So, How Did You Make It?
I spent the summer of 2008 out in Redmond as a Software Development Engineer intern working on three separate plug-ins (LiveUpload to YouTube
and Sample Flickr Plug-in
are the other two). If you're interested in building your own plug-in, the kind folks on the Windows Live Digital Memories Experience Team
have a development resource page
on building a Windows Live Publish Plug-in. Also, don't miss the Windows Live Photo Gallery Publishing Plug-in Platform Overview
over on MSDN. There's even a complete Sample Plug-in
for Flickr on there too. Of course, feel free to check out the source code of this plug-in to get started! Omar Shahine, a Microsoft employee, has some tips to share after authoring his very own SmugMug plug-in
