Lately I have read that many people are having difficulty posting, commenting, and downloading pictures on Blogger.
For whatever it’s worth, I have a few trial and error suggestions.
Time Out: Right now, my middle daughter Lauren, the elementary librarian and technology go to person for her challenged/challenging parents (while in college, she left us index cards with instructions on how to operate the VCR and later the DVD player) is screaming:
“Are you kidding me? Don’t listen to her!!! She just called me to ask me where pictures go when you accidentally delete them!”
Anyway, I have found it more helpful to:
*Use Mozilla Firefox instead of Internet Explorer because …I don’t know why…it just works better and Lauren said to switch (the librarian) so I did. This can be downloaded free, and placed on your desktop.
*Use Windows Live Writer instead of Blogger for posts. Rhoda at Southern Hospitality recommended this, and it changed my life and my sanity. I don’t know why. It just works better. You can still go to your Edit Posts tab and make changes.
*Windows Live Writer posts pictures better, but again I don’t know why. Windows Live Writer is a free download.
*I use Google’s Picasa for my photos because it is free, does basic things, and I have a feeling I would have to call Lauren too much if I had something more complicated. I am already on a short chain… Sarah from Memories on Clover Lane recommended this.
Oh- and just so you know that I am a reliable authority, I just deleted all of the photos on my camera’s memory card as well as from some folders on my hard drive… At this point in my life, adrenalin surges are not always healthy.
Oh#2- I saved my gift cards, Christmas money, and any loose change I could find, and I now have a new camera: a Canon Rebel Xsi.
I want to be able to use it without the flash on its specialized settings (ie. macro), but ‘it’ won’t let me. Can anyone address this?
I can not call Lauren…
