Topic tags/keywords: blog posting online photo storage computer problems question

Hi All,

I’ve spent several hours trying to upload about 60 photos and then link some of those photos to my first blog. My computer is a Mac running OS X 10.4 and I’ve tried using Firefox 3.0.15, Apple’s Safari 3.2, and a browser called Opera ver# 9.27 Photobucket isn’t displaying the tables correctly. It’s as if all of the links are double spaced and down at the bottom of the page to “view all” and “delete” or “move” buttons are behind the link boxes and therefore I can’t click them.

Anyone know of a solution. I uploaded a bunch of photos at full resolution and when I try to resize them on the Photobucket site, it locks up. I need to resize or delete them so I can upload then in a smaller size.

I’m not sure if you’re looking for just free photo storage sites or not, but I would certainly take a look at SmugMug. I’ve been using it for for photography for the last few years and I can’t tell you how much I love it. It’s about $40 a year for the standard account, but it’s unlimited storage plus tons of other features. It’s especially nice for placing pictures into blogs. You can link to different sizes of your pictures for blogs without having to resize them. Take a look at some of the links below to get an idea of what it has to offer. Also, they’re prints are amazing!

I’ve got pretty much the same set up as you and haven’t had any trouble using Firefox, though I am current on it (3.5.4). I usually do a bit of post-processing on my photos (using GraphicConverter) so they are usually not at full resolution when I upload. I’ve also never tried to upload more than 10 at a time.

You might also try changing either your screen resolution or the text size on the pages. That can help with links getting stuck behind buttons.

I use flickr as well, for non-woodworking photos, and am pretty happy with it.
