A Little Break

Hello, dear readers:

I'm having some issues with Blogger and Picasa Web Albums. My blog will be available (I hope), but no new posts for awhile. I'll be taking down hordes of photos and resizing them to clear up space on Picasa Web Albums.

I knew that Blogger re-sized the photos before posting, but what I didn't realize is that when a file is uploaded without prior resizing, Picasa saves the original file, and mine are huge. Hence, I am out of space.

Hope to be back soon.


  1. Lorrie, this is something that I'll have to do soon. Maybe while I'm working on the mainland - a good project for those evening! Good luck...and I'll see you next week.

  2. Don't go all wild and crazy now! It's a project best taken in small doses. Will miss you...

  3. House cleaning is challenging enough. Now we have to dedicated time to electronic housekeeping. Arrgggh!

  4. What a nuisance. Take your time, and we'll look forward to seeing you back soon.

  5. You will need to give us tips on how to do this. There are pictures I could delete from the albums but haven't figured out how. I am not the most tech savvy gal it seems.

  6. Digital housekeeping! Oh boy. May your time off be productive...and even enjoyable.

  7. I really despise having to do all this 'housekeeping' where photos are concerned! It takes the fun out of blogging when you have to be concerned about losing photos etc. I'm in the midst of trying to move mine to an external drive to gain more space here on my Mac, but having problems too - grrrrr!!!!

    Hope it all works out and you'll be back with us soon dear.
    Hugs - Mary

  8. Hi Lorrie - The same thing happened to me and my son convinced me that the best way to deal with it was to send $5 to Google and get tons more space. i took the easy way out!

  9. Oh, I don't envy you. Good luck with it!

  10. Wow, I had noooooo idea. I wonder if I have to do the same. Thanks for sharing and for educating the masses :)

  11. Lorrie,

    I didn't know that either! Yikes! I need to delete some of my photos!

    Thanks for the info!


  12. Is this when you send google $5 for more space? Tht's what I've been doing.... or is this something else?
