I'm new to TextMate, trying it out as a desktop blogging editor using the blogging bundle. I like its speed, compared to the online editor of my wordpress.com blog. If the trial version works out I'll buy it properly.
But there's a small problem. I've been trying to upload images, and find that when I drag an image to the editing window, it only gives me a link to the local location of the file and does not upload it automatically. This is a problem I've seen mentioned elsewhere on the Textmate blog but haven't found an answer to. What is happening, though, is that once I post my writing to my blog and then fetch it back for editing, only after doing that is it possible for me to drag-and-upload an image in the way that is indicated by the screencast and help file.
Is this normal behaviour? Should I be able to upload an image straightaway into the post before posting it? If so, how can I fix the problem I'm having? I'm on OS 10.5.8, using version 1.5.9 of Textmate. Thank you for any ideas or suggestions.

You should, yes.

If you get a regular link it sounds like you haven’t selected the proper (Blogging) grammar.
What does the status bar show? and/or the tool tip which appears on ⌃⇧P (press that when in a blog post). Also, what extension does your image have? And do you have multiple blogs or just one?
