Help please....Problems with Blogger....

I had a message up to say I had used my quota of space for my blog pictures on Picasa Web Albums....Debby very kindly told me how to reduce the size of my pictures by going into Picasa Web Albums getting up my card photo and clicking on to Edit Creative Kit..and this is where my problem starts the icon on the right hand side that says RESIZE doesn't work none of the icons on the left had side seem to be 'active'......So has anyone else had the problem of not being to resize their pictures? 
Any help would be appreciated before I actually end up paying monthly to blog, I know its only a small amount...

Thanks

Anne

Thank you to those who have given me links to help get over my problem, I really do appreciate it.... Babysitting now until Sunday so wont get much time to sort it out until then....

Oh No! Anne, don't you just hate it when this kind of thing happens with blogger? Unfortunately, I'm not very good with this type of thing and would dread it. I do hope someone can help you, and I will be interested to see what they tell you. Good luck with this Anne, hope all works out well for you:) x

Anne you dont have to pay for your photo storage as there are ways around it though it takes a bit of time. flip through the photos in your picasa album and on those photos which are of large size you can either delete them altogether or save them to your computer. You will have to re upload the photos to the concerned blog post after resizing them to less than 800pixels. Here is a post in which I wrote about it http://cardsandschoolprojects.blogspot.in/2012/08/blogger-tips-for-crafters-8-easy-tricks.html

Hello Anne, I have just hopped over from Jules' blog http://jules-alwayswithaheart.blogspot.co.uk/and she has had the same problems. If you go over, she has a comprehensive step-by-step guide to say how she managed to resize her photos. Hope this helps. Lynn x

Carole Z said...

HI Anne, it's Carole again..thanks for hopping over to my blog and leaving the link...it was a super resizing site and I will keep the link and use it, but my photos were all quite small sizes. I did read on one of the forums and blogger help that this 'blip' can happen when blogger hasn't updated Picasa...mine corrected itself and is working ok again now, so I'm hoping yours has too...love your cards by the way, I've had a look through your pages..thanks to Wilma (Scottish Crafter) for pointing me in your direction, have a good weekend, Carole Z X

Hope Jules' guide can help you out Anne. In case it's useful to anyone, I resize my photos in photoshop before uploading. Vicky x

hello Anne
i don,t have pictures on picasa, but everything on my pc in several maps.
so maybe it is an idea to download your images to your pc.
but why do you have your images on picasa?
maybe for editing them?
anyway i hope someone can help you.
have a nice week and hugs from Ann
