frustrated.

I've tried REPEATEDLY
to get ANY image to upload
and retain any semblance of decency.

For some unexplainable reason,
EVERY.SINGLE.TIME
I upload directly blogger lately,
the images look soft (read: JUNK).

If you ever want to see another picture of mine,
EVER in your life,
someone enlighten me. . .

please.

growl.

I had the same problem. The fix I found was to upload the image to Flickr and then capture the code to post the image from there. The images look perfect if you do it that way.

I post using Windows Live Writer, and it seems to work pretty well.
Free program - super easy to use.

I totally know what you mean! I'm all about flickr because they're PERFECT on blogger. You just copy and paste the little code at the bottom of the flickr photo and paste it into your post.

well... i know you don't wanna do it, but flickr saved my blog.

I also upload to Flickr. I upload most of my images as "Private", so they can't be browsed through Flickr, and just paste the code into my blog. Much better quality than Blogger.

I have a mac so I use screen grabs, which create .png files. That seems to work far better than uploading jpegs. The sharpness/clarity is good enough that I haven't resorted to external hosting yet.

I don't know if this is a dumb response or not, but my pictures come out blah on blogger if I don't convert them first from RGB to sRGB. Sometimes they look fine without converting, sometimes not.

With pics I want to post I usually (in CS4) click: file-save for web & devices.. and it converts the file as a copy to sRGB.

Hope that helps if that is the issue..

I'm going to throw Smugmug out there for photo hosting. You have to pay, but I've used them for years and really like them.

Switch to Wordpress. You'll be a million times happier. I've been using Wordpress for my portrait blog for over a year. I finally switched my personal blog over as well, because my images look soooooo much better - I was even able to export all of my blogger posts to my WP blog, so I didn't lose anything.

I have the same problem.. Perhaps I'll try the Flickr suggestions.

Natalie (or anyone reading this), do you know how to make images on blogger larger without the sides being cut off by the proportions of the blog? If I double the image size by the html code, it's clear but too big and like I said, gets cut off. If I shrink that huge size, it's pixel-y?!

Much love,
Ashley
