The following article explains how to add pictures to MySpace. The process itself is not overly complicated and everyone should be able to follow the steps. Please leave a comment if you have any questions about the process.
There are basically two possibilities to add pictures to MySpace. The first is to upload pictures from a computer to MySpace. If you do it this way, you use the code that is displayed after the uploading finishes to add these to your MySpace profile or blog posts.The second option is to embed images directly that are hosted on other websites.
If you want to upload pictures directly to MySpace you need to know the requirements. Pictures may not contain nudity, violence, copyrighted material or other offensive imagery. The picture can have a maximum size of 5 Megabytes and has to be a jpg, gif, bmp, png or tiff.
The process to add pictures to MySpace is the following. You click on Profile > My Photos to load the photo album. The photo album displays pictures that have already been added to MySpace. It contains a link at the top to Upload Photos. A click on that link opens the form where you can add pictures to MySpace.
This is done by browsing the computer of the user for pictures. Holding the CTRL key makes it possible to add multiple pictures at once to the upload form.
A click on Next opens the next options window which gives the user the choice to upload the pictures to an existing photo album or to create a new one for those images.
A click on Upload uploads the pictures to MySpace. A progress bar is shown during upload. The next button leads to another optional menu where the pictures can be tagged. Tagging makes it easier to find the images later on but is not required at all.
All pictures are then shown in the MySpace My Albums menu.
A click on an image loads that image in higher resolution and displays two links to the image on the right side. The important link is entitled "Photo code: copy it to your profile". A click on Copy copies the code to the clipboard. This code can be pasted into the profile or blog post easily. Simply right-click the text area where you want to add the picture and select Paste.

The second option is to add pictures to MySpace that are hosted externally. Users can use image hosts like Imageshack to upload their images and paste them from there to MySpace. This has the advantage that the images can have a greater size than those posted at MySpace.
Imageshack posts all sorts of links to the image after uploading it to their service. A good choice are the thumbnail links at the top or the direct link at the bottom. Just click in the line that you want to use, right-click it and select copy. Then go to Myspace to add the picture and paste it there.
Make sure to test your page before publishing it to be able to correct errors that might have occurred.
