Are you getting any error messages?

Try going to the Members Gallery>my albums (on left hand side of banner at the top of your screen). This will give you a list with the album name on the left and an action column on the right, Click on upload photos and in the nest screen you can press a browse button to navigate to your image(s).

Please note that there is a size limit of 1000 pixels on the longest side and no more than 300kb file size or the gallery software will not accept the image.

Windows Photo Gallery is really no more than a storage application with some very basic features. It will not resize images.

There are many proper editing programs available and you can usually get the older versions reasonably cheaply - from around 20. The most popular is probably Adobe Photoshop Elements. However, there are a couple of free programs you might want to look at. Picasa from Google is one. This allows you to both catalogue and edit your pictures, but I've never used it so cannot really say more than that. I have and do use Faststone Image Viewer (but not for editing) which is also free (although you will be asked for a voluntary donation) and does give you some very useful features.

A word of warning. If you decide to do any editing or re-sizing remember to 'save as' at the end of your changes and save with a different file name and into a different folder otherwise you will over-write the original image which will be lost forever. Treat your originals like gold dust and regularly back them up.
