Want to transfer photos from elements to photoshop .com and creat albums. I tried to transfer but only can seem to upload from "pictures" folders in my system and then one at a time.

Are you using Photoshop Elements Organizer(PSE) to upload the photos on PS.com? If yes, then which version of PSE?

Have elements 7.
I've tried by going into my url and downloading-- but it leads me to my pictures library
in my computer (have windows 7) and lets me upload one by one. I'd like to go directly into my elements 7 which contains all the photos and transfer a good portion of them to my my photoshop.com gallery and organize them there- so I can access them anywhere.

Create an album or multiple albums of all the photos that you want to upload to Photoshop.com. While creating these albums. make sure that you select Backup/ Sync check box.

In case, backup/ Sync is grayed out then go to Edit --> Preference --> Back up and Synchronization service. Click on 'Backup/ Synchronize this catalog' button.

Sure..
1) Launch Photoshop Elements Organizer
2) On right side, under 'Organize' pane, click green colored '+' icon and select 'New Album' from the dropdown.
3) Provide a name to the album
4) Check 'Backup/ Sync' checkbox
5) Select the photos that you want to add to album.and click + sign present at the bottom of the empty space bin (you can also drag these photos into the bin)
6) Hit 'Done' button

The data will start syncing to Photoshop.com.
You can create multiple albums to sync data in multiple albums. The steps remains the same as above.

Please let me know if you face any issue.

The red icon represent that your files are present on an external hard drive.
Please connect the external hard drive. On connecting this hard drive, that red icon will go away.

Now, start synchronization once again: To start sync again:
1) Go to Edit --> Preference --> Back up and Synchronization
2) Uncheck 'Back up and Sync is ON' check box
3) Click 'Ok'
4) Again, Go to Edit --> Preference --> Back up and Synchronization
5) This time check 'Back up and Sync is ON' check box
6) Click 'Ok'

tried that--- that album is still un checked and won't sync--(that particular album remains unchecked.. and still doesn't appear in the photoshop gallery)-this is frustrating-- there doesn't seem to be any help items in Adobe for this issue

Check the album for backup/sync to appear it on Photoshop.com.

Please do following things once again to understand how sync works:

0) Close all Elements applications.

1) Launch Welcome Screen.

2) Sign Out and Sign In again on Welcome Screen.

3) Launch Elements Organizer.

4) Go to Edit --> Preference --> Back up and Synchronization' . Make sure that your Sync back up is ON.

5) Import some files from hard disk.

6) Select these images and create an album. Make sure that you check 'backup/sync' checkbox while creating album.
(Steps for same are given above)

7) Again, go to Edit --> Preference --> Back up and Synchronization' to ensure that the album that you created is marked for sync.

Also, sync takes some time to execute and upload photos.
Thank you for your patience.

Before you do above steps, one basic query:

- Are you verifying the album upload by logging into your Photoshop.com account or by using the Personal URL of Photoshop.com

Actually on Personal URL only your galleries are shown and not your all albums. Galleries are those albums which you want to share with all Photoshop.com users.
