Can't upload photos

Any ideas?
I've got a Flickr account and a Myspace account. I've tried to follow the instructions and it doesn't seem to work. I've tried to drag images across, copy and paste, type in the link.
How do they do it?
Any help would be good.
Cheers Jerry

    The pic file must end in .jpg

    Right click on the actual pic and see if the direct image link is better.

    Assuming you mean you are trying to upload some images into your Flickr account then just log in and follow the link to the upload page: http://www.flickr.com/help/photos/ ....and navigate to where your pictures are stored on your computer.

    No need to download and install any type of 'uploading tool' from them.

    is that what you are trying?

    you need the image properties or location

    right click the image to get the top text and put it between the img tags.

    quote this post to see.

    Ah, you mean-
    Right click on your selected image; the small "Elements Properties" will pop up; copy the "Location" address. After, go to your Bike Radar message board and paste the "Location" address in to the space where your message is to be written.
    Highlight the message address and then press the "Img" button/toggle above the text window (next to the blue "Close Tags" icon.
    This will automatically bring up two IMG icons before and after your highlighted "Location" address in the text window.

    Write messege a few lines below this and press "Submit".

    And..BINGO! Image appears on screen.

    Myspace has got a facility where you can resize photos if the image is too big or small.

    Phew!! That took a few days to suss out; I am a dozey bike rider though.
