Whew! Yesterday I received a message on my screen when I tried to insert a photo, telling me I was out of space and would have to purchase space from Google in order to upload anymore photos to this blog. I immediately emailed a fellow blogger and she sent me some information that rocked my world!
I was able to go into Picaso (Google site) and start downsizing my humongous photos. I won't have to delete any of my past blog posts and when I update the photo sizes the program automatically changes them on my posts. Very technical ~ for a newby like me.
So, then I took a look at my camera and changed the picture size setting so I'm not taking up so much space when I shoot the pic. Guess that's what they've been talking about in all of these classes I've been taking but it was falling off my "teflon" brain. I get it now!!!
That's the good news. The bad news is that I have used 467 photos in my blogs since I started blogging last September. I have not figured out a way to do a mass down sizing of them so I'll just take it a few photos at a time. I just downsized about 10 of them and it freed up enough room to add this photo I took (with the new setting on my camera!) of Missy. She looks like she could care less about megabytes.
A big Thank You and shout out to Susan Stevenson of "Living in Alaska - Life in the Last Frontier". After I emailed her a desperate call for help, Susan sent me an email with some great advice for sizing my photos. What a lifesaver! You should check out her blog ~ she's an awesome photographer and her work is spectacular and is now my forever hero!
Oh, I'm so happy I could dance!
