In a recent post, I lamented that pictures seem to disappear from my posts. I spent hours making sure I only had free pics in my published posts. (I might have found and used unauthorized pics I found online.)
I gave it a couple days, and photos were still being replaced by a message about missing attributes. Quoting myself, I was “freaking pissed.” At that point I decided I’d just have to use my own pictures, and recognized this was going to seriously impact production quality and relevance to subject matter.
Today, I googled about what was happening. Pretty quickly, I found my answer! If you delete a picture from your media library, it is no longer going to show in your post. So, I need to be more selective when I’m choosing because every photo will remain in my library, taking up storage space.
So glad I found the solution and the problem was just user error! 😏
