I had some unexpected free time at work and used that to finish my first, rather complicated, Siri-Shortcut. I was looking for a way to quickly post an image to this blog and then write a few words about it. It took a bit of time, lots of fiddling and many failures but in the end I got what I was looking for.
The workflow does:
- select an image
- resizes the image
- renames it based on input and current date (things have to be in order of course)
- upload the image to my blog’s folder in Dropbox
- opens a pre-filled file in Drafts where I can add some text and then use an action to post it straight to my blog, nicely with YAML header.
I’m sure that there are some steps, that I could have done simpler, but for my first rather complicated worklfow i.e. shortcut I’m very happy with the result.
Now I just have to find some images to post so that the whole effort was also worth it.
