Problems with blogging your images?

I'm sure some of you noticed in your last couple posts, that any image you blog now tries to download the file when clicking on the thumbnail instead of opening the larger version of that image in your browser. I'm not sure if blogger is aware of this but I looked through the new image code and found the following:

Before your thumbnail image would be sourcing from something like:

and linking to:

Now what your thumbnail links to is something like:

notice the difference in parent directory and the difference between s1600-h and s1600-R.
So what you need to do to get it back to the normal way is this:
In your 'edit html' tab of your blog post find the link following "src=" This will give you the proper parent directory (the letters/numbers just before "/s400"). Use this path in the link following "href=". Finally make sure you replace the s1600-R with s1600-h. Save and publish.

Illustration Friday: Excess

This illustration is dedicated to the boys who constantly hop our fence and swim in our pool. This happens quite often with several neighborhood children and I am usually okay with that as long as they show respect toward the property. There are a few regulars that like to use the pool, take of their clothes and occasionally throw all the lawn chairs into the pool. I drew the line when the day before Thanksgiving one decided to pee into the pool. The kicker is, on the next day they came back and swam in that same pool and I am certain the apt. staff did not clean the pool between that time. I figured that any pee in the pool is too much so it ought to fit this weeks topic.
