Where Oh Where Did My Pictures Go?

Hello Dear Friends....Have you ever lost your pictures in your computer? Well, I have and it is paining me greatly! Just before Christmas I was playing around...never a good thing I am learning... with my computer. On my home page, with my screen saver I have several icons. One of those was Picasa 3. I never use it as I much prefer PhotoShop. I thought to myself, I wonder what all is in it, so I clicked on it. When it opened I saw many pictures I had not seen in a long time and then a window opened up and more pictures came whirling in. I did not think much about it, until.....I went to get pictures from one of my picture files in my documents and found it EMPTY! Horrors! So I went back to Picasa and found in the thousands, a picture here and a picture there from my one picture file. In this lost file were many images such as my banner for my blog...all gone. I had my computer guru come over and he said to me that they are somewhere in my computer....three hours later there still was no sign of them. So....I found instructions on creating my own blog banner and we will see if I can come up with something. It is time I learned to do my own designing, anyway! And, to put my pictures in files and then on disks....

So, while mulling this all over, here is what I have been up to these cloudy winter days since Christmas and tomorrow I think I will start taking down the Christmas decorations.....I always have to get used to the "bare" look when all is done and packed away.


This 2 1/2 cup teapot comes with it's own cozy, coaster and tea wallet full of yummy teas....You can see more pictures and details at THE RUFFLED ROSE

I am off to make myself half a turkey and cranberry sandwich while there is still some turkey! It is going to be ham for New Years.
Cozy Hugs,

Oh NO!! Don't you just hate it when your computer gobbles up everything and then hides it from you??!! I am sure you will find them when you least expect it and then be asking the questions, "where and how did that happen?" Good luck and just for the record, it's raining here too, Char

So sorry about your pictures I would have a heart attack! I need to go purchase an external hardrive, so everything could get back in. Karen my blog designer said that was the best way to go. I have enough tehie difficulties as it is as my brain isn't wired in that direction, just good at the handmade and visual stuff, hope it all get fixed up. Learning all these other skills take away from hans on creative skills. Happy New Year, Hugs Marilou

I don't know if this will make much sense but my son said when I can't find pictures to go to the run/search bar that comes up when you hit on the Windows ball( lower left corner of your desktop). Type in *.jpg* or *.png* depending on the type of pictures. It will ask location- Use C-local disk Then put in

It found the ones I thought were lost. Check it out before you try it with your techie. Hope it helps.

Yep...had that very experience and it is not pleasant. I keep thinking they will show up..but so far nothing.
Maybe your's will. If they do be sure and let us know what you did to get them back!
Hugs...and good luck! :)

Hi Jil, I think we have all had that problem at one time or another. I had down loaded some pictures thinking that they went to my picture file to find out that they didn't. It can be so frustrating. We have had a very foggy drizzly day here. We are at 50 degrees as I write you this note. Instead of going down, it is going up. Very Strange. I hope you have a wonderful Newyears Day. I love the pictures that you posted today. Your Missouri Friend.
