Photo uploading problems

I have been encountering some problems when trying to upload project photos & would welcome any assistance I can get. First, photos look good in PICASA which I am using but when uploaded they are very dark. Any way to manipulate to get better looking shots? Second, in PICASA the shot (a vertical) is in good correct position but when uploaded it is laying on its side. Does that mean only horisontal shots can be used. Any help will be welcomed.

When you make a change to a picture within Picasa, you have to make sure to save the change to the picture. To do this, right click the picture and choose Save.

Until you do this, the change is not permanent.

This would explain both the image quality and the orientation.

SirFatty…thanks I will give that a try. PS I like the handle. My wife had an uncle whose name was Esley. He was forever known as Uncle Fat…and he was not an obese man so I don’t know how he acquired the name.

Your best photograph results with digital photos are always done with Photoshop or a program like it. Photoshop is several hundred dollars, but Gimp is a free download. It is as powerful as Photoshop and just as full featured. So don’t be put off by the complexity. Just google “gimp tutorial” and read whatever topic you need help with. You can adjust the lighting or anything else you need to make your photos look great! Click here to read about Gimp. It's available for download in several versions. Windows, Mac, and Linux.

paint.net is probably a better alternative, it’s quite a bit easier to use and free also.

You can Upload directly to your LJ post by:

1. Position cursor where you want the picture.

2. Click “img” just above the screen box you’re typing in.

3. Click “Choose” and then Select the picture from your computer that you’d like & click Opne.

4. Click “Insert picture”... you will see coding (a url to your picture on an amazon site).

When you click Preview, you should see it! Click Close Preview or Post the message.

That’s it!

Hi Richard,

You know how nicknames are… sometimes the best are the most ironic!
