Without any announcement, let along placing the feature in Blogger Draft prior to launch, Blogger made some much needed improvements to its Add Images function this week. In a nutshell, Blogger now allows you to upload and insert multiple images from your computer, select photos you’ve previously used on your blog, access photos from your Picasa photo albums and insert photos via URL link.
Here are some screen shots of what is available:
Upload allows you to locate multiple image files on your computer and insert them to your blog post.
From this blog displays the images you’ve already used in your blog with the oldest images appearing first. You will need to scroll to the bottom of the screen to view the latest images you used on your blog.
From Picasa Web Albums is a neat feature especially if, like me, you have more than one blog running on the Blogger platform. You can access all your Picasa albums from this screen and insert images from those albums.
From a URL is not a new feature. You can still insert an image – “link” to an image, actually – using a URL. Blogger has simply moved this function to its own screen.
