Cannot Upload Picture - Internal Error

For our third wildfire this month (and today being the 4th of the month yet!), we have a problem with Blogger, and Post Editor. When trying to upload a picture, the blogger sees
This image could not be uploaded due to an internal error.

One blogger reported seeing this error after installing a Pyzam template. From the volume of the posts in the forums, I don't think that's the only defining factor.

Some questions might be relevant, though. Answer as much as you can manage, please.
  • Does the blog have a Blogger standard, or third party, template?
  • Does the blog have a Classic or Layouts template?
  • Are you in Draft (Blue), or Standard (Orange) Blogger, when you see the error?
  • Has this blog ever been customised using Draft (Blue) Blogger? If so, what changes were made?
  • Are you using Page Elements, or Post Editor, when you are trying to upload?
  • What browser (name and version) are you using?
  • What operating system (name and version) are you using?
  • What security programs or devices (anti-virus, for instance) do you use to protect yourself?

Hi, I'm having the same problem, and would love any info you have on it.
I was just trying to switch banners in my header, and I deleted the old, and tried to upload a new one. The new one is the exact same size as the old. I'm receiving the following error:
This image could not be uploaded due to an internal error.
I'm using a standard blogger template
I'm not sure what draft or standard blogger means, but the screen is blue as opposed to orange.
I'm using Firefox.
Windows XP Pro
Microsoft Security Essentials and Super Anti-Spyware.

Now that the first header was deleted, I am not able to even upload the old one. There's just a blank space at the top.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot upload either, but it doesn't say "internal error". Yesterday I changed to "Blogger-in-draft" which means the dashboard has changed. The upload window looks very different, too.

Sorry. I panicked. Now it works. It was a momentary error, but since it coincided with that change in the dashboard, I was afraid the novelty was not yet free of bugs, and since I am in Spain, Google explanations on how to fix things come to me in Spanish -- l√≥gico, ¿no?

Adding A Link To Your Blog Post

Occasionally, you see a very odd, cryptic complaint I just added a link in my blog, but the link vanished! No, it wasn't your imagination.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.
