Pixelpost v1.7.1

Pixelpost

Meet Pixelpost, a small photoblog application that is easy to setup and use. It’s perfect for anyone wishing to regularly post their photos on the web like a blog.

Unlike other blog engines out there, Pixelpost doesn’t try to solve all of the worlds problems. Pixelpost simply does photoblogs, and it does them well. If you are looking for a full blown CMS or text-blog, Pixelpost isn’t for you. But if you want something simple, and designed from the ground up for photobloggers, like yourself, you’ve found the perfect application.
