computer hell

HELP!!!!!!
Something has changed with Blogger since last I posted...When I go to "Insert Image", the word BROWSE isn't there and there is no other option that is right for me....
So.....
No Pictures!!!!

Can anyone help me??
Lord, I am tired of problems....Truly! 

WAS going to write about the fact that my Computer is having major problems! I have had trouble with just about Everything. My computer is old and very tired, it seems. So...it is time for a NEW Computer......

I have no idea when I will be able to visit again, but will do the best I can, given the limitations......And if Blogger doesn't straighten up where posting photographs are concerned....this may be my Swan Song.....

Forgive me for not visiting....I just have been consumed with people being here to help with ALL the computer related problems and it has worn me out....!
There are just so many hours in the day......

I hope and pray that there will be....


More To Come......

If you're using Internet Explorer as your browser, lots of people are having the same issue. Use Firefox or Chrome...you'll be able to post images.

Naomi, it is a browser issue. Try going through Google Chrome. Copy/paster your blogs URL when you look for it on Google. I was using Internet Exploring as my search engine, using Google Chrome cured the insert image problem. Blogger has been notified, they are trying to fix it. Until then, just use the back door of Google. I NEED to hear your PIX for Oscars!

Yikes, I sure hope you find the problem. I just discovered that Internet Explorer no longer works with my older XP edition. Now I have switched to Google Chrome as my browser which seems to have solved all my problems. Could that be your problem??
Don't give up. We don't want to lose you and need to look forward to "More to Come---"

I hope you get the computer fixed and blogspot too! I don't write my post "on" blogspot itself so I am unaware of any problems. I use a program called Windows Live Writer... if I didn't have that I feel sure I would have given up on my blog long ago...I have never been happy with "fixing something thst isn't broke!" I think they forget that everyone isn't 18 where it's easy to learn new things all the time!

miss you!

Don't go!!!!

Understand about the blogger issues. I found lately that the photos are not going in order but when I press control and the touch mouse, I drag it into the order I want. Good luck. And maybe a new computer could be the key. (And you'd have to blog about that!!)

Naomi, I wish I knew how to help you. I do use Chrome, and I never have an issue with posting photos. Perhaps you can download Chrome to a new computer.

You may be right about the computer. Do keep trying -- it might just have been having a bad day -- that or the Internet connection or Blogger. Blogger can be terribly frustrating but I hear the same thing about other programs too, so I guess it's par for the course.

Please keep trying on your blog. I love to visit and I love your visits back. I know your others do too!

Try Firefox. Blogger is a pain in the ass sometimes, but it's easier with FF.

The short version is as new products are coming available the providers are having to produce more translations to each category of gadget. So the big 3 are not bothering with making the translations between Google, Apple and Microsoft compatable. Instead the R & D is being soaked up by vertical integration within proprietary lines to serve the smart phone, tablet and other user markets.

Google, Blogger and Chrome are all within the same corporate structure. The moment I switched from Explorer (a Microsoft entity) to Chrome everything is glorious again. Other than I've used up all the "free" space to post all the pictures on my blog. Fortunately, that was a very inexpensive fix.

Hang in there Naomi, and don't you leave us. Keep posting until the picture thing is wored out. I like to hear what you have to say whether their are pictures or not.

As soon as you have any kind of computer problem, there are a million people all giving you conflicting advice, and I for one find it all completely confusing. I think the Google Chrome advice is pretty good, but I have no idea how to install it.... I always have to ask my son to do these things.
Sorry.... I'm no help at all, am I?

Blogger are having some major issues at the moment. I was having problems with my whole template. The irritating thing is they refuse to do anything about the problems. You have to try and find you own way round them. As the others have said I'd try a different browser. I use a mac and Safari but sometimes I use Firefox too.

Don't give up!!!

Did you purchase extra GBs? If you didn't then you might've used up your usage allotment that is free. That can be resolved by deleting old photos that you don't care if they are still there. Automatically photos are stored at Picasa and I bought 80 GB some time ago which was reasonable then but they've upped the cost since. If it's not that, my friend, Diane had this problem for awhile and it solved itself eventually. Big frustration while it's ongoing though :(

Same Naomi...I am experiencing the same problem too and getting anxious and frustrated.

I read through some of your blog friends' comment and advice and shall check it out too.

So, hang in there Naomi...don't go ya.

Have a great weekend :D

Naomi, I am sorry that you have been with problem to upload photos to your blog. I have been with many problems with Blogger too. To did my current post, when I was to upload one photo there is not place to click to insert the image. I have only this options: From this blog, From Picasa Web Albuns, From your photo, From your webcam and From a URL. Then I upload my photo to Picasa and then transfer from Picasa to the blog. It's a big task! Reading your comments I will try to use Google Chrome... Let's see...
I wish I knew how to help you more, but sorry, I could not...
Maybe with the new computer the it will be ok!
But, please, don't give up!
Big hugs!

Naomi, I just now try going through Google Chrome and when I go to upload a photo, there is a place to Choose Files. Then I upload a photo to my blog easily. I really don't know how to do, because I prefer so much Internet Explorer than Google Chrome...
Please let me know if choosing to Chrome, your problem was solved.
Big hug!

Oh Naomi, you can't leave!! There would be this huge void in so many lives! I know that blogger can be a major pain in the arse. I haven't posted in awhile and I dread trying and especially trying to post photos, but I'll give it a whirl soon. I have just gotten my computer back after having it worked on again. It seems once we learn something then they'll change things. All this technology is great but they keep advancing things and changing them. I don't think they realize how hard it is for people like me who aren't crazy for change!!! Hope you are doing well otherwise dear lady! xxoxx

The problem will likely still be there when you get your new computer. They are trying to correct it but until they do, just click on the HTML button before you select your pics and then rehit the 'compose' button.
It's the workaround that google suggests. It does work.
