Okay, has anyone else noticed that your thumbnails have been disappearing from your blogroll? I noticed this, but I had no idea how to change it. In order to make sure that your thumbnails are appearing on other people's blogrolls (pretty important for visual artists, isn't it???), you are going to have to go in and *gasp* edit some html on your blogger entries. Google and blogger changed something, so now we have to kind of hack around it to get it to work. Sigh.
Here's what you do:
1. After you have uploaded your photo, click on the "edit HTML" tab at the top of your Blogger post editor (it is the blue writing next to the "Compose" tab:
2. The HTML editor looks like a whole lot of code. If you normally post your photo first in any entry, look in at the top of the code for something like similar to:
a href="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-N5iFpayGPBk/TW-WpTbryYI/AAAAAAAAA3A/B0GxbXxQyhQ/s1600/sh13.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"
This type of code is for an image. Here is what that screen will look like:
3. In two places you will see a web address listed for your image. When you upload a photo from your hard drive, it is then hosted on Picasa. That is the web address that you see in your screen. In two place in that top code, you will see an address similar to this one:
You will want to change the parts that I have highlighted in RED to the following:
4. So, in short, go into the html editor, and change the web address of your source photo from https://....googleusercontent.com... to http://....ggpht.com...
Hope that helps, it is working for me!
