I have been asked to help in explaining how to post from Fotki....this is not an end all be all, but rather how I have been doing it with out fail since I signed up with Fotki.

If your on the fence about Fotki, I would suggest taking advantage of the 30 day FREE trial being offered by Fotki.

First you will need to create an album for your pictures....either scroll down and use the control panel on the Left or click on "Create new album" at the bottom Left corner of the page.
Fotki will automatically name it "My first album"

I am going to use my "Fotki step by step" album as an example...
Click on to open the album that you wish to down load from your PC (pictures, files etc.) into.

There are many options on this page...one of them is a click and drag that is not pictured that, as I recall, I had some issues with at first...what I use is the one file at a time...has worked perfectly for me with posting pictures on this website.

Click on Browse ...this takes you back into your computer files where your pictures are kept.

I opened the file that is in pictures from my computer...I then select the file name (picture) that I want to down load into Fotki and click Open

Once you have selected and opened the file (picture) you now have the option of either Upload and Return to Album or Upload and Add Another Photo....if you make a mistake and chose the wrong upload ,simply click on the album name located just below your Fotki acct.name and it takes you back to the album.

O.K so you have some pictures that you would like to share with the rest of us...here is how you post out of Fotki to this site.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR MAC USERS...IMPORTANT
Been working with Lefturns75 on getting his acct. to work as it should....he has been getting a "Failed to Copy" message when trying to post a picture....he runs a Mac.
Macs and Windows are different....Mac uses its own operating system and everyone else uses Windows or Linux. For Mac users you will need this program to share pictures from Fotki.

From the Fotki website:https://help.fotki.com/414/

7.5.2 Choosing Upload Method

PictureSync. Perfect for Mac users. Requires OS X 10.3+, and optionally iPhoto 4+ or iView MediaPro 2.6+. You can download it from PictureSync site.
