One of the great things about using to do a blog is it's relatively simple. That's good for someone like me, who's most definitely not that techie oriented.

Still, there can be problems.

Here's one maybe someone can help me with.

I can't post original photos anymore. They appear initially, after I upload them via Picasa, but then they all turn into Red X's.

A reader alerted me to this the other day when I tried to post 3 photos of Andrea Yates I took off TV. They all turned into Red X's, which sorta spoiled the headline, "Three Faces of Andrea Yates."

So if anyone has any ideas on how I can fix this, or what I may be doing wrong, please leave me a comment or send me an email (

Thanks for reading.

I had problems with photos for several days. I checked the blogger forums, and there were plenty of others who were having the same problem. Blogger doesn't really seem to care (it's free!) and never lets anyone know if there's trouble. It seems to be fixed now, however, at least for my blog. Give it another try.

I noticed your "X"s where photos should be.

I dumped Picasa, a day or two after installing it. It was an extra, added, hassle that I could do without.

I just click the little icon in Blogger, browse to the jpg I want, then upload. I freely admit I have a bit of hassle making them the correct size and all, but, I don't do much photo-blogging, so I don't worry about it.

Check with Incongruities and AntiMedia and Pixie - those guys are computer whizzers, or geeds or nerks, or whatever that term is that means they know a bunch about this stuff.

Blogger help? Forget it.

i installed an updated version of picasa which seems to be working, so far.

thanks for responding to my pitiful plea for help
