Trouble posting

Hi,
We are having trouble with photo storage and posting at the minute, which may lead to my blog closing.
For some reason i cant resize my photos which is taking up all my free space, so if i cant figure it out, i may end up closing the blog.
 
 
If any of you have any tips, please feel free to leave a comment, and do any of you pay for photo storage??.
