I was given this lead by a comment left on this blog, and I found a great app to add photos to blogs in the process!

PicApp is a web service for free and licensed images that you can add to your blog. It has even teamed up with Splash News so you can now browse the latest celebrity content from Splash News from within PicApp, and then copy and paste those images to your blog.

Each PicApp image – even when embedded on a blog – comes with a link directly to the copyright image, and can be traced through PicApp’s interface for content owners.

The only catch is, this app does NOT work on wordpress.com for now. Drats! But if you have a blog hosted on another platform, do check it out!

With the 2008 Beijing Olympics officially launched later today at 8.08 pm on Aug 8, 2008, it’s perhaps timely to list a few Olympic-related nuggets on this blog.

First, check out ReadWriteWeb‘s suggestions on catching Olympic highlights on your mobile phone here.

Next, check out BBC Sport’s marketing video for the forthcoming Olympic Games below, based on the traditional Chinese folklore ‘Journey to the West’. I think it’s pretty cool!

Happy Olympics 2008, everyone!
