One of the reasons I moved back to Blogger was that I find it easier to work with.

Over the last few days I've been adding bits and pieces and exploring what else I can do with Blogger.

One of the major things I have found is that Flickr will allow me to add pictures via email or my mobile phone to the blog. The only problem with this, is that flickr set the size of the picture. These sizes are thumbnail 100x75, small 240x180 and medium 500x375.

The first two I found to small for my taste and the medium one wouldn't fit correctly in the blog; it overlapped into the sidebar.

So I played about with the setting on the blog and have come up with a new setting that works with the 500x375 pictures.

Hopefully now I with be able to send pictures from my phone to the blog and they will look O.K.

The phone has a 2mp camera so the quailty should be fairly good on here.

Now if only I could find a way to connect my digital camera to the phone via bluetooth I could upload them as well.


  1. check your blogger a/c - you should have free pix hosting with http://picasaweb.google.com/home (perhaps part of the "new" blogger?)
    its where your upload pixs are sent to

    (Shout if I've confused the sh*t out of you)

  2. Thanks for that John.

    I never realised I had a Picasa website :-).

    I don't think I can upload pictures for my mobile to there though.

    A present I'm using flickr which seem to work O.K.
