Photos recovered

I visited my computer man this morning and after an hour's fiddling between his pc, his laptop, and my iPad we have managed to restore the photos to my blog. The photos were contained in a file on Google+ . Why they were wiped out in the first place I will never know.

I can't explain how all this was achieved because we went through so many trial and error exercises, but the essence of the problem was related to flagging photos or albums as private or public. That may sound elementary but nothing about Google+ is user friendly, and the fact that it took my computer man an hour to sort bears that out.

I just want to be sure that I can still insert pictures from my Mac in the same way I did before all this Picasa/Google+ nonsense, so here goes.

I hope to be off with this again within the next few days, albeit with a lighter load physically and mentally. Watch this space.

Thanks to all who have sympathised and made suggestions through this unpleasant problem.

I echo the above comments - I've been looking at SmugMug and Flickr - trying to decide how to go forward.

Please to see that you're considering heading off out again!

I am relieved your efforts are not wasted -

his brain allows one half-formed thought to pass:
“Well now that’s done: and I’m glad it’s over.”

so I'm sure you are glad your new journey will be unburdened by regret for some fateful error -
which an age of prudence cannot retract!

whatever it is or was, it is still 'amazing' that it happens at all, so easily, and to so many, not just a few!

You deserve a good journey and happy wanderings.

I can only echo what the others have written, especially gimmer's last line.
