I really don't know what to do. I emailed blogger help about my photo problem after reading their whole help page and they sent me an automatic response with links to all the pages I already read!! So it didn't help. I still can't upload pictures, and I have new ones! This is so frustrating....

Hey, a picture uploaded to get it in the right post...thanks ladies!

Melissa, I have noticed recently that I cannot include more than a few photos to one post. After a few, I cannot add... unless, I go to an old post that has no pics (or just one). Then, I add the post there, cut it and paste it to the new post. Crazy, wonky, roundabout way of doing things (and time consuming), but try this out. Go to an older post and just see if you can upload from there. Maybe it's just what's odd with my blog, but it has worked. Good luck!!

I have to try uploading three or four times before a photo will "take." Maybe try to do it a few times in a row because that's been workin' for me...

Melissa, I don't bother uploading photos directly into Blogger, since its never worked for me. I upload photos into flickr, then paste them into my post. It's a bit roundabout as well, but less frustrating! I can give you the html if you want it!

Catherine, that would be great! Thanks :)

I tried copying the picture from one post to another and that didn't work...I'm quite frustrated.

So, here's how I did it:

1. Go to and create an account.
2. Upload photos you want to use into flickr (make them slightly smaller before you upload them if you want to -- 400 by 600 seems to work best for me.)
3. When you want to add a photo to your blogger post, I use the following html:
img src="http://~~~" alt="example" /
(just put brackets: < > around it -- I left them off now so the comment didn't get all screwed up)
4. Inside the quotes where I put "http://~~~" is where you link to flickr. The easiest way to do this is click on your photo in flickr until the photo is really big, and drag and drop the photo into your html. It should work just fine as long as the url ends in ".jpg"

This seems really labor-intensive, but because I've never successfully uploaded a photo into blogger, it's the only way I know how to do it.
