I have tried and given up trying to post photos before, and this time I really want to figure this out , because I posted a question in another thread and the lack of photos made it unanswerable.
I keep reading the instructions about what to do after hitting Upload An Image, but I'm not getting a file from which to chose a photo, just a list of all the folders on my computer. If I click on my photos folder, it looks like it is loading the entire folder into where just the single photo file should be.
I have tried opening my photo program in another window , then pasting the individual photo's link into where it asks for the file. This is not working.
I am SO SORRY to ask a question I know has been answered a hundred times, but if someone out there can discern where I'm going wrong, could you walk me through this?
Using Google Photos on Windows 10 PC. THANKS!
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

When I want to upload images I first move my image or images to a new folder and name it something like National Gardening Association. I then give each of the images (if there are more than one) a number and a name. Something simple like 1-Dandelion.

After that, I am ready to follow the prompts just as you have already tried, but this time I know to click on that one folder to open it, then select only one image and click to open it. Wait a moment or three and the image should load. I do not resize my images as NGA does that for me so my larger images take just a bit longer to load. I don't mind waiting.

Good luck and keep trying. It does get easier. Thumbs up

Thank you, Greene! Got my tech-savvy daughter to help, and it worked. I think the problem was a cloud-based photo storage program.
These are the photos I was trying to post: I know the lady bug eggs, it's the other "eggs" I was asking about. Or are those pregnant aphids popping out babies?
Thank you so much for your help.

Are you asking about the 3rd photo? I have no idea what it is other than it's amazing.

The middle photo is definitely ladybird eggs, the pupae are black when hatched but I think the 3rd photo could be the pupae.

Sue, you think? I haven't been able to find any reference photos of pupae that are round like that. I enlarged and lightened one of my photos...those are definitely black aphids near the "eggs" but I don't know if they're related in any way. I was wondering if they are from some sort of wasp...?

Glad you solved your image posting problem, Zoe. Those round things are aphids also, if you look closely you can see the two cornicles, "tailpipe" projections from their rear ends, as in this picture:
