stumped about drag & drop of the img files I downloaded

OK, so I downloaded the files and the img file and when opened it showed 12 files (facebook, twitter, numbers, etc. which are PNG or JPEG files) and a .DS_Store file which I know nothing about. My computer is a Windows 7 laptop. It won't allow me to drag & drop. If I highlight the files like it shows in the video, and then right click, I get the choice of Open, Explore, Cut, Copy, Delete, Properties.. I'm so frustrated I just emailed a friend that if I can't figure it out, I may just wait until he gets back from a trip next week and can come look at my computer. Does anyone have an idea?

Finally got them uploaded after about an hour of trial and error yesterday---one of the things I did was to delete the old files and then download again and start from scratch.

what uncompresser are you using? it could be 2 things.

  1. that the program that uncomprress your .zip to a folder is corrupted or 2. that the file you donwloaded is corrupted. the DS_Store is nothing just dont look at it

FIRST UNZIP THE FOLDER. try to drag each picture to the workspace and drop it in the bottom area that says "drop the files to upload" .
