Blogger Photo problem solved!

As you may remember I was having issues with trying to upload photos onto my blog...I had reached my quota! Well, after complaining on my blog, I received lots of great, helpful advice! Blogland is so great...I think we could solve the worlds problems, given a chance !!

Anyway Kate,  at A Sometimes Quilter, was very helpful in teaching me how to load pictures into Flickr and then attach them. I did have a Flickr account, but must admit haven't really used it much.

And then Debbie over at Stitchin' Therapy posted a great page on how to reduce the size of your stored pictures. You can find the page here. ...and she also has a really fun blog too, so have a look around while you are there :)

Anyway, apparently if a picture is less than 800 x 600 it doesn't even count as space...who knew??
So Debbie explains how to reduce the size of the stored pictures and reduce your quota! It is a bit of a convoluted process, and there may be an easier way if you are really tech savy...but this worked! I am now down to 4% of my quota and can upload directly onto the blog again, which is the easiest and fastest way for me.  I am now reducing the pictures as I go along, so I don't hit this wall again.

Thank you to all who offered assistance Rock!!
