Fast Star and Mini Tutorial

Blogger is still being a booger... Still no upload photo's button, completely missing!
I've been asked, so let me say how I'm putting up new pictures without the photo button.
I got a free account on photobucket. I edit my pictures with another free program called gimp. I use it to resize, and crop. There are lots of tutorials out there for it, but if anyone wants help, send me an email at anniclan AT aol DOT com and I'll do what I can.

Ok, so now I have the picture I want to upload, and I go to photobucket and upload it. Then I click on my library there, hover over the picture I want, when the little star thingie shows up in the top left corner, I hover over it and choose get media links. I click 'direct link' and it automatically copies to my clipboard. Then I come back to blogger, click the picture thing and on the right side, I click 'from an URL. In the box that pops up, I right click and paste. The picture shows up and I click to insert it.

The biggest pain is that you have to do one picture at a time. You can't insert a bunch at once like with the regular upload photo button.

So it's a bit of a pain, but it's working. But blogger better fix itself soon!

On to the kitties!

Ok, just Star. And yes, this is a sequence, even though it's all over the place. That's how fast Star is when she's playing, she's in one spot, then tears off to another, then another and bam, she's done! You can't get any in between shots because she's just too stinking fast!

What was that? Did I see Da Bird?

Ha! Got it! Sneak attack from under the Royal Footstool!

Thought you could escape to daddy's chair? I don't think so!

Yeah, I'm done. There's some real birds out here that need to be watched.

Da Bird is cool, but it still pales in comparison to REAL Bird!

That's quite a bit of action there, Star!

Oh I hope that things even out on Blogger soon. So far we haven't had a problem but you never know!!! That last picture of the flattened cat body on the tree is delicious. Kissable!

She's so cute!

Regarding the upload photo button, have you seen this:

It seems that the problem is when you use Internet Explorer.

Hi Andrea!
I finally learned how to do pictures on blogger while they fix that issue. You go into html mode and then you can upload pictures like instead of compose mode, click html.
Much Love,
Mindy :)

I never use the Blogger upload thing I have all my pictures stored with Picasa which also belongs to Google/Blogger. There it's easy to upload several pictures at once and you immediately get the htlm code.
Your kitty pictures are so cute !

Marg said...

Way to go Star, you get DaBird.That was hard work. Much easier to watch the bird TV outside.
Good for your Mom to figure out how to do the picture deal on Blogger. Have a great day.

Leo and Star…you are such lovely, fluffy kitties. Won't you please come visit my big, grey, fluffy Giulietta and her seven fur mates at I will be back to visit you!

Photo Cache said...

WE haven't encountered any problem yet, fingers crossed, when it comes to Blogger. But mama is keeping all the photos at Flickr so she can blog anywhere. Glad you can post pix now.

Glad you've found a way to insert the pictures even though it's a tedious process.

We still recommend trying a different browser than Explorer. When we've tried to upload pictures using Explorer, our folder doesn't even show up from our computer file.

Good luck!

*ponder* real birds or da bird...
mowzers, that's a TOUGH one!

Mommy sez thanks for the photobucket info!

Unknown said...

The Island Cats said...

Da Bird is fun...but a real bird is funner. ;)

We hope blogger stops being a booger soon.

Star, I don't think I can stand this much excitement. My poor heart is pounding, and that last picture? Well, it's just PURRfection. I think that even with my slightly increased bulk I can still squeeze onto that tower, just to your right for a little snuggle.
