Windows Live Writer Replacement
I just switched to Mac - an Air, great machine. But I'm still using my Windows PC every day for one reason - WLW. I know this has been discussed ad nauseum, but it still seems to be true that there's nothing quite like WLW for OS X. I would rather not run a virtual machine on an Air with 4GB if I can help it, not to mention I don't have an extra Windows license lying around.
I'm hoping someone can help me find a solution that can fulfill a very specific functionality. Scribe Fire and Mars Edit don't (Blogo ane Ecto are no longer supported it seems, and Adobe Contribute is expensive). My main site is very image-dependent and Writer has a specific feature that's critical for me. It has a GUI to allow creation and editing of tables. And when I insert an image into a cell, it downsizes the image to the size of the cell and links the thumbnail to the full-sized image. When it uploads to the blog, it published the image inside the table in thumbnail form, and when clicked the user sees the full-sized image. It's a seamless, one-step process - and as I'm not an expert on either html or graphics editing and time is always in short supply, it's absolutely mission-critical for me.
Can anyone recommend a possible solution - an app, or otherwise - for OS X? It seems silly to use a PC every day for one free app, or go to the expense and trouble of setting up VirtualBox, or Bootcamp. Yes, Writer really is that good - but if I can find a way to simulate this one functionality, I can live without it most of the time. Thanks in advance for your help.
