Matt Mullenweg from Wordpress posted a screencast of the new Wordpress 2.5 publishing tool. This video highlights the customizable dashboard and easy photo integration.
One of the great things in the new Write page is the ability to bulk upload photos. You can select more than one photo at a time and upload them all at once. The tool then creates thumbnails on the fly, automatically.
You then have the option of publishing the photos as full sized images or as a gallery, all done with the click of a button.
