Can anyone tell me how I find out if I've used up my photo space on Blogger? I've not been able to upload photos, in any size, for two days. Thanks.

The photo upload tool on Blogger kills me! I don't think it's very reliable at all. It might not be that you've hit a limit. It might be that it just doesn't work.

I felt very relieved when I saw previous discussion here in the S'cool that said that the Blogger photo tool often doesn't work.

unless you have well over 3000x 1k images uploaded, I don't think you could have reached a limit. I have that many images loaded, I am kind of prolific in that sense and, touch wood, I havent come across a limitation yet.

Have you tried picassa and hello?
It usually works like a charm (I've used it over 3000 times successfully).

Hi Christine,

Try deleting your blogger photo cookies and clear your history. This has worked for me in the past.

I was able to upload today, but it was very slow.

Ive been having trouble all week...I just keep trying and trying until it works. Uploading to a blank post, then cutting and posting the html code works sometimes too...good luck!

Thanks to everyone who responded to my very frustrated query. I was finally able to get some of my photos up although not all of them.
Sam, I do have Picassa and Hello but can't figure out how to put more than one photo on a post. I know, I'm so tech-challenged I should just be put out of my misery :)

I'm a bit late to this party.. but I cannot agree more. I have used Picasa and Hello and Flickr to upload when I was really sick and tired of blogger but same here, I can't get more than 1 photo up. And I haven't figured out how to make a draft post in these tools either. They all post immediately or is that another of my tech-challenged handicaps?

A better late than never reply:

I use Picasa/Hello unless it's so wacko that I resort back to Blogger photo upload tool (which I have to admit has improved since they first started it.)

True, as far as I know (and I believe I asked Sam about this over a year ago and she agreed) you can only upload one photo at a time with Hello--and they do post immediately. I created another blogger blog (that isn't listed on my profile) and I upload my photos to that blog. Still one at a time, but I can do three or four one after the other if things are going smoothly. It is actually kind of handy having them all saved individually. I also started adding the date I post them to my blog in the caption along with the description of the photo.

Once I've posted a photo to one of my two regular blogs, I save the photo to DRAFT mode, mainly just because then I don't have hundreds of posted photos on the actual blog.

Hope this helps (and makes sense).
