Here are some more of the Fandango Button Snowflakes. I must admit I'm still addicted to these but that is sort of beginning to wear off a bit!!!
Today I'm going to tell you how to reduce the size of photos (or scans) in your blog. Blogger uses Picasa to store photos and there's a limit to how much storage you can have with them which is fair enough as it is, after all, free. You can pay for more storage but for most of us in these lean times that's not something we want to do!!!
Some people upload photos without re-sizing them which is part of blogging that a lot of people don't think about. I've been lucky in that I've made web sites and know a bit about storage levels. Anyway, the way to sort out the Picasa/Blogger problem with storage if you don't want to pay for more is like this. Well, it's the way I found by 'poking around'.
First go to your Picasa album online and sign in, check your storage amount as in the first picture below - this shows the amount of storage I've got left after about six years of blogging and reducing my sizes along the way. You can find this at the bottom of the home/first page in Picasa.
This will open up another feature in which you can see at the bottom left a link which says 'resize'.
Now choose the size you want but don't forget to tick in 'keep proportions'. I made mine 500 for the largest size. Now use 'apply' and then go to the top right hand corner where it says 'Save to my album'. Choose 'replace' and that's it!!! Takes time to do it but will save you having to pay for more storage space OR giving up blogging!!!
Now for the boring snowflakes!!!!
