To upload non-jpeg files, like mpg, it looks like you have to use the Quick
Upload software, as per the help (below). I am not going to download it to
Help - Digital Photo File Types
Depending on the upload method you use, you can copy the following types of
digital photos from your computer to your online account:
JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg, .jpe)
Windows Bitmap (.bmp)
ZIP (.zip consisting of JPEG )
Videos must be in either MOV, AVI, 3gp or MPG (motion jpeg) format.
Any digital photo or video you upload must have an ending that matches one
of the above file types (e.g. niagarafalls.jpg, DC00145.tif) and regardless
of which type of file it is, the copy of it that you upload will be
converted to JPEG format before it's added to your account. When you upload
any digital photo to your online account, only a copy of it is placed in
your account. The original digital photo file remains unchanged on your
One-by-One Upload Method
JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg, .jpe) ZIP (.zip consisting of JPEG images )
JPEG is the only file format accepted for upload when you use the One-by-One
Upload Method. Any digital photo file you upload must end with .jpg, .jpeg,
or.jpe (e.g. niagarafalls.jpg, DC0023.jpe).You can not upload videos with
the one-by-one upload method; you must use the QuickUpload method.
When you upload a digital photo to your online account, only a copy of it is
placed in your account. The original digital photo file remains unchanged on
Tip: If you cannot see the last letters of your digital photo files, it
means that your computer is not set to display them. To change this setting,
return to your computer's desktop and double click on the "My Computer"
icon. Once the My Computer window is open, click on the "Tools" menu and
choose "Folder Options". Click on the "View" tab at the top of the window.
You'll see a list of items with circles or boxes next to them. Find the box
that is labeled "Hide file extensions for known file types". Make sure this
box is NOT checked. If it has a checkmark in it, click once in the box to
remove it. Click the OK button at the bottom to confirm your change. You
should now see the file extensions, or the letters of your filenames after
the "." when you are locating them on your computer.
