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.
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.
