Ok... so I was reading Chasing Cheerios and she was lamenting about running out of space on her blog because she has too many photos...
Each time I see that little percentage thing go higher.. I had similar worries.. what's the point of having a blog if you can't have pictures??!! I have used up 34% of my photo allowance in only 5 months of blogging?? you do the maths.. this blog will be full and dead within a year...
so my investigations have led to this for anyone who is a dumbo like me~
I thought when I chose small medium or large that blogger was shrinking them for me.. whoops.. NO!!
So now I have a new folder in my pictures.. I copy the photos I want to use for my blog and leave the originals in their folder at full (Big) size.
I have photo manager so I click on that then edit photos, then compress - I compress to Web Page size - this took a photo from 700 KB (!!!!) down to 52 KB - NO wonder I was running out of space!!!
So now do I go back and reload every photo from the last 5 months or just do it from here.. with this new way... it should be years before the picture quota is full - and you all can go on enjoying me!!!
