How to post a picture in friendfeed via feedly?

A couple of people asked us how to include photos in content they are posting to friendfeed from feedly. Given that the picture annotation feature is a little hidden in feedly, here is a mini tutorial:

  1. make sure that you are logged into friendfeed.
  2. open feedly.
  3. select and expand the article you want to share.
  4. alt+click on any image included. optionally add a comment about the picture
  5. (option) select and annotate any other picture or snippet of text you want to include in your friendfeed post
  6. click on the friendfeed action (located below the title of the article)

At that point, the friendfeed share panel should open, including all your annotations. You can add a message and share. If everything works as advertised, you should see something like this:

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Update: There was a bug in feedly generating a 401 error in the case where your friendfeed language setting was different from “English”. That bug has been fixed in patch 1.2.149.
