I want to upload some pics to a site like photobucket but it can't see my pics. Is it because I don't use a windows machine?

Or is there something really obvious that I'm missing?

I have registered, everything looks hunky dory, I've tried to upload my pics and it can see my files, it can see the folder that my photos are in, but when I try to open the folder, it appears empty.

The folder is not empty, there are some pics on my profile that I put on today that are the ones I am trying to upload to photobucket. Have tried picturetrail as well and the same thing happens.

Any ideas?

This is a unix computer, btw.

You can upload to photobucket by email, if that helps at all (although it doesn't answer your original question).

I don't care if I can't do it "properly", I just want to show my family my new chickens grin

thank you, I'll give that a go grin

What format are the pictures in?- I found out today that Picasa webalbum can't upload .bmp pictures - I had to change it to a .jpg

surprisingly, rusty, what you just typed made sense to a computer numpty like me grin

I did think of that and changed them to jpegs but it still couldn't see them.

I did wonder if they are too big, when I upload them to mumsnet it always tells me that my image has been resized before it lets me add it to my profile.

Anyway, do you like my chickens? grin

I particularly like Enid and Margaret - do they have feathery feet?
We used to have bantams with feathery feet; they always looked as if they were about to trip up....

yes, they do have feathery feet!

They're gorgeous aren't they!

I now have pics of my chooks on photobucket grin

And now I know how to do it, I'll put some better ones up...
