I haveinstalled PP and have set up the database accordingly. I have also edited the required .php file. I've successfully uploaded a test image, yet, I can not see anything when I type my url to review.
Can anyone please help me? To provide more insight, this is what I've done:
Created a folder on my server called "photoblog".
Added all contentes from the unzipped PP file into this folder
Modified the includes/pixelpost.php file
Uploaded a test image that is still in my images folder thru admin
Try to review the setup and seeing nothing.
Must I specify a template or something?

please post the information from the General Info tab of your PP admin page, and the URL of your site...

Does anything look broken to you?
Oh, my site is www.devisionlab.com
My folder is called "photoblog"

When you installed PP, did you upload all files/folders directly into your "photoblog" directory exactly as it appeared after you unzipped it? The URL for your photoblog is acting as if PP doesn't even exist at all, since it isn't returning a PP error of any kind...
This will come into play later (and doesn't have anything to do with your current problem), but your version of GD-lib does not have JPEG support. This will cause issues with PP not being able to create thumbnails automatically when you upload images. Check with your host to see if they have a version of GD-lib that supports JPEG. After they resolve that, your PP admin info should show "with JPEG support" after the GD-lib version...

Oh: do you get any errors when uploading images using PP admin page?

Initially, I received errors but now I don't. I have successfully uploaded a test image that I can view from teh admin panel but that's as far as it goes.
When I unzipped the file, I moved all of the files into my photoblog folder.
Upgrade pixelpost to some newer version i.e. 1.5 beta RC2

Okay. Will do.

Okay - finally got my image to show.
Next question... do I modify the index.php file for my page layout? I seem to have code in design view and code view (Dreamweaver)
Where do I add my eye candy? =)

the only files you have to modify for your layout are based in the template folder
image_template, browse_template, about_template, etc.
