Has anyone had "this" problem?

Blogspot is going to be my downfall. I swear. Now when I want to post a new blog, there is nothing on the new post site that allows me to post photos. What the heck is going on?

The other thing that drives me nuts (which is a short trip) is that when I read another blog and want to comment, if they have "word verification", there is no word.
What the heck is going on?

The only way I can post photos is if I start the blog from Picasa where photos I've taken are stored. However if I scan a photo in using photoshop, I don't know how to get that to Picasa.........I hate to admit I'm such a computer dummy, but, alas, I can do a lot of other things, but technical is not my area of expertise. Boy, that's an understatement.

If anyone out there has any answers, I sure would appreciate knowing how to resolve these "issues".

No, I haven't had your problem (yet). When scanning, go first to Picassa and upper left corner is "import". Put in the device you are using to scan (assuming it is connected to your computer) and click on it. Follow directions from there. That should tell it to scan and then store it in Picassa.
When I load in a picture to my blog, it always looks like some kind of jibberish writing as I add text. But when I go to view it, the picture is there. Hope this helps.

I haven't had any of those problems. I have had a few "could not contact Blogger" notices lately though. Then all of my work is gone. Grrrr!

Ok you need to go into your blog guts lol and change a setting.
Go to your dashboard, then go to Settings, then click on the Basic button or it will just come up on that one. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page almost where it says "GLOBAL SETTINGS" there will be an option that says, "select post editor" in that area click on "OLD EDITOR" and then click on "save changes".
I just lately switched my blog over from the old template to the newer one and had the same problem so this is what I did. Doesn't mean it is the correct thing to do; but it works. I can now upload photos and video again.
It is quite easy, don't be afraid lol.
I don't have your email or I could send you a screenshot of what the page looks like, anyway hope this helps.
Hope this helps.
Islagringo: your work shouldn't be gone as Blogger automatically saves your work every few minutes. Your work should be saved as a draft in your posts page. It will either be saved under your title or as an untitled draft if you haven't yet typed in a title. Have a look and see if you have some drafts saved there.

Babs, when you create a new post are do you have the 'compose' tab selected or the 'edit html'? Make sure you are on compose to add links/pics/videos.

Thanks everyone for their advice and suggestions. I'll try them all. I'm packing to leave for Tx. so that will have to wait until my return.

I knew you fellow bloggers would have the answers. Mil gracias.

The "mystery" is solved. I'm in Houston using my friend's compouter and I can comment. I can upload photos. I can do all that I used to do - before I got Mozilla Firefox. You can rest assured when I get home, I WILL have the computer gurus put me back on whatever I was on before....whew, I'm not losing my mind.......that's a relief.
