    I am trying my first attempt at a simple slideshow but am unable to load the plugin through the 'add new' in the plugin section. I can and have loaded them via the file manager in cPanel.
    Unfortunatly when I try to upload images I get the folowing message:-
    Unable to create directory /home/a9693082/public_html/juniors/wp-content/uploads/2010/03. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
    Can anyone advise me

    Thanks

    You might want to ask your web host if they can give you a hand here. You can also read the following article:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

    But essentially, you would want to ask your web host if the can make "/home/a9693082/public_html/juniors/wp-content/uploads" writable by the user the PHP runs as. (that should make sense to them even if it doesn't make sense to you) They'll want to change the permissions recursively.
