MY NAIL ART PICTURES ARE GONE!!

Dear all, I've just opened my laptop and went to my blog and ALL MY NAIL ART PICTURES ARE GONE!!
I do not understand what is happening. I really don't.
My nail art posts are pictures less and the pictures I have uploaded even very old posts are without pictures. I am trying to understand why, whether it is a Blogger or Google+ malfunctioning or whether I've been victim of a hack, I couldn't tell.
I know trying to get Google or Blogger to respond to any claim is useless, their service is practically non-existent. So before I go and totally panic, I'll just try to measure the damage and think about a way to repair it.
If any of you know what could have caused this or had a similar experience PLEASE help me! This is really terrible.
I will try and upload again all the pics for the most recent posts while I try to go on with my future posting schedule and as I go I'll try to keep uploading the older pictures, but it won't be easy and it will take ages!
Gosh, why am I so unlucky!! If anyone can think in a word of blogging-comfort, this is the time. I'm really upset right now.
Of course I would take any advice on how to fix this, because I'm such a noob on these matters.
I hope this will be solved soon.

Love,
Nati

PS. right now I'm so, so upset!

  1. I have not seen this before :-| Usually it's all the photos and not just one topic or theme :-|

    I know I had issues before and always keep backups of my all my photos I've posted. And more recently I've been keeping the raw photos too. I stopped using blogger and use Photobucket to link my photos to my blogs. That was mainly because I had gone over my limit and sometimes blogger had issues back then - couple years ago - but I think that was just a few bugs!

    It's weird because the photos are showing okay in the "You might also like" part.

    Have you reported the issues? Or checked the forums? I know when I had issues, I always checked there and sure enough lots of others were having the same issues.

    Sorry I can't be of more help but I can give you a big virtual hug *HUG*.

  3. That's frustrating - but I really think you need to report it. It looks like others have the same problem if you use the search words photos gone in the help forum...

    2. Oh Maria So so nice of you to care to search for me! I have checked those links but unfortunately didn't help. I will keep searching but I have already manually uploaded the pics to my most recent nail art posts. Thank you sweetie!

  4. Such a horror! I´d recommend checking the forums, too, but other than that I don't have much advice.

  8. AAaaaah! A nightmare! I feel you!! (By the way, the pictures seem normal to me, each post I've looked through has at least four pictures – maybe it's working out already?)

  9. Oh no, Nati, I am soooo sorry that this happened and I can only imagine how horrid it is to have all your hard work disappear! I hope it will be resolved soon. :-(

    1. I think the issue has been resolved? I can see all your pictures are back. xx

    2. Oh no, Shreen, unfortunately the pics you see I have been slowly (and manually) re-uploading. Anyways it is only my nail art pics, no my makeup, or other products, because I kept my nail art pics in a Picasa album in Google photos, and I guess something was wrong but can't figure out what :(
      thank you for caring, xoxo

    1. Diana, gracias por preocuparte, la verdad que tengo igual el backup de todas las fotos pero volver a poner todo toma muchísimo tiempo y apenas si tengo tiempo de ir escribiendo sobre la marcha!

    1. I hoped I could find an easy way to repair it, but it seems that only uploading manually one by one again is the only solution, so I'll take it patiently :-/

    1. Thank you Melissa! But don't worry I'm not really freaking out. Well I was pretty upset when I found out, mostly disappointed but now.. well I checked all possibilities and all I can do is upload the pics again, one by one. It'll take a while, but what can you do?
      It was better if this didn't happen, but again, what could you expect from Blogger, right? Luckily I already had all my pics backup on google photos, online, so I only have to link to them from the blog, but that will take a while because I need to edit my posts one by one :(

  15. Nati, mi recomendación es que subas las fotos a flickr. Yo nunca confié en los servidores de Blogger para hostear las fotos. Un abrazo desde Venezuela.

  16. It is horrible, I can immagine how much patience you need now, to upload all the photos... I hope you feel better after the first horrible moments...

  17. No sé si las pudiste recuperar... pero estuvieron haciendo cambios en los sistemas. Migraron las fotos desde G+ a google photos y quedo medio medio. Incluso reporté varios bugs y directamente ahora las manejo desde picassa web, just in case... y desde ahí se ve todo bien.
    Besos!
