, and are happy with the flow, you can build the worklog output. From this screen you can copy the data to the clipboard and paste it into your worklog post. Preview the post to make sure all is ok, and Submit!

Worklogs are saved as projects and can be reopened at any time, to be edited and changed.

Worklog creator is free. You can download and distribute it freely as long as it is without modification.

thanks Not at the moment, but if you include them in your text manually the site should format it out correctly. It can be done but theres some other additions I am going to make first like worklog item Insert, Image resizing, and built in FTP. Idea noted.
