I began working on my Sunday Selections post for this week and when it came time to upload a photo (or eight) I was informed that I had used 100% of my 1GB free photo storage space with Picasa and I would have to upgrade my storage, with a choice of 25GB or more at a monthly cost to be paid by credit card.
In the meantime, I cannot upload any more photos to my blog. Phooey!!
I emailed my friend Kim, who is the originator of Sunday Selections, and she has suggested that I resize my photos. I have no idea how to do this of course.
I went to the Picasa site and deleted a few of the photos they have there, because there were multiple copies of the same photo.
I thought of deleting some of the others, but got a message saying they would also disappear from the blog and I don't want that happening.
I think I discovered there an option to resize them too, so I'll spend some time there tomorrow and resize as much as I can before my bum goes to sleep from sitting so long and perhaps that will free up some space.
The thing is, the only photos there are ones I have already used in previous posts.
What I need to know is how to resize the photos I have stored on my computer in the pictures section of the documents page. This is where I select my photos for my posts.
Can I upload unused photos to Picasa and resize them? Then select from there for my posts?
That seems like a lot of extra work, I have so many photos. So Many Photos.
So one option is to upgrade the storage space and pay for it.
Another option is learn how to resize photos I have stored in my files.
The third option is to discontinue posting photos altogether, which would mean the end of Sunday Selections and probably the end of the blog, since most of my posts are photo based.
Any suggestions? Help? Please?
