For those that may not know - blogger actually does have set amount of storage set aside for each blog - which means if you upload large photos (without resizing them) you are going to VERY quickly run out of space. Keeping them at 1000 x 750 pixels is perfect, they are big enough to see easily and do not take up a lot of space. With photo's this size you should be able to keep your blog going 5 or more years. Also when uploading videos - always do it through a second party such as You Tube. Loading video directly in blogger also takes up vast amounts of your storage.
Now we recently came across an awesome FREE little program that will resize your photos for you and do a either one at a time or a whole lot! We REALLY like that you can do a whole lot at once. (NOTE : It doesn't do fancy editing and isn't a paintshop or photoshop type editor - it just resizes photos for you.) The other great thing about this program is it can watermark all your photo's for you - this is like a hidden copyright. One more great thing - it keeps your original high quality photo and makes a copy into a smaller size and it is EASY to use.
The program is called Light Image Resizer 4 and it is free from here.
WARNING - Be very careful about reading the boxes as it installs - if you do not not untick the boxes it will install some other free software that you may not want and also the BING toolbar. Like I said - READ CAREFULLY before clicking the continue button. It is a bit of hassle we know - but the program itself REALLY is worth it if you spend about 30 seconds unchecking those boxes.
