Hello WordPress People,
I just recently upgraded my Windows Live Blog (ShawnWasHeres.spaces.live.com) to WordPress (ShawnWasHere.WordPress.com)
What I found: Not all of my images were imported. Further, all the ones that were imported shrunk… a lot!
I’m not going to lie. When I first upgraded my blog to WordPress, I was very disheartened to find that all my images had been shrunk. On Windows Live, on average, my images were 1600 x 1200 and about 300 KB. At WordPress, they are 300 x 200, 15 KB. This is a huge difference!
I originally thought that maybe there is not enough room for all my images, in their original size, under the WordPress 3 GB cap. But, this is not the case.
While investigating this, I discovered a bigger issue. In the Windows Live Photo album that contains all my images from that blog, there are 367 images. In my WordPress media Library: 320. Uh oh! 47 pictures got lost.
I am now faced with the very daunting task of, over 87 blog entries, figuring out which 47 images are missing (yikes), and then manually replacing 320 images with a large version. I will never be able to fix all this …
I have my fingers crossed there is a solution to this? I would love to redo the upgrade and have all my images imported in the original size.
Thanks in advance for your time
The blog I need help with is shawnwashere.wordpress.com.
