[photos] blogger is killing me!

is anyone else having trouble with posting photos to blogger with the program Hello? i have not been able to upload a single photo all morning, and it's driving me crazy!

umm, this doesn't really answer your question, but blogger just started it's own photo thing. I tried it, and hate it. the pictures come out very crappy. but maybe their own new photo thing is interfering with hello (which i am not at all familiar with). though if you didn't have this problem yesterday, that wouldn't be true at all.

I contribute to the KQED blog, and I tried using Picasa/Hello yesterday for the first time.

About 2 hours later, I had a login attack on my machine with a trojan horse; my (very tech savvy) hubby did some digging and discovered that the machine launching the attach was at Picasa's Santa Monica offices; it appears that they have some kind of security flaw.

I also agree that the blogger image upload module is not intuitive, so I ended up just using an img src tag, and hosted the image on my own site. MUCH less painful.

This doesn't answer your question directly either, since I don't use Hello. But I just wanted to chime in and say that if I'm just posting a recipe and want to have a picture of the dish, I'm finding Blogger's own upload okay (it does take a while). Otherise I love Flickr for hosting my photos.

the thing i love about blogger with hello is it host all my photos for free at 1024k each

Maybe they want to put a stop to that loophole
I have thousands of photos stored on blogger this way

I only uploaded one picture (fittingly the dine and dish logo which i stole from your site, downloaded to my disk, uploaded again to blogger via hello with no problem. I did it at about 7.30am just fine

I am unable to test further til i get home.

I hope its only a temporary annoyance

are you still having problems?
I came home and it worked right away for me.

fatemah & cathy - when you used blogger's own pic thing, the pics were ok? it happened fast, and it wasn't hard, but the pics were gigantic and bizarrely pixly and just ugly. i could go into the html and try to fix the pixel ratios, but by the time i get it right, i would have been done with in on flickr 20 minutes ago. Not your experience?
