Whew!

That was a close one! I experienced a brief moment of panic when I tried to upload this totally adorable photo of Austin after voting last night and Blogger told me I'd reached my limit of photo storage!  What?!  I never realized such a thing was even possible!  Guess I should have been paying more attention to that little note in the photo upload box (hmmm, I know it's there in the old editor, but now that I think about it, I'm not so sure it's there in this new one...) Anyway, I spent some time today (too much time, if you ask me) deleting old photos that I had no idea were being stored in the Picasa web albums that I didn't even know I had. Apparently Blogger stores them there automatically every time you upload a photo, even if you never publish it!  Good grief!  I couldn't even believe the number of useless photos I had stored there taking up valuable space.  But, by clearing out those cluttered albums I've gained more room for new photo uploads, so I'm happy.  :)

Ummmm.... I am clueless about this. How do you find your Picasa album? Can other people see it? It stores them even if you DON'T publish them? Ahhhhhhhhh! Help!!!!

OK, I figured out how to find the album but what I want to know is in the case of the same picture that was uploaded multiple times but only published once. How do I know which one to delete or does it matter? I don't want to start deleting images only to find that my posts start having holes in them where pictures used to be and it says it can take up to 24 hours for the picture to be removed from the album and your blog.

I'm glad you were able to find it; I just posted an explanation, lol! But I have the same concern as you. I have duplicate photos, too, and so far I haven't deleted any for the same reason! But, having already used 87% of my limit (I was at 99% last night!!!) I feel like I still just need to clear more space! Or maybe just not post so many photos from now...but, that's just how I blog! :( I haven't checked to see if there's a help section; maybe that would help clear things up?

Cute!!
I reached my photo limit on blogspot and had to buy more. I don't remember how much but it wasn't a lot. It was worth it not to have to start another blog!!
