Provides the facility to automatically create a post when an image is uploaded to the WordPress media gallery.
The uploaded image can become the post’s featured image and some information about the image (such as EXIF data), or the image itself, can automatically be set in post’s content.
If the image provides its GPS coordinates, a Google map displaying its location can be added as well.
The image’s XMP keywords can be set as the post’s tags and a set of categories can be associated to it too.
The format of the generated post can be selected, if the theme in use supports it.
Useful for photo blog or where there is a large number of image posting in a wordpress driven site.

Some code sketches to handle XMP data have been excerpted from Jean-Sebastien Morisset, http://surniaulula.com/
