Well, what are you trying to do? Show us the command you're typing.

Thanks Ambar. :) I am trying to upload photos to make a photobook through an online company. I have no idea what the command is. I thought I should just have to drag and drop the files to transfer them, then start the upload... ? LOL! I have no clue!!!

FTP is a command-line protocol, which will look something like this in use. It doesn't speak drag and drop. :)

Why don't you give us the URL of the photobook site where the instructions are? We can probably puzzle them out together.
