Wordless Wednesday & Mom needs help

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!
I hope you have the best day ever!
I know it is 'wordless' Wednesday but I had to tell her!

Note from Mom:
I've spent over an hour trying to upload a video, first with Blogger then I signed up for a Photobucket acct. That is not including trying to edit a video for the first time. I'm a bit frustrated and now you are stuck with another photo of Twix napping....sorry.

Now, what do I need help with? Glad you asked!
I have been perusing some blogs and gathering photos for our Ladies' Night and I can't save them to my computer for some reason. Actually, I can save them to my computer but I can't open them and the icon looks like a sheet of paper with a Windows window on it. I am having the same problem with the images that were emailed to me.
If this makes any sense to anyone can you offer any hints? Thanks!
Hopefully I get this figured out in time to peruse for photos again!
Needless to say, I have had a very unsuccessful evening and did not take time to read/comment. UGH!

there are NEVER enough photos of twix napping! she's so cute! I am not sure what the photo DL problem is. Are you saving them with the .jpg extension? For the movies, are you using Windows Movie Maker? If so, make sure you are uploading the saved movie file, not the movie project. There is an option - save movie file...

I remember having problems with my first blogger upload attempt and somehow this page helped me. If that doesn't help, you might consider opening up a youtube account and putting your video there because youtube can generate the HTML you need to paste into your post. I am not familiar with photobucket enough to know if it offers a similar solution. Good luck!

Don't you just hate it when the computer refuses to obey. I think you should take it for some training classes. That is what mom did for me when I was a pup. NOW I am very well behaved. hehehe
Loved your picture. Happy Birthday to Grandma. Give her some special licks. I am sure she will LOVE that.

Happy Birthday to Grandma. We seem to have missed ladies night but be sure to count us in!
We have had bother lately with loading videos to blogger - the best method is You Tube although when it is only a little clip we feels it is a bit of a waste but given blogger no longer working for us either......
These things are sent to try us......

Happy Birthday to Grandma!!!

I wish I could help you with your photo issues... is your browser properly configured to load pictures?

I too have had problems with the video thingie on Blogger: it's really hit and miss... and very "miss" when the video is a longer one.

Hi Twix,

Mom can't figure out what the picture problem could be. Gmail is pretty straight forward when it comes to saving attachments. Sorry we can't be more helpful.

Weekends are great for napping!

Wags & wiggles,

We love any and ALL pix of the beautiful Twix!
I wish mom knew more about computers and could help you - but she doesn't have any ideas of why it's not working! :(
Love,

I love all pics of Twix! :)

I wish we could help you with the computer stuff, but mom does not know much about computers. That's why my bloggie is so plain.

Nothing wrong with ANY Twix pix!

As fur troubles, we khan't really say what to do BUT as The Basset Babes mentioned, sometimes YouTube is the easier choice - we recently upgraded to Photobukhket Pro since Mom needed more storage space - that has been a benefit to us fur now we khan upload larger videos -

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Happy Birthday to your grandma!!!

Hugz&Khysses,

Happy Birthday to your Grandma, Twix. Are you dreaming about her and a piece of her cake? Sometimes blogger videos work for us and sometimes they don't. We have been using YouTube lately and it works pretty well. As for the images, are they being saved to your computer as .jpg files? Not sure what you have done, but we usually just drag a pic we like to our desktop and then upload it from there or else right click on the pic and then click on save image as and save it as a jpg file on your computer. Hope that helps.

Woos, the OP Pack

Happy Birthday to your Grandma.

We use YouTube. It works ok for us, but sometimes it doesn't like our choice of music and will mute the audio.
Love Ruby & Penny

Hi, Twix!
Happy Birthday to your Grandma! I hope she had a pawesome day!
You look adorable in that picture!
We wish we could help your mom with the videos and pictures problem, but my mom has no idea how! She uses YouTube and never edits the video!
Hmmmm...
Kisses and hugs

Blogger strikes again! Wish I had some ideas to help you, but mom has some of the same problems sometimes. Usually she can get things loaded, but the videos take FOREVER!! Hang in there, hopefully fate will smile on your posts soon!

I hope your grandma had a happy birthday Twix.

We like to see you napping, I hope you didn't wrinkle your dress though.

As far as the computer problem, we have no idea, blogger gives us problems to.
But as far as editing we use picasa or photo bucket.
