One degree of separation

Beautiful sunny clear autumn day today in great state of Washington. My folks and I drove to Birch Bay to look at the water, which was a stunning blue color.

I was going to post some pictures, but I got this message from Blogger:

Whoops! You're out of space. You are currently using 100% of your 1 GB quota for photos. Upgrade 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   I will probably buy storage, if I must, but I have to think it over first.   Meanwhile, here's a link to a Facebook photo album, which includes the photos I was going to post here.

Jan, I don't know if you'd want to go through this, but what I do is put all my photos on Smugmug, one place, and then use them from there. They have a "get a link" feature that lets you embed the actual photo into your blog, while still storing it in Smugmug, and also a "publish to Facebook" feature to send them to FB. This way I upload the photos just once to one place. It works well for me.

I just checked to see if Facebook gives you a way to embed photos from there, but it doesn't look like it.

Oh, forgot to say you do have to pay for Smugmug. There are a few different levels. But it's a reasonable price and I think well worth it for the convenience.
