Last week I ran into the horrible problem of not having room for any more photos on my blog! It was awful! Being a girl with no money I was determined to figure out what was going on and how I could fix the problem without buying my own domain. Yes, I know it's only $10 a month, but I have no income and therefore no way to pay for that.
So what did I do to be able to post photos again? I spent literally 5 hours searching Google and trying to figure out what was wrong and how I could get back to posting pics. Here are a few things I learned:
1. Yes, there is a 1024MB limit for Blogger users, BUT photo's under the 800x600 pixel size DON'T COUNT towards that total!
2. When you go to post photo's on your blog just Export them to another folder (I use Picasa 3 so the export button is at the bottom of the screen when you're on an individual photo) and then choose the "resize to" option. Make sure you move the bar to 800x600 and then you should be able to upload to your blog without any problems!
3. An alternative option is to upgrade your storage space...but I obviously didn't want to do that since you have to pay so much per month.
I hope that this information is helpful to those of you who are currently using the Blogger platform!
I have found a super easy way to resize your photo's without ruining them or the hassle of downloading a program, etc. Go to PicMonkey. Upload your photo, on the very first screen once you upload the photo you will have the option to RESIZE (this is at the bottom of the list so you may have to scroll down a bit). Make sure the box is checked next to "keep proportions" and then type in 800. The other number (which WILL be less than 600) will fill in automatically. Now just click "apply" then save your photo. *Make sure to save as a .jpg not .png!*
