Hello
Is it posible to make plugin for viewing own Picasa/Flickr/"other serices" albums, alongside with the uploading to them(which is possible in MP though, but not in old good XnView)?
May be it would a good idea to make something like a framework, middle between XnView and plugins for certain services?
Would be just perfect!

Dear Pierre,
It is possible to upload pictures to flickr
but what i'm asking is the viewing own flickr/picasa galleries.
Lets say, an extra tab in the Tree Pane with ability to add own account and/or subscribe to someones picasa/flickr channel.
Do you think it is possible to achive in MP?

You can read this article, for example: http://sites.google.com/site/manishrjain/flickrfs
They mabe FlikrFS (and BerkleyDB for storing - minimal hardware resource consumption)
Its using FUSE: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_in_Userspace
In Windows you can use Dokan library for the same effort - http://dokan-dev.net/en/
So, it will be possible to view picasa and flickr albums in XnView directly. For now i use Gladinet, so my Picasa album is on the Z: drive letter. It would be just great to have it in XnView interface

Here's the Java(also .Net, C and Ruby available) Dokan library application with Flickr support: http://yukoba.accelart.jp/2008/05/windo ... ource.html
Take a look please, Pierre, maybe you can implement that in XnView as well.
