Blogger Updates Add Images Function


Without any announcement, let along placing the feature in Blogger Draft prior to launch, Blogger made some much needed improvements to its Add Images function this week.  In a nutshell, Blogger now allows you to upload and insert multiple images from your computer, select photos you’ve previously used on your blog, access photos from your Picasa photo albums and insert photos via URL link.

Here are some screen shots of what is available:

Blogger Add Images - Your Computer

Upload allows you to locate multiple image files on your computer and insert them to your blog post.

Blogger Add Images - From This Blog

From this blog displays the images you’ve already used in your blog with the oldest images appearing first. You will need to scroll to the bottom of the screen to view the latest images you used on your blog.

Blogger Add Images - From Picasa Web Albums

From Picasa Web Albums is a neat feature especially if, like me, you have more than one blog running on the Blogger platform.  You can access all your Picasa albums from this screen and insert images from those albums.

Blogger Add Images - URL

From a URL is not a new feature. You can still insert an image – “link” to an image, actually – using a URL. Blogger has simply moved this function to its own screen.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
