Welcome! As "Annie in Austin" I blog about gardening in Austin, TX with occasional looks back at our former gardens in Illinois. My husband Philo & I also make videos - some use garden images as background for my original songs, some capture Austin events & sometimes we share videos of birds in our garden.
Come talk about gardens, movies, music, genealogy and Austin at the Transplantable Rose and listen to my original songs on YouTube. For an overview read Three Gardens, Twenty Years. Unless noted, these words and photos are my copyrighted work.
Our technical support person suggested that I save the problem photos as a png file and then try to upload them again. I used Adobe Photoshop Elements to save them in the new format and them uploaded them over here.
The zinnias came out in the right direction.
And so did the Cherry pepper photo. The size of the photo is slightly larger than a jpg. It doesn't explain what happened but it might work as a fix.
EDIT July 4, 2010: In the comments I said "Tech support thinks that blogger is reading some embedded information incorrectly". This theory seems to have been true - my husband disabled a facial-recognition setting inside the camera that autorotated pictures to make faces look "right". Guess it was seeing fruits and flowers as faces in group photos. Human faces are longer rather than wider, but Flower Faces frequently are broader rather than long. So far it's worked!
