(I’m trying to figure out why Picasa and my blog aren’t getting along.)

    I’ve been having disappearing photos lately, too.

  2. zstitches says:

    Lili, do you mean on my blog or on yours?

    It’s been happening to me when trying to view my own photos here — they come and go, and are gone more often than I’d like.

    That’s strange. On Reader, it shows a picture of Easter eggs, but here, it’s your adorable daughter.

    Oh, and I don’t even really know what Picasa is.

    And oh again, I think Joaquin’s “breakdown” is a publicity stunt. He has Casey Affleck following him around with a camera, filming his rap career. Weird.

    They appear on my blog, then when I come back they’re gone. Like on my last post which says “remember these little guys?” And then it skipped the 2 baby lambs to the nursing lambs (which made me sound dumb–because the mama isn’t little). I reposted the baby lambs photo several times before I got it to stay (finally today), and then I think it’s because I posted it at the 400 pixel size and not full size…
    something’s amiss. But maybe it’s just me.

    Now THAT I can actually explain — Reader takes a while to update if I edit, and I decided to change from eggs to Rose for my test photo. 🙂

    I remember now that about Phoenix’s rap movie, but I still can’t decide if he was “sedated” on Letterman or has brain damage or is a jerk or was putting on an act. I guess I hope it’s all an act and he’ll go back to being clean-cut and attractive some day. When I’m a lonely widow. And after he’s joined the Mormon church.

    Oh, and do you use Windows Explorer or Firefox? My mom and sister use Firefox and so do I and we’re all having problems seeing photos, so I wonder if there’s some Firefox/Picasa compatibilty issue. (Oh, and Picasa is Google’s free photo-hosting service; unlike Blogger, WordPress doesn’t offer photo hosting so I have to host my photos elsewhere and then link to them.)

    Lili, that’s funny that your comment got ahead of my two in the queue for being sent earlier — in my last two comments I was responding to Kristina. (It’s also funny that we’re having a real-time conversation in the comments. I miss IM . . .)

    That’s exactly what’s happening to me — sometimes my photos appear, sometimes not. I almost wonder if Picasa’s getting more traffic than it can handle. However, I do always custom-size my photos and Picasa just changed the “large” option on the link to “original size” and that is when my photos started disappearing. Hmmm.

  8. zstitches says:

    Holy cow — NOW when I load my blog, this whole post doesn’t show up. So now I don’t know whether it’s Picasa that’s freaking out, or WordPress. Or maybe Firefox. Or all three.

    I guess I’ll just have to give up blogging.

  9. Lili says:

    If you used gmail we could still IM 😉 😛
    I guess facebook works for im too, but I never sign on in facebook.

    Yeah. Mine disappear on “original size,” too. BUt i was doing original size and then clicking and dragging the photo to 500 pixels, and it worked fine for all but the one photo, which, no matter how many times I re-linked to it, it kept disappearing.

  10. zstitches says:

    I do use gmail. Oh, I mean I *have* gmail. I guess using it is different than having it.

    Where were you clicking and dragging? In Picasa? I usually resize before uploading. Hmmm again. Although, since my pictures have been coming and going randomly, I wonder if the resizing thing is just a red herring.

  11. Lili says:

    After copying and pasting the html, I click to visual display (in the draft/dashboard) and click on the corner of the image to resize it.

    I just thought it was my lame computer that didn’t see the pictures half the time. I love your pictures, so it makes me sad when I can’t see them! (I wanted to do the egg one that Dean did, but did it wrong because I couldn’t see the picture, but then saw it later. Next year, I guess. Happy Easter! (And I’ve never ironed one of my kid’s dresses. I like to pretend all their wrinkles are fresh ones from that very day.)

    I would be sad if you stopped blogging.
