I want the old Blogger image uploader back.

Blogger have changed their image upload applet to a slightly more complicated one, which, besides offering alignment selection and the ability to select an image that is already on the web somewhere, adds all kinds of code that I really don't need:

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://www.domain.com/uploaded_images/filename.jpg"><img style="float:left; margin:0 10px 10px 0;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;" src="http://www.domain.com/uploaded_images/filename.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></a>

I don't like that it adds a link either, and that I can't specify a folder (it goes straight to "/uploaded_images").

Is there any way to get the old one back? I can’t find anything in the knowledgebase. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I could just use FTP, of course, but I liked the convenience of the old applet because it allows you to stay in the post editor while you're adding images.

The "Upload File" button, located directly to the right of the "Add Image" button, lets you pick a destination folder and does not add a link.

Speaking of the new Blogger, I've noticed that the line spacing on my blog has changed. The paragraphs are now much more scrunched up. Whereas before it seemed to be 1.25 or 1.5 spacing, now it's at single space. Does anyone know how to change the line spacing in the template? Thanks.

Thanks event, that's it. I guess I got a bit confused.

billysumday, in the template CSS there's usually something like this under "post":
.post {
Not sure if that helps but could tweak a bit and see how it works out.

You can add < _img src="_ "> tags to the Post Template. That way you do not need to add the image code everytime. Just add the url of the image on the post editor.
