I am running out of room

I have a question.
Where do you store your photos? Do you load them onto your computer and upload them?
Do you upload them to a hosting site?
Picasa is telling me I need to pay for more space, which I will likely do, but is that best way?
So, tell me, what do you do??

  1. Sissy, I load them onto my PC then upload just the ones for the post to the blog. I guess the uploaded blog pics go to Picasa album on line- but I haven't filled it up yet (at least they are not saying I did) but I'm sure I'll get there soon. The most I have problems with is filling up my hard drives. I had to get a second, larger drive just for my pictures.
    Can you delete unused pictures? This is still new territory for me. Good luck... :)

  2. I do the same as Lil's Garden (comment above) upload photos in a windows programme to the laptop and they transfer to Picassa for editing on the laptop but I only put the ones on the blog on the online album - well I assume that is where they go - and I've never been told there isn't enough space - not yet anyway! I back up the photos every month onto a separate hard drive as well:)

  3. I don't know much about all this either, Sissy. I uploaded all my photos to Picasa, because my hard drive was filling up, but then I was afraid if I deleted them from my hard drive, they'd be deleted from Picasa, too. I use an external hard drive for most of my photo storage, but one of these days that's going to fill up. If you find out an answer on the best way to store photos, I'd love to know.

  4. I bought the extra storage for Picasa. Well worth it. For $20 a year I got 81 gigabytes, and I am only using 5 gigabytes so far, for a couple thousand photos. There is peace of mind to know it will be years before I run out of storage, and I can blog away at will.

  5. I do pay, was it $10 for more room on Picassa and at home, my photos are on an external harddrive. And yes, I have started to go through them and delete. Ouch!

  6. @Lil's Garden Yikes. I can barely keep up with one hard drive, much less an external one. Jeff does one for family photos.

    I do know that the pictures on the Picasa will not go away if you delete from your hard drive..

  9. @Laurrie That's just what I did, Lauurie. That way they are stored online and I can use them anytime I want...

  10. I archive photos on CD's as .jpgs. We do this with all our photos, so we can delete them off the computer.

  11. I put them on my computer and only upload what I put in the blog. I always resize them so they don't take forever to load.

    You are out of space already? I have been blogging for 7 years and so far it's still free.

    What a great anniversary present you got. I hope it arrives soon.

  12. I hold a bunch of biz ones on an external usb memory stick - and I hold the rest on an external drive that we got from Sams Club....
