At least, I think that's my problem. :unsure: :whistle:
So I want to upload pics from my phone to photobucket. I emailed myself the pics and if I click View then my email or whoever tells me that the pic is a jpeg.

Posted Image

This leads me to believe that I can upload to photobucket, except that photobucket doesn't recognize this pic as existing and my computer just sees this jpeg as a 'file'.

Posted Image

So I can't upload pic and I have no idea what to do. Please help me. And I'm totally sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. I don't understand my problem enough to know where to put it. :blush:
Thank you very much for reading!

What happens when you save and rename the file to (File).jpg

Hi Petewills!
Regrettably, I didn't even know I could do that until just now and I don't know how to do it. I will look this up and thank you for helping me! :thumbsup:

Just right click on the file on your computer, select rename from the menu and type filename you choose with a.jpg extension.

OMG! Thank you soo much. :wub:
I feel so stupid, because I renamed them last night but I didn't know that I'm supposed to add the file type. I thought the computer did that bit. :rolleyes:

You should be able to upload sweaterfront.jpg to Photobucket from your computer.

If you're talking about uploading direct from your phone, I haven't a clue; there's probably an app for it,
but I'm still in the dark ages with my Nokia 3310.

Glad you sorted it. :)
