Does anyone have any suggestions for an all-in-one photo editing/FTP/weblogging software? I know how to do all the steps manually, but am having a very hard time teaching her how to do it all. Wanted features - photo cropping, auto levels, thumbnail creation, ftp, and hopefully some sort of utility to generate weblog posts with image url and popup code. Does that make sense?

A lot of the larger photo sites have software or tools that tries to at least some of the stuff you're talking about. Flickr's got a great reputation (I haven't used it), and I know my wife uses the Ofoto software and really likes it. Ofoto's owned by Kodak now, and the site pushes you to buy prints, but the (Windows-only) software does allow you to arrange edit the photos locally, and then upload them to "albums" on the site that you can share with other folks. No text posts, though.

I use gallery. It will do everything you mention short of making the weblog entry. It should be fairly easy to teach somebody to do that part, if necessary.

I have the Pro edition and its great. They also have a free starter addition. Hmm...not sure about thumbnail creation though. It's basically a WYSIWYG web page editor.

I also second the idea of using the OfotoNow's pretty easy to use and the site build your albums for you with slideshows and the ability to order prints.

I make my weblog posts with CityDesk, insert a few pictures if desired, and then add a link to an ofoto album that has ALL the pictures to the event.

There's an iPhoto2Gallery plugin for iPhoto which is the bee's knees. And of course ecto hooks up to iPhoto AND Movable Type, so I'd say it's worth a peep.
