I filled out the information for Craigslist to sell a truck on that site. When I try to upload (8) photos from Picasa, it asks for a file name to do this.  The only file name to come close to this was CIMG0440.jpg, and it reported "not valid" or "path does not exist."  Can anyone suggest what I should do to get these photos or even one of them uploaded to the ad?  I am "computer stupid", for want of a better word, but can follow instructions if clear enough, as I have recently from you folks, with excellent results.


Thank you for your help.

Have you tried copying or downloading the photos back from Picasa onto your own computer and then attaching them - from your own computer - to the Craigslist advert ?


I suspect Picasa is looking for the filename of your Craigslist advert, which will be a web address. A file that ends with extension .JPG is an image file. Another place to try for help is from Craiglist's own FAQ section. I have never used Craigslist, but I presume they have one and they should be able to tell you how to get images attached to an advert you are planning on running on their web-site.
