When opening OLW after a complete save and shutdown, recently added pictures from the computer show up in the selected location only as a white box with an X in one corner. Hovering the mouse over the white box will identify the picture but the image is not present.  What does this mean and How do I fix the issue?

Hello Chip,

Unfortunately, Open Live Writer has not been updated since May of 2017. So, when changes happen to Blogger, or Google Photos, it breaks the process in OLW.

You’re not the only one with this problem – here is the OLW support forum and a post with your question. A possible fix is mentioned, but I doubt it will work now.

I gave up on OLW a while back and am just using Blogger.com to create posts. Here’s a video on inserting photos from Google Photos to Blogger – 

Sorry for the bad news. I miss OLW too.

Thanks Chris. I was hoping that there was an update but no such luck. I will miss the ability to offline write the blog and then post. If you see that ability emerge again, let me know.Wink
