Temporary Work Around For Blogger Image And Photo Upload Problem

[Update: a Blogger employee said that the new editor is buggy, and that we must use the old editor, just as I suggest below]

Having trouble uploading images and photos to your Blogger blog entry? Feeling a little frustrated?

I found a way to do it. Honestly, though, I can't remember whose idea it was. We can use this temporary fix until Blogger/Google deals with it.

Before you upload, you go to your settings, and then select the old editor as your editor of choice. After your upload is complete, you save the blog entry, and then switch the setting back, and continue editing.

Here are the steps, spelled out a little more.
  1. Select the "Settings" tab, and then scroll down.
  2. Look for "Select post editor".
  3. Select "Old editor".
  4. Save your settings.
  5. Start a new post or edit the post that your were working on.
  6. Upload as usual.
  7. After your last photo upload is complete, save your work.
  8. As in step #1, return to the settings tab, and scroll down.
  9. As in step #2, look for "Select post editor".
  10. Select "Updated editor".
  11. As in step #4, save your settings.
  12. Continue editing your post.
Here are some tips.
  • In general, it is better to upload all your images at once.
  • When you upload your images, it might be useful to add some text before and after your image, before you save and continue your steps, because the updated editor doesn't allow you to add text after a photo, if there is no space between the image and the end.
  • As you edit your post, you may want to add new photos. Just repeat the process.
