Photo's !

Has anyone got any tips on uploading photo's from 'My pictures' to the blog. Both myself and Nick are having the same problem with it.
When clicking on 'insert image' everything has changed - you now get the option to post from URL, phone, webcam or Picasa but not from 'my pictures ! there must be away round it if anyone knows??

There is a "Choose files" box to the right of the list that you click on then you can go to My Pictures and select the files you want.

On XP and Windows 7 versions that I've just checked both show the "Choose files" box so I'm not sure what's wrong with yours Nick?

There is a known problem with Blogger and Internet Explorer that some users get and causes the "choose photos" option to go missing. I use Firefox as my browser that's why I don't see the problem.
Workarounds:

1. At this point, most users have stated that they are using Internet Explorer, so one workaround has been suggested that users try using Chrome or Firefox until the issue is fixed.

2. We have also found that using the Browse button on the HTML side of the post editor works for the image upload, and then users can click over to the Compose side to move the image, resize it or add captions. NOTE: You want to do all the uploading at once because flipping back and forth between Compose and HTML repeatedly in one post can mess it up at times.

I couldn't find the 'choose files' box so Nigel suggested try the 'Compose or HTML' Photos were uploaded on HTML. Many thanks for the suggestions. How did you get on Nick?
