Does anyone have any suggestions about the blogger limits on photo storage, etc.? I have been given a message, upon trying to upload photos for my next blog, that I am at my max storage capacity and must purchase extra storage space.
Then, I went to look at my photos via the Blogger upload side button --- didn't realize I had a photo account with Picasa (sp ?) and there are duplicates of the same photos, all throughout. Strange. It's as if their software automatically takes one photo and duplicates it, sometimes up to 15 times in a row, apparently in an effort to purposefully use more space.
If anyone has suggestions, I'll be grateful. I am not knowledgeable about this part of blogging and don't know if there's a round-a-bout way to go around this hijack manner of getting our money.
Of course, I don't want to delete past posts as they also serve as my personal journal and record-keeping for our farm life lessons. The photos are very important to me. Plus, my readership is important and I've made many friends with fellow bloggers over the past few months with this blog. I'd rather not have to make any drastic changes as many readers like to read past posts to sort of get caught up.
I'd love to be able to delete those extra photos off the Picasa (sp ?) account that I didn't realize I had set up. I'm using a Yahoo email address and am scared to change that because of it causing additional problems; however, I will do whatever is necessary.
I guess I should check the gmail account that is given upon opening a blog, but I've never had to use it since I have Yahoo at my beck and call --- hence --- I KNOW how to use it already.
Any help is very appreciated. If I can figure out how to erase all of those "extra" duplicated photos that I KNOW I didn't load, it should free up valuable photo storage space.
Suggestions, advice and personal stories are always welcome so that I can get this settled over the weekend.
By the way...family is coming into town to stay at our house to dog-sit and chicken-sit, but we are getting to make a long-awaited trip to our acreage this weekend! We've purchased a new, larger tent and will be taking the two big dogs with us on our trip. It's been a long while, since about December since we last went, so we are thrilled.
I'll be praying for NO TORNADOES! As for the Greater Dallas Area, I'm blessed that my oldest daughter Heather and her fiance were not hurt in the tornadoes yesterday. I'm a Southern gal whose home has been hit by a tornado in 2008, but I'll never become accustomed to the terror that comes with the whirling winds and devastation.
Little tent weekend, let there be good weather or we'll be high-tailing it back to the house made of sticks and bricks.
Oh yes...blogger photo storage...help.
