Photos, Deleted From Your Phone, May Vanish From Your Blog

We see some blog owners reporting loss of photos, when used in their blogs, and added using Post Editor.

Some blog owners take photos using their camera / phone, upload them to Google+ Photos, and publish their blog posts. Having published their post, they remove the photos from their phones, to save storage space.

And once deleted from their cameras / phones, their photos vanish from their blog.

Cameras and phones, which automatically synchronise with Google+, also synchronise deletions.

When a photo is deleted from a camera / phone, and the camera / phone is set to synchronise with Google. the photo will also be deleted from the Google+ Photos / Picasa photo library. And being deleted from Google+ Photos / Picasa, the photo will cease being visible, when the blog is displayed.

If you wish to synchronise your camera / phone with Blogger / Google+ / Picasa, you should ensure that you treat camera / phone photo storage as permanent - not temporary - for photos used in your blog.

You can delete unused photos. with the understanding that what is deleted from your camera / phone will also be deleted from Blogger / Google+ / Picasa. Photos used in your blog, however, must remain on your camera / phone, to remain in Google+ / Picasa, and display on your blog.

Alternately, disable automatic photo synchronisation, upload photos manually, and maintain all photo libraries separately.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
