Trying to set up a blog… have my pictures in Google + but when I try to add them to the blog… nothing happens… have to exit the page… can’t even get back to the blog?

 

Thank you

How are you trying to add them to the blog?  In blogger – if you click on ‘Insert Image’, you get several choices.  The 3d one is “From Picasa Web Albums”  Google+ Photos and Picasa web albums are the same thing for this purpose.  

Is that what you were using?

If so, and it still hung up – one thing I would try is to use another browser.  Chrome usually works well.

Chris….I need to lift some pictures of Frustrated Maestros from the link here.  They do not copy or save as.    If I cannot get a few into my computer Picasa cannot be used to make collages of them.   This link is from The Rocky Mt area rally.

I followed your link, and if I clicked thru to a picture, I could then right-click on it and get the Save Image As … option.  Check out my screen shot.  I am using Chrome as my browser.

Worse case, you can always capture the picture on the screen using the Windows Snipping tool – Or even Picasa!  

Check out this video on using Picasa to capture screens:

Thanks for your advice….but!!  I have not been totally successful.  I could not keep the tutorial videos going…am at Tiffin Repair, Red Bay, with good wifi.  Copy and save as did not work.  The only way I was successful was with the snipping tool and sending them to myself…one by one!  Between sendings I forgot the steps.  This took forever.  I got most of the 6 photos snipped and they showed up in Picasa…..with the exception of Seven girls.  It shows up in my pictures but not in picasa.  Gremlins are well and alert.

Think that from now on I will require pics jpg and only insert links if the area wants them in their blog.  But…they must also send me jpg pics.  Any suggestions.

It sure sounds like you’re going thru several more steps that you should need to.  I’ll have some free time for the next week, maybe we can work out a phone call.
