I need HELP, please.

Can anyone tell me HOW to add this photo to my side bar? I removed the other picture, and now I cannot repost. I have followed all instructions, but when I go to  layout and design, the box where I would add a gadget has a border of broken lines, (dot-to-dot) and when I try to load the photo I get an exclamation point inside a spinning circle. I am getting very frustrated after three days of trying to no avail. Thank you to anyone who can offer a suggestion.

This is a super, super picture, Linda!!! Sorry, I am not help with Blogger. I never change anything as I fear messing it up. I have found that waiting helps...or shutting down whole computer and bringing back up....the usual strange fixes. Have you looked for help on the discussion boards?

I too don't take any risk in changing the items. Will have a look and come back to you!

Linda--I've never encountered that problem. I add things all the time, and never have a problem, so I can't help you with the dotted line and the spinning circle/exclamation mark.

It IS a stunning photo. I'm sure someone more tech-savvy than me (like a three-year old kid) will be able to assist you.

Gosh, Linda, wish I could help you but I'm so non-techie that it's not funny.

When I'm stumped, I usually ask my daughter (or any young person) for help.

It's a great photo! Hope you can get it onto your sidebar. Love that you can see the water in the background!

Good luck. Susan

Hi Linda,

I have sent my suggestion to fix this issue to your Yahoo email id, please have a look at it and let me know if you need any further assistance.

I love your picture Linda . I too have similar top.

I will think about your problem as I have had many problems like that and it has rectified itself.

Shutting down and back on. If I can explain it to you. Then I will be back.

If your picture is too large. It will go around and around. Go back in and down size your picture. These formats are very finicky.

I belong to a garden site. I had that happen to me. My picture was too large. Over at my site they have a sizer . That is one solution.

I do hope you are able to get there because it's a great shot~

It sounds to me like you are doing everything right. I agree with the suggestions above about restarting everything. You might want to clear your cache of everything too and see if that helps. A lot of times if you wait a few days and then try again, Blogger gets straightened out and works right. It's a lovely picture. I hope you can get things to work for you.

Great photo! I am totally unhelpful on matters of this nature, however. But I can empathize with your frustration! My blog posts no longer post links, as they used to do, in my posts. Dunno why.
So I am using my usual strategy of doing nothing about it and waiting to see if it fixes itself. That's how I "fix" technological issues, because understanding them is not in my wheelhouse of strengths. :/

I'm sorry I can't help. It is really a nice photo of you, though.

No idea. I used to be able to do those things, but it's been so long and blogger changes so much so often, i wouldn't be game to try now.

I got your picture to appear on my blog (on the sidebar). My offer still stands - we can meet somewhere and figure this thing out.
