Hi Its me;;... I found pictures to upload but whenI click on upload it dosen't accept''' and whenI click start upload. I just get the beep...meaning it is not workable....?

I have a different picture of what's going on, so I'd like to offer my Answer to this:

Since you are uploading image(s) to craigslist website, I presume you are posting an ad, on that website, in which you wish to include (or which you want to be made up of) image file or files.
Craigslist terms may or may not prohibit some things, or uploading images in some categories, but if you were posting an ad in e.g. computers area, you would
a. Click on the Post link at the upper right of the category's screen
b. Select a category (which must be specified even if you came from e.g. the computers category area
c. Select an area (at least in the washingtondc craigslist, which is what I use, and which serves 3 'state' areas
d. Get a form with the entries for Posting Title: and Price: and Posting Description: ....etc. ready to be filled out. Below the big empty box for Posting Description:, scrolling down, you would find
e. ...A button titled Add / Edit Images .... click once on that button and, scrolling down the page again, you will get 4 big red X s and four Add: entries with Browse buttons to their right.
f. Click on one of the Browse buttons, for instance the upper left one.
g. You will get a File Upload window, which shows your own computer's file areas.
h. Use normal methods to go to the folder that contains the image you want to put on craigs list in your ad (e.g. click on My Computer to the left, then on C: Hard Drive, then on folder names in the path until your image file shows up.
( Note: you mentioned Albums.... you cannot publish Album files on craigslist, I'm pretty sure. Only image files: JPG, JPEG, GIF, or BMP most likely. But I'm not quoting craigs list rules on that, just my common sense.)
i. Double-click on your image file, in the File Upload window (or click once on it to select it, then click the Open button... in either case the File Upload window disappears and you ought to have a green circle in place of the red X, next to the Add: entry (now filled) and the Browse button you clicked.)
j. Add the other 3 images similarly, by repeating steps f., g., h., and i. (if you have up to 3 more images to put in the ad), then fill in entries for the ad above and click the Continue button at the bottom.... and continue with the process of getting your ad posted.

(If this is a workable answer to your question, by all means click Accept for it, to let me and the system know that it worked for you OK. If not, reply letting me know what went wrong in some details. Thanks.)

A-OK. I'm not in a hurry for you to try my advice. I am sure it will still be good advice if it waits a few days :-)
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Iam truly sorry but I donot accpt....... there was/is a way to load pictures directly from Picasa'.. It is much simpler and faster so I feel the answer you gave me though workable was not the answer I was hoping for.I have since learned how to do this; So I do not accept... I feel that I should not have to pay for information I willnot be using'''
Expert:  Russell H. replied 8 years ago.
I regret to hear that. My advice was good, I am sure, as far as applicability to what I was asked went. Reviewing the entire case I don't see any reference prior to your last post, to your problem being with Picasa - nor have you mentioned that you have Picasa software. So I gave you a generally applicable methodology, and my Answer was to your Question.

In general I don't insist on being paid. It is not in accordance with the policies of this website as far as I know.
