## creds - need to be filled out
## blognmae - needs to be defined

## reads in image files from the command line and posts to your blog

@velocityzen

Thanks for example! But what is this on line 24?

@danpalmer

Does this actually work for anyone? I certainly can't get it to work.

I assume the "25" on line 24 shouldn't be there. I have tried everything I can think of.

@velocityzen

No, it's not work. But I made it work here https://gist.github.com/1242662

@kastner

just delete that line and it works.

@rhobslein

This is fantastic and does exactly what I wanted (upload several photos as part of a photoset) - but it fails for more than 3 images? I can't figure out why. It's still functional as is and will probably work for my purposes!
