This is getting pretty crazy
I follow the instructions..I click on upload, and an entire screen of the picture of the desktop appears.

It's not in a box. I can't type in it, and there's no "submit button
This happens time after time...
I have no idea what to do

How big is it? Is there anything else on screen? If not, how do you get out of it?

I can upload the screenshot of the desktop (with no apps open) but I can't navigate to "places"
I don't think it matters, because the screenshot is the same picture of the desktop shown in the other directory.

I understand that I'm as exasperating as I am exasperated, but I'm trying to follow the directions..although I have no idea of the purpose of showing you a picture of the desktop with no apps open.

How can you upload something with no apps open? Do you know what "upload" means?

What does "places" have to do wit this? Do you really think that the only way to get a file is to drag and drop it from a file manager or the desktop?

I thought that the screenshot had apps open?!?

Anyway, when you have no apps open and press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard, does a screenshot appear in your desktop?

Yes, the picture appears...I was told at one point to navigate from "places" to the desktop directory.
I was of the impression that what (whomever) was asking for, was a picture of the desktop...

If you have a window open, does it obscure any panels that are along the edges of the screen? If not, then it doesn't make any difference, and seeing the widnow without the buttons only gives us more info.

Also, explain how you take the screenshots. Is it possible to take one when there's a window open?

1. Um...I'm sure you can see the humor in that question..I don't mean to be a wiseguy. In some cases I have no task bar at the top of the screen...I guess that's what you mean by panels...
If I was a wiseguy, I'd say..how can I tell?

To take a screenshot, I press the "Prt Scr" button which is the rightmost of the three at the top of the keyboard..I then press save to save it to the desktop

If you can not open up your home folder ( the same way as on winsdows xp,vista,7 )

can you on windows open up the "Programs Files" folder ?

if not you might want to go back and use Microsoft windows .

I can open my home folder..what's your point?
I've been following so many instructions..it's somewhat confusing.
Opening the home folder is not a problem..
What to do once I open it seems to vary from poster to poster..
If you follow the entire thread, you'd see that.

there is nothing confusing
gnome works the same as windows explorer in this matter
you open a folder and navigate about the same as on xp or vista ( win7 ios a bit different)

to copy on windows
r- click and select "copy"

to copy on linux
r- click and select "copy"
-- the same --

--- if gnome desktop ---
is there a left pane on the home folder ? or just one window
if one
edit the preferences
that is very very well documented in any of the Ubuntu user guides
read them !

if KDE

some what the same from where the windows "start" is there is a navigation menu

@John VV

How does navigating to the file in a file manager help the OP attach it to a forum post here?

the same mechanism is used to find the image and add it to to upload list
the SAME for "imagebam " the one i like

-- this sites upload ---
http://www.imagebam.com/image/bcf33a141016031
then navigate to the image
http://www.imagebam.com/image/733615141016035

it is the same mechanism

and IS THE SAME on windows , Mac osx and any flavor of Linux

if you can do it on windows then you can do it here !

if , though , you can not do that on windows then do not try Linux or mac. Stay with the mindless point and ONLY click ( and "say "yes" to everything ) that is Microsoft
