    I guess you're saying that they appear when you upload with ftp, and do not when you use the wordpress upload function while writing a post.

    Perhaps your uploads directory is not set with the correct permissions. Typically they should be 755, but you could also try 777. Do you know how to change the permission on a dir?

    ah, ok.

    The picture is there full size, but it doesn't display the full size by default. It's easy to get the big version though.

    After you browse for the file, and it's uploaded, you see a thumbnail of it in the upload area. Just click that image, and you'll see some options. The first option is where it's set to use thumbnail. You can click on it to change it to use the full size image. (I forget the exact wording).

    There is also an option right below that says Not Linked to Image. Click that and change it to say linked to image if you want people to click the thumbnail and see the whole image.

    Play with those settings a bit, and you'll figure them out.
