Figrat, not sure if I can help, but when you click on the green tree just above my message (third icon from the right) you get the following window:
You click 'select' and navigate to the file on your computer, and then click 'upload' . the file needs to be of a certain size in dimensions and bytes - I think 1 mb is the biggest - so you may need to downsize your file. Hope this is not a case of teaching grandma to suck eggs and you already know all this, and have a different problem that I have not helped with!!
Thanks for that Goldilocks, but the problem was that even with a .jpg file >1mB, I kept getting a message that the file was in the wrong format. At Daniel's suggestion, I've just tried the same procedure with a different browser (I used Safari) and it worked! So maybe an issue with IE8. Who'd work in IT?
