how to make photo album on this site

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I cannot make the photo album work for me. I sent a message the other day to "report an issue" but haven't heard back. I also checked other forums. When I drag the photo to the box as indicated, the photo shows up in my browser, taking the place of the MGN page. There's no save button just a blank browser page with the photo. I've tried this in Firefox and Safari with the same results. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry, I didn't receive your issue report.

I don't believe the Network allows "drag and drop" uploading. To create a photo album, first upload one or more photos by clicking on the icon here. Once the photos have been uploaded, you should be presented with a page where you can add titles, descriptions, etc., and choose whether to add the photos to an existing album or create a new album.

Chris -- thank you for this direction, I didn't fully realize that every post comes to you  : )  anyway, it worked like a charm. I wonder why the blog was showing me the drag and drop thing but it doesn't matter now. Can you tell me how to get directly to the page you linked me to? If not, I'll just return to this post and use the link. Thanks once again. Gayle

Sure, just click the "Photos" link at the top of the page, and then click the "Add" button.

Okay, now I understand. To create an album from photos already uploaded you can go to the albums page and then click the "Add" button. That gets you to this page, where you can drag uploaded photos into albums. But it appears that you can't drag photos from your computer into an album. They have to be uploaded first.
