Teaching creatives efficient workflows

I'm experimenting with Bear, an iOS app that Greg Dickson (a Canadian thought leader) has shared with me. I immediately jumped to the Pro level of the app when I discovered how clever its native hash tagging delivered clever efficiency to my workflow.

The first finding: images sent from Bear via email to Typepad don't appear in mobile browsers as responsive images--although they appear that way inside InoReader, my RSS reader of choice. I believe Typepad's servers won't create different sizes of the images so I need to add an additon step to my workflow if I intend to accommodate responsive images in my posts.

I used my iPDad Mini to shoot the original image for this blog post. I could get the embed code from Flickr for the image, but only after visiting Flickr through a browser on my laptop or via my mobile handset. The embed from Flickr provides responsive imagery for the blog posts.

I'm returning to this post with other findings as the spring semester of 2017 unfolds on the three campus locations where I teach in Ireland.

The second finding: I need to investigate all the responsive themes offered by Typepad and minimise manual edits of them because it's a time sink.
