    I can't upload cropped, snap shot images to sites like www.tinypic.com and Facebook.

    'Upload Failed! Invalid format (jpg|bmp|gif|pcx|png|psd|tif)'

    Can you attach them here?
    Can you open them in Preview without problems?
    What Mac OS X version do you use?

    B explains how to use this forum's attachment feature: Attaching an image to your post

    The default format for screenshots is .png which is a pro-format not widely supported by fora etc. Convert pics to .jpg first.

    edit:
    What do you crop them with?

    Try appending the file extension to the cropped photo.

    i.e. Instead of "Picture 1", try "Picture 1.png" or "Picture-1.png"
