A fellow blogger came up with this sneaky solution! Thanks Vero!
"I don't think so these people don't have time to spare for the little bloggers like us.. I found something out which helped me to solve at least a small part piece of the puzzle. I noticed, every photo of mine that was rejected as too big was shot with the the zoom. I went ahead and cropped the picture via the windows snipping tool. The cropped pictures are all accepted, but when I tried to use the original one... it was again rejected. So far I am good now and able to add the cropped pictures. It must have something to do with the MB of the original. Not sure if that is of help for anyone.
from Blogger. I have moved a ton of files off of Picasa
and I still get this message.

Is this Googles way of telling me "Happy Thanksgiving"???
