Photo Uploading - Troubleshooting.

Many people, (bloggers), report trouble when trying to upload photos to their blogs. The reasons for this could be many, but generally fall into areas in which you can help yourselves - if you know what to look for, or test for. Blogger Help is a good starting point for troubleshooting -

  • You can upload images in JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, or BMP format. Export them if they are of a different, and change the format, replacing the file. It's easily done through MS Picture Manager.
  • Turn off your popup blocker. Sometimes popup blockers will prevent the image upload window from appearing. You can also add as an approved site in your popup blocker settings, so you don't have to disable it entirely.
  • Disable any plugins you have installed on your browser. Plugins can occasionally cause incompatibilities with some web applications, like Blogger's post editor, so it's good to test this and see if it has any effect.
  • Try using a different browser. The latest version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Windows Internet Explorer will usually give the best results. If you're already using one of those, give the others a try.
  • Clear your browser's cache and cookies. Always recommended, in case the problem has already been resolved but you're still getting old data from your browser.
  • Make sure you click the Add selected button. The upload process isn't actually complete until you click Add selected on the final screen. Just closing the window will prevent the image from appearing in your post.
  • Check your limits. Blogger allows you up to 1 GB of total storage, shared with Picasa Web.
  • If you are posting pictures through Blogger Mobile there is a limit of 250K per picture.
