For Katie and Hank

Recently I got screwed by Photobucket and never shall I trust them again. They lost all my images and told me my account was "hacked". I suspect "hacked" now means, "Uhh, our server crashed and we lost your stuff. We'd like to blame some anonymous hacker. Please don't hate us!"

Grrr. Have I mentioned their support is slow and unresponsive? Extra grr.

Anyway, I uploaded my pics to Google's Picasa Web. My album is here.

My friend katiem00 asked me if I had ever posted any images from Picasa Web to my LJ. She told me that she had troubles and now relied on Flickr for her image posting needs. I uploaded pics to Picasa Web because I wanted my kitties back online and I didn't have to sign up for anything. Yay for a Google account, eh?

So, I'm going to try to post pics from my Picasa Web account here to see if I also have troubles. I hope not. The pics of my recently acquired Mah Jongg set are being posted for bs0d. He has a fabulous quality set made of bamboo and ivory. Mine is a much cheaper modern knock-off of the style of his. Not to say mine sucks, but it isn't in the same class as his set.

Now for the pics.

Edited to add: Okay the pics worked for a bit then disappeared when I refreshed. Therefore I'm going to try to link you to the album behind the cut. I begin to see the problem that katiem00 had.




Mah Jongg


Okay, I know one thing I don't like already. They have a "Link to Photo" option, but it resizes your image. I hate that with LJ's scrapbook. Granted Picasa gives you size options, but I had to right click the image to get the unvarnished link location. That kinda bites.

Other than that, I hope it works. I can see it in the preview, so here goes nothing.

Edited to add: Clearly it didn't quite work as I'd planned. Maybe the "link to photo" would have worked, but I hate the resizing! ARRG!
