Picasa no longer uploads to Blogger

Hi to the Geeks!

I’ve been using Picasa to upload photos to my blog for years and have been very pleased.  BUT about a week ago that happiness ended.  Now when I select the photos to upload and then click on the “blog this” button, I just get a blank screen and the scroll bar flashes.  No more upload!!!!!!!!!!!  Now I have to go to the old fashioned way of uploading through blogger which is much slower.  Any idea what happened with Picasa??  See my attached photo.   WHOOPS……..after several attempts, I can’t add a photo here.  Can’t get a web address for it and it won’t let me upload from my computer.

Sue,

I never use ‘Publish to Blogger’ so I hadn’t noticed this, but I just tried it and get the same issue.

You’re not the only one with the problem – I see this thread in the Picasa forum on ‘Blog This Button Broken‘  So, they know about it and I expect it will get fixed … although it sometimes takes a while.

Meanwhile, I think there’s a better way:

Did you know that using the ‘Blog This’ button uploads your pictures to a Picasa Web Album?  It’s just an automatic album with a Blogger ID on it.  I prefer to upload it to an album I identify.  Then, in Blogger, use the insert image from Web Album.  It’s just one small step more and you have greater control.  

Here’s the video on how to add pictures to a blog post from Picasa Web Albums.
