MarsEdit 4.2.6: Restore Blogspot/Blogger Image Uploads

January 17th, 2019

MarsEdit 4.2.6 is now available at the MarsEdit home page and on the Mac App Store.

This update restores the ability to upload images to Google’s Blogger/Blogspot blogs.

As luck would have it, when I released 4.2.5 on Tuesday, it happened to coincide with the very day Google shut down its interface for 3rd party apps that use its Picasa Web Albums API. They are now requiring all apps to use the Google Photos API instead.

It’s going to take a little time to shift MarsEdit to the newer API, but luckily Google provided a bit of a safety valve, allowing apps like MarsEdit to continue using the Picasa API for a couple more months while we make the transition. It just required a minor change to the app to “enable” the workaround.

If you enjoy MarsEdit, please consider writing a review or rating the app on the Mac App Store, spreading the word on Facebook or Twitter, and of course, writing about the app on your own blog! Thanks for your support.
