I'm new to iPhoto and I need some help. Particularly with resizing and, uh, getting it to work in general.

I recently got a new ibook and uploaded some pictures on it a few days ago. Of course, they are big files (1-2 mb) and I want to resize them so I can upload them to flickr. I'm trying to "export photo" with a different size, but I get the message "Unable to create /users/myname/Pictures". I have no clue as to what I'm supposed to do with that.
Related to that - suppose I do actually get this thing to work without an error message...where am I exporting the photos to? I tend to take a lot of silly/not great photos and even if I don't want to delete all of them, I don't need the original size taking up space.
Furthermore, none of my pictures are showing up in the large edit/view area. They are in the little scroll bar thing at the top (sorry for my lack of tech. terminology), but not in the large square where you can actually do stuff to the picture. This was working the first time I opened the photos a few days ago. It appears that it's trying to do something, but it never actually gets it done.
I've checked the archives and I've found some good stuff for other options for both resizing and replacements for iphoto, but for right now, I just want this to work using what I have.
