Photo storage problems on Google!

Don't this just beat all?!
I'm trying to upload more photos and I can't.
Apparently, I have gone over the Google allowed free storage amount.
I have no clue what that means.
I am not a techno savy anything.
I just deleted everything off Picasa and that didn't help.
Now what???
Do I need to purchase additional space on Google to continue uploading huge files of photos?
If anyone has a clue, please let me know.

In the meantime, Fred is down here visiting and was hoping for some warm and sunshine.
We turned the heat on this afternoon to give the house a little warmer upper.
The wind last night was blowing so hard that the rear window of the car parked inside the
garage was wet this morning.
He's not getting warm and sunshine these couple of days!

We've had some game playing going on over here.
Good stuff. Fun pictures somewhere on my computer that I can't share with you. :(

Today we went out for lunch to share in celebrating Ruth's birthday.
Her favorite is the hamburger and so we went to Fuddruckers for lunch.
It has been maaaaannnny moons since I was there last.
Makes me wonder if the burger is a favorite of both Lauri and Sylvia (these folks are all my paternal aunts and uncle) as well as it was Dad's work lunch for quite a while.

I'm sort of having fun with Instagram on my phone.
Although I'm not uploading them to anything, I sort of like the oldies look of the photos.
Sure is nice not to lug a camera around so many places.

I go back to work tomorrow after having a week off.
4:15 alarms ringing should be enough to have my slugging down cup after cup of coffee.
I don't know when I'll have time to figure out this photo thing either.
Hopefully soon!
If you have any great ideas ... I'd love to hear them.

Here is the message I'm getting:

Whoops! You're out of space. Purchase more storage.
Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage you purchase is shared between several Google products and is in addition to your free quota. Learn more
From this I am assuming that all the blog photos are stored in some kind of Google Picasa Web Album and there really isn't anything I can do about it. I guess they have to be stored somewhere in cyberspace or they'd disappear off the blog.

when you upload pictures to the post, there is 4-5 options of where to get your pictures from. Upload, From Picasa, from phone etc... just choose the upload option, so you are not going through picasa at all. at least that is how I have been doing mine, and haven't had any issues! Try that :)

I only edit in Picasa and then save to my hard drive, so am uploading to blogger or fb from my hard drive. I don't have any web albums at all. From what I'm reading, it seems that you are only allowed so much free space on Google. Perhaps my picture files are too large and I've just gone over the limit. Drives me nuts!
So, thinking it had something to do with Picasa, I went through and deleted everything on Picasa because I have the same things in other files.
Not a good plan. Away went all my scrapbook pages, PAD scrapped pages, virtually anything that I hadn't saved as a JPEG in my own files (other than Picasa) is gone.
I really can't go through the blog and resize photos. Photos under 800x800 are free. Unfortunately, mine are larger than that.
Maybe it is time for a new blog name under a different google account.

As always, it was so fun to see your pictures ... what a special day for mom to celebrate her birthday in AZ. Next year we will be celebrating her 80th!

Yeah, Picasa is where images uploaded to Blogger are stored. I just bought the lowest amount of storage and cancelled the yearly plan or whatever. I haven't had any problems since. :)
