Blogger is making my life complicated

Does anyone know how i can download  my pictures from my computer without using Picasa. If i use Picasa, it takes for ever! Then if i use the old version blogger. It takes for ever too. Forcing people to use Picasa is so not cool!  I like it better before. Anyone ? Knows? Are they not done with the changes and are going to add download from computer?
I am going to take a nap. It is making me tired .... LOL

Hi Frenchy! I am so frustrated too..I like the other way better. I wish they'd change it back!It took me forever to do a post..and I gave up..cause it took so long and I don't want to use my picasa album either! If i figure anything out I'll keep you posted..!
Hang in there! I know how you feel!!

I can tell you that there are 2 different versions of picasa. The one you load on your computer to put all your photos on and then there is the web album version of picasa. If you have been uploading pics in blogger, then you already have a web album {that is where blogger stores your photos}.

You only have to load the pics you want to use into your picasa album and then pull them from there.

Go to your dashboard and click on the "My Account" in the top right hand corner. On the lower left hand side of the page you will find your picasa web album. Up load your pics there and then you can load them into your post.

I personally have had horrible problems with bloggers formatting lately and switched to Windows Live Writer and I LOVE it!!

You have to load it on your computer, but it is sooooo much easier to use than blogger's post editor.

here is a good post about it.

Bonjour Frenchy,
Yes sometimes Blogger can be very difficult. Like ALisa I've been using Windows Live Writer to do all my post and it works great, so much easier. You can download it free!
Bonne chance,
Mimi

Sorry you are having troubles..I use Picasa and it works very well.
I read the post below..sweet, you would be a wonderful mom to many...I say follow that gut feeling too...it comes from the heart! Come say hi :D

Hi Frenchy,
I had trouble all morning with blogger. They kept trying to force me to use a new version to download photos and I wasted hours!! I am frustrated too.
Now, all of a sudden, it's back to working again. I think they had a gliche or something.

Anyway it should work now. I hope.

hugs
Sissie

I KNOW!!! I wanted to throw my netbook out the window last night, I was so frustrated!!!

Laurie said...

I installed Windows Live Writer on my computer and always use it to write my posts, upload my pics etc, then I can publish it straight to my blog. I love it!

City farmer if you read this, i can not access your blog through your profile picture ...

I gave up on Blogger long ago. I'm not sure that I could have kept on blogging. I use Live Writer through Windows. Google it. It doesn't cost anything. I upload my photos right from my computer. It is much more user friendly.

Let me know how it works out.

It started working again normally again for me this afternoon Frenchy, hopefully yours is too, BUT I'm seeing a lot of Headers on my Bloglist that have the last post with them,,,,weird!

Like come look at my "Cat." And it's their Sofa and text from YESTERDAY! Ackk!

Hopefully THAT will get straightened out too!

Blogger is a pain especially with the size of the pictures and the indentation. For some reason everything is spaced out twice for me. I use photobucket to post pictures but I think that might not be a very productive solution. No picassa for me!

So far I have not had any problems , but that does not mean I won't. Have you checked "blogger issues'?

janet said...

So happy to see it was not just me having this problem. Blogger was not letting me place photos side by side...took FOREVER!!!!
