Tumblr is a free micro-blogging service that lets you quickly post text, a web link, audio, video and photos. One of is relatively new features is the ability to collect several photos in a single posting called a photo set. If you have an iPhone 3GS or upgraded an older model iPhone, one if its new features is the ability to select and email up to five photos in a single mailing. Tumblr takes advantage of this feature by letting you send this bunch of photos to a special email address that accepts them on behalf of your Tumblr account and create a photoset for you…

Tip: Post photosets from your iPhone

I attached five photos to an email message and sent it to my Tumblr account. The photos were processed a lot quicker than I thought they would. The result is a five slide slideshow in my tumblog. The email messages subject line was turned into a caption under the phone.
