Auto Support for twit pic
When you use Twit Pic to upload a image, and then twitter the link.
, TweetFace shows the Twit Pic banner instead of the image.
The image that is uploaded via Twit Pic should auto default to the link image.
This issue is slightly complicated because TweetPo.st just sends the link to Facebook, which then crawls the page and automatically chooses the first image it finds on the page for the preview.
It is possible (and very simple) for the service to optimize their pages so that the right image is selected by Facebook for the preview (see http://www.facebook.com/share_partners.php). We have submitted a Get Satisfaction request for TwitPic to add this support: http://getsatisfaction.com/twitpic/topics/optimize_twitpic_pages_for_facebook_sharing. So, please go vote for it.
Update It looks like the folks over at TwitPic have acknowledged the issue and are going to work on it. They have promised to update http://getsatisfaction.com/twitpic/topics/optimize_twitpic_pages_for_facebook_sharing when it is done.

My to 2 cents on this: is it possible to post make tweets with twitpic (or any other pictures) into photos post on the wall instead of a link post, for some reason this one seems more logical for me (though has some other problems).

Soup.io (http://www.soup.io/) has a nice implementation for auto-suggesting the right image no matter which service used. I assume that they get the one with the biggest size. That should work with all imagesites.

Also add support for http://pic.im/ :)

What Steve said!
If not at least bring in the thumbnail instead of the hosting service's logo (MobyPicture too).
Or provide an option to automatically exclude picture service links so we can manually upload them ourselves without duplicating them. Thanks!

I'd love when I do a twitpic, that it'd be uploaded to Facebook... and thus shown to Facebook users as a real image [rather than a link to twitpic.com], so that users on FB could tag themselves, etc.

support for yfrog would be handy too. Since TwitPic has been going down a lot lately.
